Well, this "bloodhound" thing is some kind of heuristics, trying to identify "unknown" viruses. It certainly has a number of false positives (recently, a number of false positives for executable packers appeared). So, I wouldn't be so sure it's a real virus.
In any case, you're welcome to submit the file for analysis.
