I highly doubt they do scan (much, if at all) other formats for other OSes. It's mostly a Windows problem.

Though "Reanalyze" shows ClamAV reporting "Osx.Malware.Agent-6370979-0". (Maybe I missed that before!)

I already reported the .ZIP to them, but maybe you think the URL would be more obvious?

Anyways, it now says "Avast : Clean" (on VirusTotal), but you're still getting 33/60 other false positives (most saying "generic", ugh).

Obviously you don't need my advice, but couldn't you split the Win32 .EXEs in half or something? Just make the end user recombine them. Heck, nop out the entire PE header, and add a plain text script to somehow recombine it. Heck, just .ZIP encrypt binw*.exe (like Japheth had to do with HX) with the password being (I don't know) "password". Put the password in the .ZIP comment (and/or readme), for full transparency.

Or not, I'm sure you don't need my ideas.
