Hi Ivalogic, I already sent you the following email 12 hours ago, nothing private shared so I will paste you once again its content:
It sounds that this might be a false positive from your AV. Let’s see if this is the case.
So you tried to download this file?
I recommend you first check the file signatures. Click on our page to see the “file signature.”
You should see this:
Now compare it with the one displayed on Audacity download page here:
As you can see it is the same:
Try to disable your antivirus product and try to download again temporarily:
Do not execute the file - do not click on it.
Open VirusTotal and upload the file audacity-win-2.3.3.exe
Once you scan the file downloaded from us you should see no signs of a virus and also the signature will be the same:
Now you’re 100% that our file is clean, and this is a false positive from your antivirus.
As a conclusion, if the signatures are the same, please temporarily disable your antivirus and try to download and install Audacity 2.3.3
After this you can enable back your antivirus product. If it will detect Audacity as a virus you can safely flag it as a safe program.
