Here's a scan of the latest Universe Sandbox.exe file with a service called Virus Total:

http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/report.html?id=92751ef4776cb6cfb1921f59d33ad9ca999ef35d48440d53dac04f2eb338fd32-1285176116

And another service called Jotti:
http://virusscan.jotti.org/en/scanresult/60335773b7bfad5745040fa8935e868d5865c63e

Both only report results for AntiVir showing TR/ATRAPS.Gen2.

I think this is a false positive. Here's a thread on Steam about this happening to Team Fortress 2:

Can you just add the file to your list of exceptions?

Or get a different virus checker?

I just submitted the exe to them:

So that they can update their database to prevent this from happening in the future.

Thanks for letting me know about this.

I just got an email from them reporting that Universe Sandbox.exe is a false positive and that this will be corrected in a future update.
