This is a scan of the same app from my PC on virus total. Out of 59 AV's it had zero detections. Try uploading a copy for yourself & see if it's any different with yours .

After a submission of the file to the Anti Virus company, they have confirmed that the file is safe.
Obviously registered as a false positive.
