False positive hulahulamoocow.com

We've checked EVERY FILE in the host. No viruses. No "Trojan," no nothing.
Completely false positive.

(We've run an IT company for 21 years, so if WE can't find a virus? IT. AIN'T. THERE.)

Could you please kindly correct this error so our client can function properly and so that their customers confidence isn't undermined by your software's mistake?

We truly appreciate it.

That's an IP scanner tool I use at client's places to find printers when there's over 200 machines on the network. I keep it in a subdirectory for convenient download.  It's called Angry IP scanner (which I admit doesn't SOUND benign, but it is), but I shall remove it if it suits the whims of your crawler's algorithm. Any chance you could tell me how/where on the server I CAN store it for easy access?

Thanks very much for the info. I'll remove it in the meantime, but if you can tell me a good way to make it available to myself without your bot having a hissy fit I'd truly appreciate it. I'm guessing to store it in a subdirectory not referenced by any links?

Thanks again!

Either way, it's removed for now. Please restore the client's site - and I'm guessing any other site we host as that IP address - to working order.  If you've got any advice on the other question I'd be grateful. Thanks.

Thanks! Followup question:

That file is in a filedump directory that shouldn't be searchable. How on earth did the bot get hold of it? Unless it's from when we tried to use it on someone's MB-protected computer.
