Any web site can be compromised and contain viruses. For that matter, the site itself need not be compromised, but if the programs offered for d/l have been tampered with (Modified to contain a virus), you may be getting more then you want.

Since this is a joke program from what I'm seeing on Google, most AV's do list it as an annoyance & will generally delete it/flag it.

A couple years ago, my AV flagged a joke program when I was transferring some old files from a CDR, it listed it as a "nuisance".
