FALSE: Removal request - VirusTotal detected by McAfee

Hey there!

McAfee detected a malicious file, BehavesLike.Win32.AdwareAdload.wc, on VirusTotal. I am requesting the review of the file, alongside the removal of the flag from VirusTotal and from your database.

Here's the link to VirusToral: VirusTotal - File - e7546a5a0575305ab35c7f9ecd437611f14615a617110b0bb2234486e0357a5d

Domain name: metropolecontabil.com.br

Thank you!

Kind regards

Hi Venkat

I've read the article before, but since I don't use McAfee antivirus and don't have it installed I was wondering if you guys couldn't run the file, as it's a legitimate file it wouldn't be a problem. In any case, the false positive is being flagged by McAfee on VirusTotal so it wouldn't even make sence for me to scan it on my machine anyway. 

Thanks in advance,
