    I checked the VT link results, and it seems that the detection is Not a heuristic detection by NOD anyway. But if it is an FP or not is hard to say, though if ESET stays as the only vendor that detects it the chance it is an FP is higher. But let's wait for Eset's reply on this to be sure.

    Yes I know.

    Sometimes it can take ages to get an answer from ESET, and if you are really unlucky you maybe don't get an reply until Monday after the weekend:)

    But as I said, if ESET stays as the only vendor who detects the file, then it's more likely it is an FP.
