Kaspersky didn't find anything, and Avast is renowned for false positives.

If really worried, try it on Jotti Scanner.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Yeah Avast can be a bit over sensitive on times.
Don't fancy uploading a 130 mb file to jotti as the kids are currently playing online and don't think I can stand the calls of "Lag....."

Avast will actually cause C2 games with NWjs to crash or fail to start.

It false flag it and attempts to run the code in a sandbox environment.

Avast did pop up first time I ran NWjs. Now it behaves itself.
