How to notify? ZDNet download "WinRemotePC Lite" infected with a virus!!!

By hnoyes ·
I tried to download the "WinRemotePC Lite" application from ZDNet. My company's network security filters popped up the following window:
WARNING: ProxyAV has detected a virus/PUS in this

File has been dropped.

ProxyAV Administrator:,

Hardware serial number: 1507084175
ProxyAV (Version -
Antivirus Vendor: Kaspersky Labs
Scan Engine Version:
Pattern File Version: 080**1.160218.1213098 (Timestamp: 2008.09.11 16:02:1

Machine name: av2-boid
Machine IP address:
Protocol: ICAP

Virus/PUS: "Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Delf.hgw" found!

How do I notify ZDNet of this? I could not find any way, other than "submit a question", which I did. Any other suggestions?

Mind you, that's not to say that Avast isn't wrong.

You can utilise the 'Site Help & Feedback' button at the bottom of every screen if you want a more direct form of notification. :)

Quite common really where a AV Scanner incorrectly reports a File as Infected when it's not. It's more to do with the way that the scanner works or is configured.

It downloaded cleanly here and passes scans on AVG, Trend Micro, Bullguard and a few others lesser known products.

As for contacting TR on the bottom of every TR Page is a Blue Envelope with the words Site Help & Feedback beside it if you left click on this you can send information to the Site Owners.
