JS/Packed.Agent.Q was found when visiting social question-and-answer website

Hello, when I was visiting a social question-and-answer website: https://zhuanlan.zhihu.com/p/594322970, eset internet security started alerting me about JS/Packed.Agent.Q. 

However when I submitted this website to virustotal, it showed that No security vendors flagged this URL as malicious. I have tested some other websites under zhuanlan.zhihu.com, eset still alerted me with JS/Packed.Agent.Q whereas visiting zhihu.com did not have this alert. I have used a completely new web browser to visit this website but still the same result. I am rather confused by this situation, and I don't want to simply create a detection exclusion to expose my computer to unknown threat. 

Is there anyway to fix this problem.

The logs collected by eset log collector and log file from eset internet security are attached below.

It's just a suspicious JS obfuscation used on the website. If you trust the website, you can create a detection exclusion for that site.
