McAfee analysis not detecting a sample

McAfee Labs - Beaverton                                                               

Current Scan Engine Version:6100.8979                                                 

Current DAT Version:10736.0000                                                       

Thank you for your submission.                                                       


Analysis ID: 11161347


Automated analysis was not able to determine that this file is malware. This file is 

being sent for further processing and the DAT files will potentially be updated if   

detection of this sample is warranted.                                             


McAfee Labs has found no indications of malicious code. Upon examining the file we   

observed no malicious behavior.           

Can I get this sample detected ?

Re: McAfee analysis not detecting a sample

The real time scanning is turned on. Most of the times virustotal analysis shows a sample being detected by McAfee GW edition but not by McAfee. Anyways as I provided the analysis id please check it on your end for more details and this threat has multiple detections over virustotal.
