Trojan in 2.6 Beta or False Positive?

I have installed beta 2.6 1310 on my desktop, been using it for some time in netbook with no virus alarm (Avira 10). Upon download I got a Trojan Dropper Gen alarm, now when I boot Win I always get this warning on 2.6 uninstall.exe
(same version Avira 10) . Anyone with this problem? false positive?

Re: Trojan in 2.6 Beta or false positive?

Alex...
The setup package is built on a virtual machine serving just this purpose, not doing anything else and running on a Linux server inaccessible from the internet. I would also be very surprised if it was infected and the infection was not reported by my other machines running partly NOD32 and MSSE which both score pretty well in the antivirus software tests. From a quick search it looks like Avira reports false positives for this particular trojan in other SW as well.
Further, the uninstaller is generated on your machine during the installation, so any infection in it can just originate from local stuff or VERY sophisticated techniques during the package creation.
