Standard disclaimer: We continuously check our files and at this time we are not showing any problems with our files on the server. Otherwise we would have removed them.
We can however not control what happens to a file once it is on your computer or if it is modified on any servers or gateways it passes through while downloading. So you should ALWAYS check with your Antivirus software provider when in doubt.

VirusTotal is not a substitute for an antivirus/malware scanner on your computer. Almost any file of sufficient size will trigger a few scanners on that site. The fact that it shows three different infections from three different scanners (out of 60 some) is usually a good indication for a false positive. You should however check with whatever scanner you run on your machine to be safe.
