Maybe it is false alert and file is clean.

Yeah, that's a false alert. It's not actually finding anything bad in it, it's just saying that they don't know enough about it to make a proper decision, so they're erring on the side of caution.

FileRepMalware means "File doesn't have enough reputation".

Windows is not my choice, but customers developing software for.

When it is up to me running CentOS or working on Tiny Core Linux embedded releasse (Raspberry Pi, Beagle Bone Black or Odroid), see,57.0.html
