We currently get reports about 
http://www.erlang.org/download/otp_win32_R12B-2.exe
being infected with "Trojan horse Generic 10.MHB",
the contained file Uninstall.exe.

It is the antivirus programs AVG 7.5 and AVG 8 that
report this. The file scans fine with Symantec
Antivirus 8.1, so it is probably a false positive.

We are trying to get a response from AVG Techologies.

When you download, check the MD5 sum to be sure you
got what you wanted. And if you want to be sure,
wait and see if this is a real problem.
