Possible malware in Sourceforge download Win


On the date of 15/1/23 (15th January 2023) I downloaded the Code::Blocks installation link given in the Binary releases page ( at the Microsoft Windows ---> mingw no setup installation. A few weeks later a scan reported a virus (called "Worm LNK file") infecting my system in certain areas(Internet Explorer among others). I safely quarantined and deleted the file but the date of the addition of the virus was reported to be the date I downloaded from the above link. Would any administrator look into this just to be on the safe side? Thank you!

For some reason the https does not work on this sites, at least from my point of view...

Also the download advert at the bottom is not really nice...
