Why is SmartFTP being detected as a virus?

SmartFTP is a virus free application, which uses an EXE compression technique that sometimes causes virus scanners such as McAfee to incorrectly report that SmartFTP is infected. We have never had a virus in any of our software product releases. We incorporate the most stringent procedures available to make sure all of our releases are thoroughly scanned. Our downloads are always scanned before they are uploaded, and you can rest assured they are perfectly safe.

Update the definition files to the latest available, and download the newest available version of SmartFTP.
