In terms of whether or not is this a malware, no, it is a normal application and is safe to use.

However, editing data via hex editor can permanently corrupt the edited files if you don't know what are you doing. Having a backup of such files is a good idea.

Oh i guess i need a backup then, just in case i messed up lol. im trying to editing some game graphics.

Also this application doesnt contain any other application right? I mean i just need the edit tools, i dont need any other whatever programs, be it safe or not.
