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.


I found in all torbrowser version on torproject.org Maleware and not false positives.

Check it with the ClamWin Scanner. The other scanner are infiltrated by secret service, if they this not found!
