False Positive

As detailed on our Support page, it's best to upload a file you're suspicious of to a service like VirusTotal or MetaDefender as they let you scan a file in multiple antivirus engines. Here's the scan for the file you mentioned:
https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/4d287ce11375b52989661ac5f85e0fef4d3054...

As you can see Comodo, and only Comodo, is currently having an issue. So you'll have to report to Comodo that their current antivirus definitions are broken and wait for them to fix their error. It isn't something we can fix on our end.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Yes, I initially checked this file on the website virustotal. It is possible that you there also found my result. But whether you are sure that this false operation? Suddenly, just others cannot recognize it:)

Not The Way It Works

That's not the way it works. If one or three antiviruses alert on a file and the other 58 say it's clean, it's a false positive.

You can also tell because Comodo now lists it as clean, so they fixed their error.

It seems that this time and the truth there was a false operation as now this Comodo finds nothing there.
And if to speak generally, then it seems to me that there can be such situation when there is a virus and it is defined by one antivirus, and others do not define it as others just for the present do not know it:)
