I think you should at least quarantine the item and submit it to whoever is your Antivirus Vendor.


You should note the following :

1 : The file is packed with SVKProtector .
Many AV-programs, especially those using “heuristics” aka “guessing” and the cheapo ones
don’t like files packed with such tools and will flag them as “suspicious” or even call them “trojan” or
“mallware” instead of telling the truth : “Unable to scan the content of the file”
( and that is also why “hackers” use packers and obfuscators when trying to hide their evil code btw)

2 : None of the “big” AV-programs (Kaspersky, Symantec etc etc)
seem to have a problem with the file . This is usually a good indicator for a “false positive”

When I get a file like that I usually wait a couple of days and re-submit it to virustotal .
If the “big” AV’s still don’t have a problem with the file then it’s a false positive …

Thx for the reply… It really enrich my knowledge… Well, i submit it to and they said that the file is a damaged file (Malware). 'Coz they found some malicious codes in it.

Great news! At least Avira managed to catch the file as Suspicious.
