What version of Go are you using (go version)?


Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?


What did you do?

I've downloaded official last release of go for linux from

And uploaded it to VirusTotal

What did you expect to see?

Message "No engines detected this file".

What did you see instead?

Is see message "One engine detected this file":
BitDefenderTheta (antivirus): Gen:NN.Mirai.34122.


It can be mistake, but I think better to double check it.

Happens so often we have a FAQ about this:

If the checksum is fine the binary you downloaded is fine.

I suggest reporting the issue to the antivirus vendor so they can fix their product. Closing here.
