I downloaded this yesterday and there was a virus attached to the file. Not sure what happened because I downloaded it before without issues. Just letting people know. Just to be clear windows defender wasn't freaking out about the mod. It said a virus named something like Trojan Win32 glupteba|ml was attached. Additionally chrome also claimed it contained a virus.
I'm seeing a lot of conversation of false positives but given that both chrome and Windows Security acted up seems to indicate this time it was genuine.
I also referenced a database of virus names and there are other viruses sharing a similar name.
Believe me. I'd rather have it be a false positive.
Also don't just delete my post about this because it's resolved. I'd be happy to edit it instead declaring it is resolved.
THIS SITUATION IS RESOLVED. IT WAS A FALSE POSITIVE.
Because you guys are worried, I ran the 44.5 windows exe through virustotal. 0/70 engines detected the file.
Thank you. After investigation it does appear to be a false positive.
Seems like a fault of Windows Defender. Apparently, defender even detects some of Microsoft's own code as such.

windows defender doesnt block it for me, but says cracker1000's is a different type of trojan, next time i'm at my dad's (im 11 and my parents divorced) i will see what type it says

Same here. I'm not sure why but it said there was a Trojan attached to it. I'm gonna check again but I hope nothing happens.
