[scribus] Exploit.PDF.b.gen

I now found a way to scan with McAfee just the pdfs exported with 
scribus. And it always complains about freshly generated pdfs. The older 
pdfs in the folder he accepts as OK. He even finds the virus if I only 
export one page containing only text ...

Please help with this, because my magazine is nearly finished and the 
problem is that McAfee just deletes the fresh pdf, not cleans it ...
