VLC Media Player is great. With the recent news of the exploits (dll sideloading) is VLC Media Player still 'safe' to use? I download it from VideoLAN's website and don't have the plugins enabled in my web browsers or automatic updates. As a general statement should it be considered secure if it's 0/67 in VirusTotal and the sha265 hash matches? And is this (Hybrid Analysis) overkill?

Thank you!
