Just an update on the status of the problems we've had with AV vendors lately.

McAfee has clarified the wording during detection and the entry on their site
to clearly state that distributed.net client is simply a piece of software
that has in the past been installed on computers through use of trojans. They
explain how to identify if the software was legitimately installed. They also
mention that the option to detect "possibly unwanted" applications is not on by
default.

Norton has also removed the signatures that were identifying dnetc.com as a
trojan.
