MBR Filter, is this trustworthy?

MBR Filter, is this trustworthy?

I found this article called: "Free tool protects PCs from master boot record attacks".
And, no, this is not about a Membrane Filter to treat sewage water ;) LOL

It does seem trustworthy, but given how serious this is, I rather not take any chances.
Aside of being available from GitHub, one can find it at Softpedia too.

Thanks in advance for your feedback/confirmation :)

Yes it is legit, here is a site testing it against infections. Bleeping Computer

Thanks for mentioning this tool. Another to look into.
