No, only Zillya as one out of fifty-three scanners used by VirusTotal gives an indication of a malware. Did you consider this could be a false positive? Isn't this is precicely what you use VirusTotal for? To get a varied evaluation of the target to be able to avoid false positives/negatives? They even say it themselves: "Probably harmless! There are strong indicators suggesting that this file is safe to use." I expect their signature database will be updated eventually (it's at 20151215 now) and then you can try again to see what happens.
