Dear Support,

This post contains a request to further investigate our Social Media Bot application for any harmful software.

The reason for this request is because your Antivirus company has joined Virus Total and your Antivirus detects our application as harmful.

Explanation of the code in the .exe file:
We are using the .exe as an updater and runner of our Java code, which is delivered together with the .exe. As Java code is quite difficult to obfuscate and protect from reverse engineering, we added some protection layers on top of it. (We can't provide more info here.)
