I've never once had a virus/malware issue caused or linked by ATI Tool when downloaded from here. And I've tried many of the beta versions and official versions, no issues. I wouldn't be worried if downloading from here, as W1Z not only created ATI Tool, but is the creator of Techpowerup! and he does an excellent job keeping this place clean!

atitool from reputable sources wont have a worm.
Blind trust is a bad thing. Of course it won't be on purpose but things can always go wrong.

I scanned with an up to date F-Secure and it says it's clean, and seeing how all those scanners pass it I would say it's a false positive. Such things happen. Scan the file again on the site when definitions are updated. See if it still gives a positive, if so it might be an idea to send them an e-mail.
