If you look at the content, it actually apepars as a .exe+ file; that is
a sign it's a password-protected file, and what some AV products are
using to detect this virus.
While that may not avoid some false positives - how common are password-
protecxted ZIPs really? - it certainly _is_ safe. Much safer than
letting it through. And yes, companies _are_ using that; after all,
there are alternative ways to transport files securely.
