We have realized that a file in the Bamse distribution in Hackage is
being flagged by some virus scanners as malicious, including Symantec
We have worked with Microsoft, Symantec, and McAfee to analyze the data.
All parties have concluded that this file is not malicious, but we
wanted to let the community know in case you run across a similar issue.
We have notified the maintainer.
Symantec and McAfee have updated their rules accordingly and will no
longer flag this file, but other virus scanners might continue to flag it.
Note that if you use Bamse to build MSI packages, inclusion of this file
could cause some scanners to flag the package. The details of this file
are as follows:
File name: Folder.exe
File Size: 83249 byte
From the package description: "Bamse is a framework for building
Windows Installers for your Windows applications, giving you a
comprehensive set of features to put together MSIs using Haskell."
