Risk detected in "SkypeSetupFull.exe" by VirusTotal

I have downloaded "SkypeSetupFull.exe" from Skype.com

VirusTotal has detected "PE:Malware.XPACK-LNR/Heur!1.5594" ... by "Rising" AV ... VirusTotal result

Is this a risk, or false positive ?

Rising AV is a lesser known tool. Scan using OPSWAT. If no major players flag it, then its safe to assume it's a false positive.

I would agree. I have downloaded that setup file for skype; and ran it and installed it with no problems at all. So yes i too would say its a false positive.

Seeing as only one anti-virus engine said it was bad, that would be considered a false positive. If most of them said it was bad then you should be concerned.
