New submission from Brett Rasmussen <brett.rasmussen at inl.gov>:

The antivirus program 'AVG Business Edition' reported that the file 
python-2.7.14.amd64.msi contained "Trojan horse SCGeneric_c6.HJQ".

The virustotal.com web site reported a match on MD5
  370014d73c3059f610c27365def62058  for file python-2.7.14.amd64.msi

  (i.e. Baidu  Win32.Trojan.WisdomEyes.16070401...)

Hopefully these are just 'false positives' ?
