I didn't, that's why I asked for second opinions !
Although rare, an infection affecting Sourceforge's approved download centers is not totally out of the question, imho.

Why would I ? It is non obnoxious and it is very very infrequently flagging downloads that I do.

Nope, that is an urban legend. /Virus/ is a latin word belonging to gender "neutral" and without a plural (in latin). If its plural existed, it woud NOT resemble viri, nor virii ! Ergo, in English, we should write viruses.

@Both :
Now please, have you downloaded the windows prebuilt executable in question ? If you have, has it matched the size and MD5 which I posted ?
