It's a false-positive. My modpack is safe.

 

Check on http://virustotal.com if you don't trust it.

that's alright. Just a note - previous versions were not detected with anything, only the latest one.

It totaly doesn't matter if previous version was ok to antivir software. Looks like MS Defender received some bugged update and started to mark my software as trojan for no reason. The binary image of my modpack is changing with every modpack update, so each new version of modpack is like totaly new .exe for such antivir.

It's not the modpack as a whole, there is a specific file in the pack that is a threat. Not saying I don't trust you Aslain cause I do without a doubt, but Antivirus aren't out to get you and there could be a threat. Always better to be safe than sorry.

There isn't any threat. See the chatbox for the post Aslain just made.. he might post it in here too.

Your screenshot also shows the modpack as a whole, not a specific file at all.

I ran the commands listed in your post (above) but I am still getting the virus detection as soon as the file download completes.  Am I missing a step?

 

Thanks!

Update: I ran another virus definition update from the Windows Defender GUI and it corrected the problem.  I was able to successfully download and install the current ModPack...

I don't know why it didn't work that way, this is what MS gave me so hard to tell, maybe this method requires a system restart but since GUI part update worked for you...

I ran update search and it didn't find an update.  I still cannot get download to complete.  How did you get it to work?

Trying to Download the mod again and neither Chrome nor Firefox will let me saying Virus Detected, Download failed. I've tried 20 times to get around it and can't.

I have downloaded both WoT and WoWS modpacks using Chrome and Avira AntiVirus Pro without any problems.  No virus warnings etc.  Both are clean.  I suggest that you have some sort of local issue with a false positive being generated.

Update your antivir, then restart PC afterwards too just in case. Get new modpack too, sometimes new .exe helps with false-positives.

I tried yesterday and now today to get the latest update, It keeps telling me virus detected and it cancels the download. I have never had this issue before until yesterday.

Maybe install some real antivirus, it should disable that one IIRC. Moved your post to proper topic since posted in wrong one.

Not strange, it's different .exe on wgmods (without couple of adult mods), the binary image is different between the version. So it's normal I would say. There is even a chance that the warning from an AV will be gone with a new modpack update, because every modpack update is creating a new binary image with totaly different checksum.
