I was trying to play a H.266 file (also called Versatile Video Coding aka VVC, successor of H.265) when I came across a GitHub project (I am not sure linking directly to it is safe as some users my try downloading it, mods pls advice). From there I downloaded the first option named "Windows 7 and later x64", it was a 7-zip archive. After unarchiving I did the usual scan with Emsisoft AM (detected as Gen:Variant.Tedy.220456 (B)) and Virus Total (18 detections). File is quarantined for now, I submitted file to Emsisoft AM as FP for now, waiting for their analysis. File extension is ".com".

PS I am not infected cause I never ran the file.
