my mirror, which is rsynced from rsync.apache.org::apache-dist, and presumably other mirrors
from the same source. I’m not sure how long the exploit has been there, or even if it’s
a false positive, but thought I should let you know. 

Thank you very much for your message.

I've double-checked the file (on your mirror and apache.org) and according
to www.virustotal.com only Clamav (1 out of 55 virus scanners) considers 
it as infected. Also, the infection  mentioned by Clamav is for a CVE 
from 2012, but the file itself was last updated in 2009. 
I'm therefore considering it a false positive. 

Best regards
Lars Eilebrecht
