Arduino-0017 trojan detected?

When I started extracting the Windows version of Arduino-0017, my antivirus (McAfee VScan Enterprise) detected a trojan within the folders. It said the program "dd.exe" was a trojan named "Artemis!7A2A979E173C".

I assume there isn't actually a trojan, but I wanted to see if anyone else has been getting this error? I haven't found any information on the dd.exe program, so any info would be much appreciated. Thanks!

This looks relevant...

I suspect DD.EXE is this...

I figured it might be something like that. I might just try deleting dd.exe and see if any errors come up.

I just wonder if I'm the only one to get this in the current Arduino IDE build?

Here is a analysis from Virus total of the dd.exe file:

Only 2 programs see it as trojan or virus.

I did some digging, and it seems that the dd.exe name has a reputation as a trojan (or part of its payload) in the windows world, so it might just be an unfortunate side effect of using that name for the executable... :-/ One example:
