Trojan.Generic.12240041 found in ANgel

I've been having issues with Angel together with my F-Secure Anti-virus software for a while but today when updating to 2.18 alpha2 it completely barfed at me.
After having downloaded the new file but before I had a chance to actually run the installer the anti-virus software put the file into quarantine and removed all traces of it form my system.
The information I get directs me to this site:
https://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/tro...wnloader.shtml

And the thing it claims to have found is called "Trojan.Generic.12240041" which is a very unhelpful name.

Is there anything to this? Is there a way I can get around it and continue using this excellent program?

Thanks for reporting, and sorry for the inconvenience...
This was obviously a false positive. I checked with VirusTotal, and "only" 9 out of 56 antiviruses detected a problem. False detections happen from time to time, since antiviruses search against a huge number of code signatures, that they're bound to find something sometimes. In any case, I'll try to check future versions before releasing them, like I did with v2.18a3 which was found clean.

Thank you very much. I assumed as much, but since I could not get the anti-virus program to accept anything I did I tried this approach. I'm happy to be able to continue using this excellent program (even though I haven't played Utopia for several years).
