Usually the files are not marked by the other 50 something databases or by the more well known ones.
Today I uploaded a zip file that reported 5/56 on one of the files (seen below). This brought up the question I posted in the title.
AegisLab Troj.Dropper.Msil!c 20170203
Antiy-AVL Trojan[Exploit]/SWF.SWF.Generic 20170203
Avira (no cloud) TR/Dropper.MSIL.egkwn 20170203
Bkav [Microsoft Visual C++ 8] 20170203
In my case i probably just delete the folder since its only a game mod.
Should we err on the side of caution and not download anything that isn't a necessity, since even opening a browser to your homepage can be risk?
