    Angry Malicious downloaded files, passible false positives

    hi,
    when I have downloaded the following files, they are reported as containing malware by the advanced heuristic scan, they all 'supposedly' have the same characteristics;

    'Malicious Behaviour Observed:
    This file silently creates new malicious executable files on your system, and also examines other legitimate programs on your PC to try and break into them.'

    Audacity 1.3 Beta (Unicode)
    http://download.cnet.com/Audacity/30...ml?tag=mncol;1

    Could these files/downloads be examined more closely by the Zonelabs technicians to find out if they really are malicious or as I suspect, false positives...

    Thank you,
    regards,
    rosshi
