The BitDefender virus scanner will warn that this website contains viruses and will not allow me to download DIV3 for Windows.

That's very strange.

Div 3 is built cross compiled, in a container that has never seen the outside world, so unless the distro for mingw or sdl have been compromised this is extremely unlikely

It could be because it uses syscalls for things like mkdir/rmdir and that the exe is unsigned, causing it to be flagged.

Would be interesting to see what malware/viruses it thinks it contains though.

BitDefender doesn't really tell what the threat is. It just blocks any method of downloading the file (even PowerShell).

Eventually I ended up downloading it with my tablet and mailing it to myself, then I could download it from the webmail. I scanned it with BitDefender, but then it didn't find anything.

That's really annoying. I wonder who I can contact to find out what the supposed threat is.

Thanks for letting me know though, enjoy the new builds!
