I've scanned the file but no virus was reported. All I got was a report of a suspicious application (SecurityUnifier.exe - a variant of MSIL/Packed.Confuser.J suspicious application) which is far from the definition of virus or malware per se. If something is suspicious because it was packed or protected using a packer/protector often misused by malware authors to evade detection, don't wonder that it will be reported as suspicious by AV scanners.

 

You can report it to the ESET Security Research Lab as per the instructions at hxxp://support.eset.com/kb141/.
