Dunno what 1st person shooter is - is it a game? It could be a false positive. If 360 has quarantined the file it's safe where it is, you can restore it if you think it's a FP. Then re-scan your system with MBAM, HitManPro. See if they detect it.

It's not uncommon for 360 to throw up false positives. But it won't delete the file, it'll keep it in quarantine until you decide what to do with it. If you're not sure, and everything is working ok with your machine then just leave it where it is - quarantined.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if it was reporting correctly, so you do need to check it carefully.

Being cross platform, and using low level commands, it is possible that it IS a false positive, but again it needs further checking.
Personally, I would try to check a copy from another source and see if that also shows the Trojan.

This is a heuristic (hence "heur") detection so it is a "looks like" or "maybe" risk as opposed to being a direct "hit". That said, Qihoo use the same tag for other sources that are also flagged by other vendors.

This looks like it could be a wrapped installer component. It depends on where you got the download from as to how likely this is.

Funnily enough, same thing happened for me this afternoon. Downloaded a file, scanned it with 360 which flagged and quarantined it - Trojan.Generic: HEUR/QVM10.1.Malware.Gen

The file is citriosetup.exe - a Web browser. Bit of a search and came up with this;

I'd downloaded the file directly from the Citrio site. So went and downloaded the offline installer from Softpedia, scanned it with 360, HMP and MBAM. Clean. Uploaded it to VirusTotal and got this;

Then another search and this;

Clouds the water a bit, doesn't it? There's no way I was going to install the browser after the initial detection, but tried a different source just out of curiosity, and with this thread in mind.

I attempted to restore the quarantined file, overrode the warning and restored it to the desktop but 360 flagged it again, immediately, so straight back in quarantine it went where it's safe. I'll delete it later.

This is very strange. I download the Windows installer from the official website. I didnt get any alarms during install or while playing. Did you download it from the same place?

I've 360 Total Security Essentials installed with Avira engine enabled. If you have BitDefender engine enabled I suggest you to switch to Avira. Although in this case from your first post, I can see that it's the QVM2 AI engine that caught the malware, which is one of the 5 engines in 360 Total Security, and I've enabled it too but no detection.

Sourceforge is known to bundle adware, however the download I got was direct.
