Glossary Converter flagged as malicious on VirusTotal, is it safe to run it?

Hi,

I've wanted to install Glossary Converter but has been flagged as malicious on VirusTotal, twice a couple of months apart.

I don't want potentially harmful files in my computer. Is Glossary Converter safe to install?

Thanks

  • It is constantly scanned on my development machine, and I'm sure RWS scan the app store, too.

    Since VirusTotal aggregates the results of multiple scanners, it has an increased risk of false positives. They sometimes happen, and with only one out of 60+ scanners on VirusTotal giving a warning, that's the most likely scenario. In the end it's a question of trust: do you believe the 60 negative results or the one positive?
