Virus (malicious) found in installation file (5.14.4 RC)

Hi!
I use the WinSCP for a long time, recently updated version (5.14.4 RC - Build 9136).
Today I decided to check the installation file on virustotal.com, and received a message that the file contains a virus.
CrowdStrike Falcon (ML) win/malicious_confidence_100% (D)

What is it?

Thanks!

Well, that's most likely a false positive. After all, it's just one antivirus out of 68. And a one, I've never heard of. In most cases, this goes away with the next virus definition update.

You can see this: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/860590c784721d57efb7b14ad3c2614d1ec4b8741e9fc98df9763c3e8935b64b/detection

How solve?
It's one minor antivirus out of 68! What do you want to solve about it? It's problem of the antivirus, not WinSCP.
