Virustotal is planning a service that notifies you if your program's being detected, furthermore supporting you with the actual false-positive complaint process(es) ...

It's a paid service, so beware! My experience: I've had false positives come and go with VirusTotal for the same unchanged executable, so paying is probably not needed. That is, one day my exe is "infected" with 30 viruses, but a month or two later when it's re-scanned again, it magically has only 3 or 4 "viruses" this time. No joke! :evil:

Got to love how companies want to profit even more from sloppy AV detection.

Personally i would prefer to invest some time into writing a generator for random executables for different languages. Then feed the executables into virustotal and make a nifty ranking chart about the amount of false positives by product and language. Just for the fun of showing the laughable state of the AV industry nowadays.
