Possible False Positive on NoSleep.exe?

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I downloaded this NoSleep utility from, of all (ironic) places, the Symantec website here:

Malwarebytes is detecting Trojan.Agent.AI, but other scanners, including Symantec and McAfee show nothing.  There is much discussion at the above web page, and elsewhere, saying that Malwarebytes is throwing a false positive because the program was written in AutoIt, which often triggers detections in Malwarebytes.  I've run a scan at VirusTotal for you here:

Is there any way you guys can either confirm that it contains a real trojan, or alternatively, confirm that it is false positive and update your scanner to ignore this file?

 

Thanks for any help that you can provide.  I've also attached the file below.

Are you sure it's a false positive though, and not a real trojan?  I have no way of knowing this myself.  I'm hoping you could confirm either way.
