Any comments?

To test the authenticity of the Audacity file that you downloaded, test the “checksum”. See: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/online-safety-when-downloading/#validate

MaxSecure has been flagging Audacity since March 2021.
All of the big names in anti-virus protection still disagree and say that it is clean.
