Virustotal finds 16 security vendors flagged this file as malicious
No. Software is developed in Microsoft Visual Studio, C# language. After building the executable, some code is obfuscated, it's absolutely false detection probably for obfuscation.
I have Kaspersky Antivirus 2021 and Internet Security 2021 licensed and never ever detected such things.
Look at the detection issue, some antiviruses detect Trojan, some Malware, some Riskware, Zemsil, etc. That's absolutely wrong, they are just too poor in analyzing an obfuscated program.
I'm using the sofware already 2 years and it's absolutely safe. I was using Avast and it was detecting it as virus everytime i restart the pc and was deleting the .exe even if i put it in the exceptions list. Solution change the antivirus. Now i use Eset and there are no more false detections.
