I tried to download the latest version (12_2_0_ZeroXII.exefrom sourceforge.net, but avast detected malware (Win32:Evo-Gen).

 

I disabled the antivirus, downloaded the file and checked it with virustotal which detected two threats:

Trojan.Shelma.abt (AV Jiangmin)
PE:Malware.Generic(Thunder)!1.A1C4 [F] (AV Rising)

 

Are they false alarms?

In 2015 the previously well respected SourceFourge was accused of various shady practices  including adding malware to compiled downloads. Even though SourceForge has since changed its stance,  I am wondering if this might be the same problem???

Well, if it IS part of a shady practice:

Are there any alternative download sites that might be safer?

Intresting

 

I just downloaded the files you linked and uploaded to Virustotal it returned only the Jiangmin Trojan.Shelma.agv

 

I have many installs of Uniserver installed on this computer run Malwarebytes and ClamWin regularly never any hits.
