Just thought I'd let you folks know about this one. Some of us, are still
using Windows for things here and there. I mistakenly downloaded
Gorm-1.2.10-setup.exe thinking it was the latest version. It installed just
fine,  but when I went to run it, I was surprised that AVG flagged it as
"Exploit.DJU". I suggest you do some or all of the following:

1) Verify that Gorm-1.2.10-setup.exe both matches the signature file, was
signed by the official packager, and is in fact the official release of
Gorm-1.2.10-setup.exe, and if not replace it with the correct file.

2) Verify that, even if it was the official signed build, verify that it
wasn't infected on the package maintainer's machine at time of build. If so,
probably time for a new official build.

3) Rename the file to be consistent with other versions of the gorm
installer, so it doesn't float to the top of the directory listing and get
mistaken for the latest version.

4) Include a not on the download page indicating that that version either
was infected by a virus/trojan, and has been replaced, or was a false
positive from AVG, and that you're working with AVG to remedy the problem.

5) If the detection was in fact a false positive, contact AVG and see what
they can do to exclude it from their fingerprint match.

I hope these suggestions help.
