antivirus: computer infected with malware or false positive?

(Windows 8.1 user)
A few months ago I downloaded binaries from:
https://github.com/noahp/srlua-mingw

They had 2 exe files in the folder: srlua.exe and glue.exe.
I couldn't compile srlua from the original github post for srlua, so I used the binary srlua.exe and the glue.exe that I compiled on my own. I was able to use the tools successfully. The only problem was that I received some positive (1-2) when scanning the various files through virustotal, but that was to be expected since they are programs that compile the lua code in .exe (that is, the c compilers are marked a lot in virustotal).

Advance until today, I needed to use the program again. But because srlua.exe is deleted (pasted) to the created .exe, I needed another copy. I found the old zip for the binary in my recycle bin, so I restored. Then I proceeded to try to make the code work again, but I couldn't make it work. Then I proceeded to use "only" the files in the zip srlua.exe and glue.exe of the binary (those that are in the link above), and I could create the .exe but not make them run. When opening the created .exe, it said they were unrecognized file types. So again: 2 months ago, I didn't use both zip files, but this time I did.

Then I received a notification from my antivirus that "malware detected on the PC". It was specifically linked to srlua.exe. I removed the srlua.exe, and then followed the protocols of & # 39; disinfection & # 39; Kasperky introduced me. I had never seen this message before and could not tell if I had detected anything real or if I only presented security options. The only concern that he presented to me was that he detected an unknown program / code that was running at the start of the PC.

I followed all his suggestions and restarted the computer as they told me. Then I scanned the .zip file that the binaries had, in total viruses. The version of the database showed that it was fine, although I scanned again and it was 50% positive. Then I downloaded malewarebytes and ran that, and picked up a registration key in an old divx player folder, I guess it's not related, and picked up the zip folder of my downloads and those of my trash. I quarantined the zip file in my download folder, I will delete it later if necessary and delete the others.

Then I went to the Github page. I am very bad at understanding github, but it says the last confirmation was 4 years ago … and as I said, I originally downloaded this zip 2 months ago. Then I went to take the zip file again, but it was blocked by Kasperky citing: Access denied
Object URL:
https://codeload.github.com/noahp/srlua-mingw/zip/master
Reason: the object is infected by P2P-Worm.Win32.Palevo.ikpc

This was not there when I downloaded it 2 months ago. All this is new. I sent a message to Github and I am waiting for an answer, however, I am not sure how Github works and if I am sending messages to the right place (they only had an abuse and harassment section). This raises questions such as: Was the file infected while on the Github servers? Why is it still there on the site if everything is marked by all antivirus programs like malware … etc.?

However, my main concern is: Was I probably infected? And how can I know if I am still infected? How could I know? The antivirus, when I look at the reports of kapersky and malewarebytes, tell me nothing more than that srlua.exe and the .zip they come from are positive. Wouldn't there be more to report if it was actually malware?

The last backup I have is months ago, and the backup was made after my use of the program at that time. So, the backup is technically from a PC that used the srlua.exe supposedly infected with the uninfected glue.exe that I compiled myself. It is not desirable to make a backup to that point. And there is the potential that it may become infected. I guess it is unlikely that a perpetrator designed it, so you should use srlua.exe and glue.exe from the zip to infect the PC.

I have not experienced any strange behavior on my PC. But I have no idea what a PC with malware does or does not do, or what else can be verified outside the scans.

The process to use srlua.exe and glue.exe, from the link, is in cmd prompt (windows user) to:

glue srlua.exe prong.lua prong.exe  

where prong is the name of the code file. I guess that executing this command is the same as opening the .exe and that anything could happen if it is really infected.

False positives in the email scraper plugin?

Now I am playing with the email scraper for the first time. I noticed that with some companies I get infinite false positives. Is there any way to avoid this?

Note that I used an incorrect email address in all the examples in my photo.

javascript – Form submission – false positive

I have a custom NewForm (not infopath) in O365 SharePoint that cannot be sent to the back-end list. I have a redirect to a thank you page and some custom validation using the PreSaveAction JavaScript method. It appears that the form is being saved and users are redirected after clicking the Submit button, but no rows are created in the list or automatic email is sent.

Does anyone else have experience like this? The amount of data sent to the list is almost trivial, although there are custom JS and HTML in the design. The flaw seems to be inconsistent since tests with the same information will fail or succeed at random.
