Dear Sir or Madam:

I used https://www.virustotal.com to scan the URL: https://wordpress.org/.
From the result, I found that a malware scanner - MalwarePatrol showed that
this URL is malicious.

I don't know if your website has been hacked or the result is false positive. 
Could you please check out this problem?

Thank you very much!

Thank you for this ticket, and welcome to WordPress Core Trac.

Please note that issues with WordPress.org websites should be opened in Meta Trac:

Also, security issues should be raised to the security team using HackerOne program: https://hackerone.com/wordpress

Let's close this ticket as invalid as it doesn't looks to be related to WordPress Core.

Thank you,

Just noting that the scanner finds no issues at the moment.

At the time of ticket creation, there was only 1 report out of 72, which does seem like a false positive.
