It may also be worth contacting Intego's support to let them know about
what appears to be a false positive.
Many AV packages use Bloom filters, which are very good at finding
pattern matches quickly across large sets, but with the trade-off of
being very prone to false-positives.
We see this sort of thing here on the list every few years. Several
years ago AVG for Windows was flagging not only LC but every standalone
made with it as a virus. Several of us contacted AVG and they responded
quickly by creating an exception for the errant pattern match for LC.
In fact, they were so quick and friendly about it I started using AVG as
my AV solution for Windows.
Hopefully we'll have as good an outcome here with Intego.
