Oops, don't know why I came up as guest when I posted this.

Anyways, thought I'd pass this along since it's in beta.

Do you bundle OpenCandy with WinSCP ?

4.3.4 Triggering McAfee

FYI, downloading the latest WinSCP installer triggers a McAfee UWP definition (unwanted program.. i.e. Adware) by default. Or at least it did on my system. Looks like it is once again being classified as adware despite it just being an installer only thing.

Here is the log entry from McAfee:

7/28/2011 8:43:21 AM Deleted XXXX\XXXXXX C:\Users\XXXXXX\AppData\Local\Temp\is-G5PEJ.tmp\winscp434setup.tmp C:\Users\XXXXXX\AppData\Local\Temp\is-L1PNT.tmp\OCSetupHlp.dll Adware-OpenCandy.dll (Adware)

Re: 4.3.4 Triggering McAfee

Thanks. This was reported to McAfee as a false possitive already.

If you are concerned anyway (no reason for that, but still...) you can download Installation package without OpenCandy from Download page.
