Trojan found em scan virus total

Hello, whenever I use any application, downloaded from the Internet, I use the site verustotal to examine, and with the latest version of WordPress I found a Trojan. Was this a site failure or does it really exist?

Thank you very much.

Hi there, and welcome to WordPress trac!

WordPress is perfectly safe, so long as you download it from

The report you linked us to shows a single false-positive from an off-brand virus provider, generally when using aggregated data, like the VirusTotal service, you will want more than a one-off report before it's considered a potential issue.

Such false positives happened before, see #35318.
