Installing SynFire 1.8 gives 'Mal/FakeAV-SE' virus/spyware alert

Anyone else seeing this?

this is an annoying false alarm. if you download from cognitione.com there is no risk of catching a virus.

Sophos acknowledge that this is a false positive and have updated their virus definitions.  No warnings happen now. smiley
