The title says it all. Can I have malicious app falsely marked as "CLEAN" even if reported to some antivirus company like ESET? I am just wondering.

I think so. But it happened to me once that I sent cracked Android app to Avira and they found nothing. I contacted them about it and they just said it was really clean. Strange...

Why do you believe it is malicious? Have you tried uploading it to virustotal?

Because it was a warez and I read somewhere that warez contain viruses and hidden backdoors so the authors can make money of you. I don't have other reason to belive it is malicious. I tried and it said it's clean
