    I checked it using Virustotal but didn't post the analysis link as I think it violates a forum rule.

    LOL Hopefully it's not spreading to their tech partners that are using the BD engine :D

    Quick googling reveals that the same filename is used by a couple of fake AVs. Perhaps the contents are slightly similar too. I can't imagine premier AVs flagging files just because of the filenames.

    Well f-secure client security 9 RC which uses the bitdefender engine doesnt detect that file as infected. so obviously hasnt spread to oem's using the BD engine.

    Interesting detection names.
    Looks like less AVs are detecting it copared to before, so detections (FPs) are maybe getting fixed slowly.

    It's a BD component, Would make no sense for it to detect it self. What really matters is if alot of Other AV's are flagging it as malware.

    The names which came up for me belong to age old file infectors like monxla and simple overwriting viruses like trivial.

    Flagged by what exactly? I presume one of your other security programs flagged it and then you checked it on VirusTotal.
