Ok Catched after 23 minutes not so good. :/

I dont have the sample so all I can do is speculate but this "long" time to detect isnt a problem with BD's behavior blocker, maybe the sample was dormant (delayed execution) and only reached malicious threshold after 23 minutes (tried to download/run something, called home and so on).

How is BD’s PUP detection these days? With ESET malwarebytes and the rest basically sit and spit out zeros.
As others have said, it's terrible. Dr.Web has by far the best PUP detection. It detects well over 4,000 PUPs, as you can see in the screenshot.

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.
