Joomla 3.8.4 pacakage contains a virus?

Hi,

When trying to upload the joomla 3.8.4 package I received the following error. Has anyone had any similar problems before I go to my provider?

The file you uploaded, Joomla_3.8.4-Stable-Full_Package.zip, contains a virus so the upload was canceled: Zen.BlockedArchive.JS.UNOFFICIAL FOUND


Thanks
Iain

No one has reported anything suspicious and McAfee gives the installation archive a clean bill of health.

Which anti virus product are you using and on which platform?

thanks for the reply Toivo Talikka,

The anti-virus product is internal to the internet provider. (Zen). I didn't think that Joomla 3.8.4 would have a virus. I'll contact internet provider to advise them.

Thanks for your prompt response.

Iain

Contact your host if you have concerns, but the other responses on the thread indicate it's nothing to worry about....

Actually I am with Sozzled on this, bad spelling always makes me uncomfortable, although I usually manage to avoid pointing it out.
