Avira Anti-Virus vs. WSJT7, WSJT9

Starting last night, the Avira Anti-Virus 2013's (http://www.avira.com) scanner started reporting both WSJT7.EXE and WSJT9.EXE as a "RISK," particularly "a program that might possibly be able to affect the security of your system, might trigger activities you might not want or might violate your privacy." Not the number of "mights" in that description.

I submitted both as false positives, but their analysts persist in this conclusion.

I've added exclusions for both programs to the scanner, so I won't be troubled any more, but it was annoying enough that I thought I'd mention it here.
