Hi,

This is my first attempt at installing Apache using A2T. During installation, McAfee Virusscan reported the SlimFTP virus in ServiceTool.exe. Since I intend to use a different ftp server, I deleted the file. But what's up with this?

hello there,

McAfee reports it as a virus because there are some trojans out there that have slifmtpd in them, so it thinks you installed some sort of virus / trojan but you didnt you just installed slimftpd no need to be worried.
