Avira - Free Version
But it's Chrome that is blocking it I believe.

I use Chrome and it is not triggering any warning.

Avira has some options for "live web protection" or something similar... try disabling it. It's a false-positive for sure. Maybe because of "eval" function.

I tried replicating the issue with Chrome as well and it didn't cause any issues. Might be that i'm not a windows user.

I tested using Firefox and Chrome browsers, and have Malwarebytes AV and no trigger of any virus/malware.
Download successful.

The staff meticulously assess all plugins for malware before we allow them to go live as a download. Whilst we still encourage users to exercise caution just in case one slipped through, I strongly suspect that this is indeed a false positive. I cannot replicate the issue myself however will try later on my works laptop that has avira.

For your peace of mind, I have passed the link into our development team for assessment. Though I suspect they'll just confirm the above.

I've skimmed through the code and don't see anything immediately suspicious so I also think it's most likely a false positive.
