> I retested that file from August and detections are still 15/70. I tried the latest nightly with kaiju.ico embedded and the number of detected has [dropped to 11/71](https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/7cacc6e086b4897e5e19ee33ee9ff667add0dcebaf5ae6dcb2f4d7b95160b5c9/detection), no longer including most of the major virus scanners. The only ones I've heard of are BitDefender and Ad-Aware.

Bad news, had another look, and I see that that file was reanalysed a week later (I don't remember doing that), and detections jumped back up to 18, again including TrendMicro, McAfee and Windows Defender (which detects it as "Presenoker"). Reanalysed and now it's 19/71. So this problem has not gone away at all.
