Can a VBS File that I made myself be a threat?

I tried a vbs script “virus” since I was bored, and I was rather paranoid.

It’s the “ghost notepad” thing.

This is the exact code:

WScript.Sleep 180000 WScript.Sleep 10000 Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”) WshShell.Run “notepad” WScript.Sleep 100 WshShell.AppActivate “Notepad” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “Hel” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “lo ” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “, ho” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “w a” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “re ” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “you” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “? ” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “I a” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “m g” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “ood” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys ” th” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “ank” WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys “s! ”

I opened it as a VBS and nothing happened, no notepad no nothing. I terminated the process that was responsible for the script.

I put it through virustotal as a TXT script and 1 engine detected it as a trojan script runner.
