This morning Clamwin updated and flagged a file in my installation of Adobe Acrobat 6.0 as a virus. I know Acrobat had a vulnerability identified earlier this year, but no other virus scanner sees this as a problem. I ran a couple of them.

The specifics are:

E:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\plug_ins\Printme\ConsoleApp.exe: Trojan.Agent-126462

Since you have already checked the file with other AVs (I like to use Jotti or VirusTotal because of their multiple scanners), it's time to upload the file to Clam, tell them you think it is a false positive, and tell the name of the virus that is falsely detected. Go to http://www.clamav.net/sendvirus/ on the web.
