Suspicions file not getting recognized as a threat


I downloaded installation file Install_0007.exe, but bitdefender didn't recognize it as a threat upon scan. However once I run it there was message:

Advanced Threat Defense
Application Install_0007.exe has been detected as potentially malicious and was blocked. 

I would like to know if Install_0007 is a malware and if so what it does?

    Only the anti-malware researchers at Bitdefender Labs can help you with the issue.

    You should report the file as false negative to Bitdefender Labs here:

    You could also share the VirusTotal link of the file that was not detected to the malware researchers:


  • Hello @serhii and welcome to the Community!

    As per @Gjoksi's advice, the sample should be submitted to the Bitdefender Labs for analysis.

    Kindly be advised I have removed the attachment from your post, in accordance with the forum rules:

    I submitted that file to Bitdefender Labs as suggested. But still, is it possible to know what software does and possibly mitigate negative impact?  

    Maybe someone knows
