Hi. Just found some game, but avast alams as it have virus "Win32:TeslaCrypt-D [Trj]". Other antiviruses seems dont alarm.
Can you test it and say - if it's false alarm, or true.

You are wrong.
As clearly can be seen in the Virustotal result, others sure do detect malicious things.

I mean - only 4 rare antiviruses alarms but that's absolutely different alarms, and it seems it's not a virus really, but some suspicious code. Could someone investigate it?

Different av vendors have different names for things.
If you see reports with different names, it doesn't mean they detected something different.

Every virus is malware, but not every malware is a virus.
True viruses are really  rare nowadays.

Your request/remark should not be in this thread as it has nothing to do with the topic.
