Something not being detect by a particular product in Virus Total does not mean that product does not detect it on the consumer/business version. Virus Total uses the Linux version of the scanner, does not have all the modules of the desktop version and does not necessarily have the latest signatures loaded.

We have seem examples of this many times in this forum. Virus Total is good to check if a file is suspicious but not to check if a particular engine would detect it in a real infection situation.

In my experience, the best way to submit malwares to Bitdefender is to send to Emsisoft via email. I submitted a particular malware to BD multiple times in the past but they never added that to their signatures. It was an old sample. Then I submitted to Emsisoft via email and they replied they'll forward that to Bitdefender team. Then within 18 hours Bitdefender added the signature of that malware to their database.
As my sample was forwarded to them via Emsisoft, they gave that sample a higher priority hence created the signature as fast as they could.
