Trojan on WinAvr Gcc detected

I am new to arduino and i am planning on programming arduino by plain C through the eclipse IDE

I downloaded the winavr gcc on the official sourceforge,

Then i scanned it online to virustotal and it has found two threats.

Here is the link

Is this virus harmful?

viruses and trojans are always harmful (but not necessary instantly, they might be sleeping until day X)

it might be a false positive too..
0) check with other virus scanners

  1. download the GCC from another site and try redo the test.
  2. check other versions of the gcc to see if that code triggers the virus alarm tootoo

Looks more like zero…

Probably harmless! There are strong indicators suggesting that this file is safe to use.

JS.A.Pakes.28840282

The "JS" means it malicious JavaScript. The install is not JavaScript. There is no JavaScript contained within the install. Guess what that means about ViRobot?

The other report is from Rising Anti-virus Software. The internet is rife with reports of false-positives from their software. They ceased operations about a year ago. Guess why they ceased operations?
