I hope this is the correct stack to post this. So I'm trying to download FileZilla for my macbook and I have McAfee installed, when I click in the download button, the antivirus flags it as Artemis!70506fb398e5 so I decided to upload the file to virus total and I get this:

enter image description here

of course I'm downloading it from: https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?platform=osx (the free version)

Does anyone have any idea if this is a false flag or something?

Thank you :)

The download is shown by many scanners as Adware. The download page you use has a small notice below the download

This installer may include bundled offers. Check below for more options.

Based on this it is likely that the bundled offer is the cause of the warning. If you follow the hint to check below for more options you get to another download page where a different version is offered. This version does not seem to have the Adware problems.

  • Thank you for the lesson on reading everything on download page and for the help, the other one downloaded find. Thanks! – Arturo Jun 11 '18 at 17:39
