I downloaded Bluestacks Player from the official Website. I scanned the installer on virustotal.com and 1 antivirus program found a "Worm/Win32.WhiteIce.gen" from the installer. Is this a false positive?

What anti-virus detected it? Antiy-AVL uses the Worm/Win32.WhiteIce.gen name.

If a legitimate program is detected by only one detection engine, it most likely is a false positive but to make sure, try another site to see what results they give.You should also contact and advise the program vendor that one of their files is being detected as a threat. In many cases they will work with the anti-virus techs in an attempt to resolve the detection.

Thanks for the quick response. Yes, "Antiy-AVL" was the antivirus program that detected the virus. Jotti and virscan.org didn't find a virus from the installer.

That increases the likelihood the detections was a false positive.
