I am trying to install the current stable version of golang (version 1.6.2). However, Kaspersky says it contains the Trojan Ebowla.

Is this a false positive or is there really a problem with the golang?

  • I would take this up with the golang team by filing a bug at github.com/golang/go/issues. Validate the signature (SHA256) of the download to ensure that you downloaded the correct MSI package. – Signus Jul 7 '16 at 1:02

    It is the correct msi file and is signed by Google. I filed an issue with the golang team. – Kaveh Jul 8 '16 at 0:20
