Why does download have a virus?

I checked the download for the game with VirusTotal and it has a trojan. Why does it have one?

1 of 76 antiviruses say that, and 66 left say "this is clean". It may just a mistake of this one.

As long as you downloaded it from one of the trusted sources on wz2100.net, and the SHA256 matches (which it seems to), this is a false-positive from that one scanner.
