Malware in FastCopy Portable?

I downloaded FastCopy Portable for the first time. The Malware-Scanner I'm using (Avira) reports the following on the related paf.exe-file:
Found: TR/Crypt.ZPACK.Gen
Description: The term 'TR' denotes a trojan horse that is able to spy out data, violate your privacy, or perform unwanted modifications to the system.
A generic detection routine designed to detect common family characteristics shared in several variants. This special detection routine was developed in order to detect unknown variants and will be enhanced continuously.

Any ideas?

False Positive

Whenever you detect a virus in one antivirus product, it's best to upload it to a service that scans using multiple engines as detailed here: https://portableapps.com/support#false_positive

As you can see from the scan by 40 engines here, the file is clean: https://www.metadefender.com/#!/results/file/ZTE3MDgwOUJKOHZoZ3hLd1pIMVB...

Your copy of Avira is either using outdated definitions or has one of the 'heuristic'-style options turned on, which generate a ton of false positives. I'd suggest updating and checking the settings.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
