Well,there is something from avg that I am seeing very often while searching for samples.

Win32:DH-A1 or Win32:DH-A2 are detection names from avg looks more like some heuristics .I am typing this on my phone.I will attach a screenshot of it tomorrow.

That is correct. A1 and A2 are variations, not sure what that means. Got it from Milos

Harmless FP is a good thing means they are improving the detection   ;)

I couldn't quite find threads about the detection from the search function might be because I am on the phone.

It seems like some AI Heuristic detection from AVG.Picks up some of my undetected  samples quite regularly. :)

Btw,thanks for info pondus.Interesting stuff guys.

Best,
TI
