Download blocked because of suspected infection

The virus scanner of my university prevents me downloading WinSCP from some of the Sourceforge mirrors. It claims it's infected by a Trojan. See message below:

"ClamAV: Heuristic.Trojan.SusPacked.TMS"

Maybe this is a false-positive or maybe there's a problem with some of the mirrors. I stopped after trying two times. One of them was downloading from

http://freefr(dot)dl(dot)sourceforge(dot)net/project/winscp/WinSCP/4.3%20beta/winscp430setup.exe

(made the url unclickable just in case that this threat is real)
I can't remember the other.

Re: Download blocked because of suspected infection

Thanks for your post. This looks like quite generic message. Also googling for the message I've found too many false positive reports referring to this message.
