Ugh, Sophos did a doozy yesterday afternoon (bout 3pm MDT).

Released an ide for their A/V software that generated a false positive,
which in turn partially crippled Sophos' ability to update itself.
Nice unanticipated project fixing the stragglers.

How do you know that antivirus heuristics are all ****? When you get
enough "patterns" you start matching everything. Thanks-you Sophos for
making that obvious for customers.

Good luck (to the Sophos users).
