Latest Release has a Virus?

Asked by Ford Smith

McAfee claims it found a virus: Real Protect-SS!0466D148E408 in C:\Program Files\Hugin\bin\hugin.exe.

I downloaded the msi from Source Forge. What's the story?

Check the checksum of the downloaded file with the one posted in the release announcement:!topic/hugin-ptx/JIMU_F3Oa5A

If the checksums differ, the file was corrupted during download.
If the checksums match, then it is a false positive message from the virus scanner.

Can you help with this problem?
