Microsoft Forefront is flagging the Auto FE Updater as a virus

I’ve just received an email from a user of the Auto FE Updater stating that Microsoft Forefront is flagging the StartMDB.exe as a virus.  

If this happens to you try a newer or older version of the utility.   Also please use the Microsoft Forefront Client Security Support Options page to inform them of the false positive.  

When I receive more details from the user such as the version number I’ll update this blog entry.
