I'm running on Windows 7 64-bit, virus scanner is ESET NOD32.
The specific file is http://cdn.stonetrip.com/players/1.8.1/installer/S3DInstaller2.jar and the exact message is "probably a variant of Java/Rowandal.A trojan".

I just ran into the same issue with a little test game of mine:
Win7 64bit Prof., NOD32 anti virus 4 getting:
Threat: Probably a variant of java/Rowindal.A trojan
For now, I just deactivated the AV and installed it, but I guess "normal" users cant do this if they dont have any admin rights

I hope to receive more information about this.

Which in English says that the URL was listed among the malware spreading pages, so it was blocked.

our installer is virus free and our website does neither host nor distribute malware. NOD32 is also the only scanner that gives you this false positive. we have tried contacting ESET weeks ago, to no success, so it is unlikely that they will take our website off their index.

You know it wasn't a totally calming message for my potential client that the makers of the plugin are unlikely to be able to correct the situation.

also, how can 2 runs of the same service with the same file yield 2 different results. the virusTotal results do not signify viruses at all, they just show that our site may be malicious. only 3 out of 36 checkers gave the "malicious" warning - on grounds unknown, all the "big" companies gave us a green light.
in fact, the actual virus check on the very same site turns out negative: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/affe962f56e41b806e4db65e22db12bcee7ecc2df261a065058c9282e2e27b0f/analysis/1362408106/
FYI, stonetrip.com and shivaengine.com link to the same site/webspace. all tests run with shivaengine.com turn out negative. now you be the judge of how reliable this service is. i know this is hard to sell to a low-tech customer who believes in virus and malware checkers. therefor we will try to resolve these issues if possible.
please keep us informed about your email correspondence with ESET, because they seemed to ignore us when we contacted them weeks ago.
PS: personally, i believe that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and we can only run the virus checkers on our software so often with no warnings going off to prove to everyone that it is clean. additionally, all shiva-builds are created on a non-internet connected virtual machine. so we take great care in producing the software. it makes me sad that a company just has to call itself "internet security" and accuse a company like us of hosting malicious sites/software without backing their claims, and is immediately believed by customers.
