wcgrid_gfam_vina_6.12_windows_intelx86 is being pegged by Norton's SONAR as a "high security risk". I'm pretty sure it's not, but could someone check to be sure?

Wish Norton would peg itself as a hi security risk. Plz follow WCG forums. It's the usual false positive by this security suite whenever a new version of a science app comes along [which means that as there was simultaneous new versions for DSFL/GFAM/SN2S/CFSW, you could see it for all of these whenever the first starts executing]. I beta tested these and approved them for Avast [on my machines of course]. Because the md5sum was same for the production versions, they did not pop up a 'wanna sandbox' alert.
