Ikarus     Trojan-Proxy.Win32.Delf     20170721
Rising     Win32.Indcu.a (classic)     20170721

 

2 out of 63 AV systems identify this as a potential hazard.

It most likely is a [url=http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/what-false-positive-antivirus-detection.htm[/color].

You should 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....NFO Maker Support...submit a ticket.

Those were valid links at one time but looks like they were taken and down/redirected as you indicate. I replaced them with working links.
