Virus in Gimp

I don't know wha to make of this, I run Gimp as a standalone app on my computer.
I reformated my hard drive the other day and for some reason when I loaded Gimp portable, a pop-up came up saying there was a trojan virus in Mosaic, and it kept on running. I can't remember if Mosaic is a Script-Fu or a filter, but when I had previously scanned the folder with both AVG and McAfee it didn't report a virus. Any ideas?

False Positive

It's most likely a false positive, but if you wish to check, grab this file:
GIMPPortable\App\gimp\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\mosaic.exe

And submit it here:

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

Re: False Positive on mosaic.exe in Gimp

The scan reported it didn't find any viruses at this time, but that a full anti-virus service would better determine it. What is a false positive?
