As I agree that .exe's from unknown people are less likely to get looked at, I will say that...

This .exe is harmless... And he even put a HotKeySet ("{ESC}", "quit") to exit.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Virusscan's often only recognize the AutoIt header. Not the actual script, so for a virusscanner: AutoIt in general is a virus, or no scripts are a virus. A viri scan wont do any good.

I also thought that if the virus was just written, the virus detector would not be able to find it - no characters to look for in the code.

But as for posting EXE files - if your going to post in the v3 Scripts and Scraps forum - it should be the code not the program (EXE file)- I cannot learn from a program, but I can(sometimes) by looking at the code.

All by me:

True, but not for viri written in AutoIt. AutoIt is a interpretor, it includes the source code you write in the exe, and then uses the engine to read your code line by line and execute it. The virus scan only recognizes the engine, included in any AutoIt exe.

Don't think so...

Most virus scanners will look for a unique "signature" which can be anything in the file.

Sometimes they get it wrong and believe they can identify the virus by looking at the runtime module portion. This will create the False positives, but it is possible to detect an Virus type script without detecting all scripts as virus.
