Beware -- Trojan virus in 0.5.9

Hi all,
I previously tried downloading Calibre 0.5.9 a couple days ago and my virus checker said there was a trojan virus Generic!Artemis. I thought decided to wait a couple days to download it and today I just tried and I got an Artemis virus warning again.

I've done numerous scans on my hard drives so I'm positive my computer was clean before downloading Calibre.

Beware.

That's a false positive, i.e., a mistaken identification by the antivirus program you use. calibre is an open source program, you can always examine the source code yourself to guarantee the absence of malicous code.

ARGH! I hate when virus checkers do that! I thought it was weird that you would have a virus on your program, but I was just posting what my computer kept saying. I'll try again.

Thanks.
