Heuristic.ArchiveBomb is a packed file that tries to crash malware scanners. It is usually not dangerous for your PC, but is dangerous for software like a-squared or any other antivirus scanners. If a scanner can not handle such archivebombs correctly, it may crash and leave the PC unprotected.
...Heuristic is a technique to detect Malware that ignores whether the detection can be proven to be correct, but which usually ensures a good detection rate. A heuristic detection module searches for Malware specific patterns such as Win-API calls.
A file detected as Heuristic.* looks like Malware, but you should always check them if it may be a false alert. If you are not sure, please always use the quarantine and do not delete such files immediately.
You can also submit such files for further analysis to the analysis team. Please see the contact page for more about this.
