Malware.Packer found with CFXNeo.DLL

I ran Malware Anti-Malwarebytes (updated this morning), maybe the first time I did so, on my Web server, a Windows VPS. It found two items of type "Malware.Packer", in Memory Module and File, associated with a ColdFusion 8 file "CFXNeo.dll". The date on the file is Jan 7, 2004.

So far I have not found a report of a false positive out there, yet I also wonder whether there are any ColdFusion viruses/trojans. I am attaching a screen capture.

I have not cleaned the "problem" yet. By the way, Adobe has an update for the CFXNeo.dll file to make it double-byte compliant. I probably don't need that since their hot fix applies primarily to C++ custom tags that can be written for ColdFusion and which need special handling for Unicode usage, which I am not doing, but perhaps I should download the new DLL anyway to ensure no virus, and then re-scan?

I also run ColdFusion 8 on my own office server, and the file size and day-of-year are exactly the same, but the time stamp on my computer is one hour earlier; I don't know whether time stamps, dates, and sizes reliably mean anything at all when it comes to virus infections.

Will run a full Malware scan on my office server and see if the same problem shows up.

How to know if this is a false positive or not...
