When only two of 42 scanners detect it and both are using Generic detections there is a high possibility that it is a false positive.

Generic signatures (the -gen or .gen in the malware name), are trying to catch multiple variants of the same type of malware and is a fine balance between detecting a new variant and detecting something valid as infected.

So if you can post the details of the detection from the SAS log file, Preferences, Statistics/Logs tab in SAS ?
Or what was it that detected it or made you suspicious of it ?

OK if you are only submitting a URL to VT for it to download and analyse no problem, you have the choice to go with the two generic detections and not bother to download the file. But it isn't a clear cut issue that avast isn't detecting it but 40 other scanners aren't detecting it.

Yes, someone has to be first to detect it, but when that is generic it requires further analysis.

They won't unless you send them a sample.

Send the sample/s to avast as a Undetected Malware:
Open the chest and right click in the Chest and select Add, navigate to where you have the sample and add it to the chest (see image). Once in the chest, right click on the file and select 'Submit to virus lab...' complete the form and submit, the file will be uploaded during the next update.

That doesn't move the file only copies the file so you have to decide what you are going to do with the original in the meantime, uninstall the program/rename or delete the file (rename being safer, but you do have the copy in the chest. Periodically scan the file to see if it has been added the the virus signatures.

~~~~
There is another on-line analysis tool you could try that - Anubis: Analyzing Unknown Binaries, is another scanning tool that is very useful, Anubis: Analyzing Unknown Binaries. Post a link to the results page.

I would say based on that it is highly suspect and should be sent to avast for analysis and removed from your system, e.g. uninstall the application it came with.

On that subject what did this come with and what was it meant to do as that might give a reason for some of the changes ?

The Summary provides adequate warning about the risk without having to fully understand the detailed analysis.

1. I would say send it through the chest as you have a copy in a safe location that you can periodically scan from within the chest to monitor the outcome of any analysis.

2. Yes but what does/is the file/program meant to do, you don't just download a file for no purpose.

If you had no intention of downloading it then it should have been history long ago.
