Explain filezilla virus mac.

 I'm trying to download FileZilla for my MacBook and I have McAfee installed. When I click on the download button, the antivirus flags it as Artemis!70506fb398e5. Is this a false flag or something?

The filezilla virus Mac download is shown by many scanners as Adware. The download page you use has a small notice below the download

This installer may include bundled offers. Check below for more options.

Based on this it is likely that the bundled offer is the cause of the warning. If you follow the hint to check below for more options you get to another download page where a different version is offered. This version does not seem to have the Adware problems.
