I ran a VirusTotal check on the latest downloader a few days ago and again today, alerted WireShark on Twitter, but not response or new file.

A user called PayloadSecurity on 2018-08-31 helpfully added this to the VirusTotal comments:

Have you considered a false positive, since all 64 other scanners give it an all clear?

As per the Wireshark Security page Twitter isn't a supported mechanism for reporting security issues, instead you should use one (or both) of the options listed at the bottom of the page.

I would also note that as only 1 of the 65 scanners at VirusTotal detected an issue with that file, the likelihood is that it's a false positive by that scanner.
