Default ioGUIExt detected as Virus by McAfee

Been using ioFTPD for ages now, and today needed a quick FTPD at work for some backup work.

Unfortunately my workplace installation of McAfee:
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise
Version number: 8.8.0 (
Scan engine version (32-bit): 5400.1158
DAT version: 6494.0000
DAT Created on: 10/9/2011

Detected ioGUIExt as a virus when I unpacked the zip file - both for 7.7.2 and 7.7.3:

Detected as "Generic.dx!sty
Detection Type: Trojan.
Status: Deleted

This ofc. gives me an error when starting the FTPD, but otherwise it runs just fine - but without the GUI... (Which is a bit annoying).

I have attached the alert I got.

Hope you can resolve this with McAfee... as I am sure you are not handing out Trojans to your users
