FileZilla 3.46 affected by Trojan.GenericKD.42067748 [Solved]

I'm trying to update FileZilla 3.45.01 to 3.46.0 but my antivirus Bitdefender is blocking it because of Trojan.GenericKD.42067748.
I tried two methods, but both automatic update from the PortableApps platform and downloding a new paf.exe file are blocked due to the same antivirus alert.

I hope you could verify and fix the issue.

Thank you

False positive

Bitdefender was the WORST for me when it was about false positive... You need to disabled Bitdefender for the time of the download and install and then enable it.

And as you can see in VirusTotal detection it is saying Trojan Generic, so it is not as bad as we can think.

PS: PortableApps can't really do a thing about it because it is FileZilla itself and how it was coded that is doing this. If you search on a search engine you will see in the forum of the app with the dev saying it is false positive and etc.

Portabilizing application... 14 at the moment

Thank you Makazzz, I didn't

Thank you Makazzz, I didn't have time to check your solution, I try for one more time with the automatic update and it went smoothly.
Don't know if someone fixed the paf.exe file or bitdefender felt asleep Biggrin but now my FileZilla is updated.

Nothing on our end

There is nothing we can fix when there is a false positive. If it works now it means users like you reported the false positive to Bitdefender.

If something like this happens again in future and you have verified it is a false positive, the best thing to do is report to them to help yourself and other users be able to install it successfully.
