Flags as Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.H!ml
False positive or not, not taking the risk.

If there's a virus in this download why not update with the one from archive.org ?
This one says it's a Deluxe Edition, but there's no deluxe version mentioned anywhere else, even in wikipedia.
Is this really a Deluxe edition?

My virus scanner found the Trojan:Script/Phonzy.A!ml virus in this download. It targets banking information.
