FP? Please wait a few days before it is fixed

So, I have made a simple batch file (it's very primitive) for resetting browsers and converted it to exe. After uploading it to VT, I was very surprised -

Detection ratio: 8/48 (at that time, there were no detections from McAfee and TrendMicro-HouseCall, but after a day - SURPRISE, they are detecting this file too (McAfee probably added the detection since McAfee Webwasher-Gateway already detected it))

So I immediately reported this FP to all vendors (except McAfee, I didn't find any link or email for submitting fp samples).

After 3 days, these are the results -

Who removed the detection -
Agnitum, McAfee, Norman, VBA32

Who added the detection after uploading the file -
TrendMicro-HouseCall and Symantec

And the best answer was from CMC support -
Hi Dashke,

We just got your file and we are working on it so please wait few days before it is fixed.

Thank you!
Yeah, thanks, just a few days.
