As usual both JTAlert installers have been run through VirusTotal. has the links to the full analysis results. Both files produced the same two false-positives. The GData warning is simply due to JTAlert being created using the AutoIT script compiler and the Trapmine warning is a machine-learning (ml) warning which is similar to the reputation type warnings seen in the past from Norton (low installed user-base). Both are false-positives, neither identifying a know infection.
