Virus in AbiWord?

I have installed PortableApps suite light. During installation Norton Internet Security detected and removed pluginlatex.dll file from plugin folder in AbiWord. It has classified it as Suspicious.Cloud Heurestic Virus.

I have run this file through Virus Total - no other virus engine detects it except TrendMicro which calls it positive PAK_Generic.001

I assumed it is false positive and have written email to Symantec about it.

I have deleted AbiWord from my USB drive and reinstalled stand alone portable application. What is interesting that there was no pluginlatex.dll file in plugin folder.

I have repeated suite installation - pluginlatex.dll shows up again.

Why is it present in Suite installation but not in stand alone application?

Different Version

The version in the suite is newer than the standalone download. At least it is for the next 20ish hours.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
