Maestr0 is right...
AV programs are doing their job, and are picking up potentially dangerous files. and writing to them will do no good, becasue they dont care. Unless you are a BIG company that holds some weight behind your words and could effect their bottom line they will not chage their product to work with yours. Especially since the vast majority of users will NEVER use this product...ever.

Read the description that Symantec gave for what the Trojan is suppose to do, itís way beyond the stated goal of the app. Iím willing to believe itís a false positive, but since I have the source code and compiled a version that works why bother with it? Also, the source code makes one binary, why does the zip contain two?

So, let me get this straight..... You downloaded a file that.... well, basically it
STEALS PASSWORDS. And now you're freaked out because Symantec thinks that this file
STEALS PASSWORDS. Hmmmm.
Seriously, think about it. Symantec will quarantine Foundstone tools and countless others (You've never seen this before?) because if you DONT know what the program is doing on your machine, its probably not good. If you downloaded it and you know that its used to STEAL PASSWORDS, what the hell is the problem?
PS. I ran them both, they did not attempt to add any registry keys.
PPS. I also doubt its based on the filename, but on the methods and behavior of the file. I think Symantec is correct in detecting this behavior as potentially malicious, because potentially IT IS.

Didn't matter, the source you gave me could only be to one of them (the gui one).
