ClamWin: clam false virus detection

Hi, I have the latest version of clamwin portable installed and on the hwinfo.paf.exe file it keeps showing it as a virus
when scanned. Also all the new jre java stand alone installers offline (jre-8u66-windows-i586.exe) and updates 60 and 65
keeps showing up as virus`s when scanned. I scanned them with windows defender and virus total and they say no virus.
I tried to contact the database guys but have had no luck.
Thanks, sincerely

Report and Wait

The only thing you can do is report it to Clam and wait: http://cgi.clamav.net/sendfp.cgi

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

John,

a previous update earlier this week, listed several apps* as viruses. Jotti and Virus Total showed otherwise. The def update for today, 01/21 has fixed it. *Firefox and the platform
