Trojan Detected from Official Download

I installed filezilla_3.43.0_win64_sponsored-setup.exe and got a virus hit from Trend Micro on 08/05/2019

I've seen the posts saying that these are false positives here, but that doesn't help when the anti-virus program immediately deletes the file because of the 'virus' and no, before it is asked, I will not disable it just to download an application from the internet, that is just asking for issues.

Is there a planned fix for this, or do I need to start looking for a different FTP program?

Ok, found there is a second page of downloads that do not flag as a virus with the system. But seriously, why bundle things in if they are going to give you such a bad name. We were discussing going to another product over this, as that is unacceptable.
