maybe its wrong here, if so, i´m sorry. I tried to install the very first time tor browser for windows german version: torbrowser-install-7.0.4_de from your website https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en

When I checked this file by uploading to www.virustotal.com I got 2 malware warnings:

malware (ai score=18)

Malware.Heuristic!ET#99% (rdm+)


Thank You

These are false positives. VirusTotal detects "Hello World" programs as malicious and often detects real malware as clean.

Anti-virus is not a good option if you have real anonymity or privacy requirements.
