I just downloaded 0.17.1 and checked the SHA, it matches as you can see but it's not all green.
I believe they are all false positives, but this is an issue as I see developers turned down for this!! Slowing adoption. Isn't there any other solution other than notifying all those antivirus companies?
Will there always be reds with this binary?

Signature is correct.

Yes this a false positive from your virus software. This happens semi-regularly on Windows, i.e #12320, #11852, #12777, #4069.
