Undocumented folder/file in programdata\intel (AGSRunner.bin)

This file (AGSRunner.bin) was detected trying to run on a Windows 10 machine on our network, but the attempt was blocked. The file did not appear to be signed in any way and appeared like it tried to run by itself in the background. Scanning it in VirusTotal provided these results to show it may be malware:

Is there anyone who can vouch for if this is a real Intel file, or driver update package of some kind? It otherwise seems extremely suspicious, and that the file may be a virus that is using the programdata\intel file structure to hide.

Hello Riley_Wilhelm

  

Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities. 

Please share with us the Intel product that you use or the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) results 

  • Download the Intel SSU https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows
  • Open the application and select "Everything" click on "Scan" to see the system and device information. By default, Intel® SSU will take you to the "Summary View".  
  • Click on the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".  
  • To save your scan, click on "Next", then "Save".  


Intel® software and drivers go through an extensive antivirus scanning process, It is probably not a virus, but the antivirus detecting it this way.
