Where did you get CCL? Did you download it via Subversion from or get it from or from somewhere else? If you'll provide some more information on where you got your copy of CCL, that would help someone take a look.

I'm inclined to think that your anti-virus software is reporting a false positive. Have you tried scanning your wx86cl.exe with some other anti-virus product in order to verify the reported result?

I scanned wx86cl.exe from the zip file at two online virus scanning sites. Here are the results:

(I don't know how long these URLs will remain valid, but I'll paste them here anyway.)

On the VirusTotal site, 1/51 scanners flagged a potential virus (Bkav flagged HW32.Nonim.pgow). On Metascan, 2/40 scanners flagged a potential virus: ByteHero flagged Trojan.Win32.Heur.Gen, and F-secure flagged Suspicious:W32/Malware!Online.

I conclude that these are false positives. I'm closing this ticket.
