first upload the file to www.virustotal.com and test it with 43 malware scanners
when you have the result, copy the URL in the address bar and post it here


files can be sendt in a password protected zip.file to virus @ avast . com
zip password: infected 
mail subject: undetected sample


or you can move the file to the virus chest and send it from there

It will be sendt with next avast update or if you do a manual update, so you can try that...

and i think a copy will remain in the chest
