gamer11200 From the RNA World's project homepage

Since a few days, some of the current virus scanners, as e.g. AntiVir, report a virus threat for the RNA World-associated file graphics_0.06_windows_intelx86.exe. This is a false positive detection that relates to the imperfect heuristics of these types of software. We have already informed the the antivirus scanner company AntiVir and they confirmed that this file is NOT a virus (we have that in writing!). As a consequence, the false-positive detection will be fixed in one of the next scanner updates. However, you need to take immediate action to prevent your machines from trashing one RNA World WU after the other if your system is Windows-based. You need to exclude the RNA World work directory from being scanned as long as the company has not fixed that issue
