Not detected yet!?

While checking my email yesterday at Hotmail I got an email from a nicole smith. The email was an attachment of what appeared to be a valid jpg file: "nicole256.jpg". When I put my mouse on the image I noticed the link on the status bar was not to the "nicole256.jpg" file but instead to another site "hxxp://". needless to say, it was a spoofed link to an "exe" file. I downloaded the file and scanned it with avp kav 7.0 with the very latest definitions and it found nothing. Nope, not even as suspicious. I have included 3 screenshots: what appeared as a suspicious string of the source code of the hotmail page and 2 screen captures of the scan from virus total, several scanners did register it as malware and a couple as suspicious. Is this a new technique/method of infecting? For a long time now, hotmail had always restricted almost all attachments but this one seemed to get by with no problem.

when i submitted the file at KAV site for a scan and it told me the file was
