VirusTotal – File distributed by Microsoft Corporation


When I scan some files on VirusTotal, I get the mention “File distributed by Microsoft Corporation”.

VirusTotal then automatically considers the file to be secure and I wonder why this appears, knowing that my files are not files of software detained by Microsoft (since my files are some open source software).

I was wondering if it was really a guarantee of security, why it appears and if it proves 100% that the software does not contain malware or even no security breach.
