Some antivirus shows rooting apps as threat.For me even SRS root was shown by avast as infected. As far as I know vroot is pretty safe.But still take a caution.If you feel that you downloaded the app from a reliable source then go ahead with it.

Yup, its safe for Windows running on a x86-64 processor.

But how about when it is running on a linux variant known as Android and running on a ARM processor? Is it safe then?

Most rooting apps will flag any antivirus. That is why you are advised to shut them off. It is a false positive. Just make sure to do your research on it.
