Bundled FileZila Client reported as infected

I have tried to download FileZila Client 3.39 from your site using Quick Download button.
Which redirected me to download of bundled pack here : .. and offered to save file FileZilla_3.39.0_win64-setup_bundled.exe

But when I choose free version and Chrome popped-up 'Save as' dialog my AV (FortiClient kicked in and quarantined temporary file and disrupted download.
Reported virus names are Riskware/Funshion and Riskware/Conduit.

When I used Additional Download Options and from chosen to download non-bundled version named FileZilla_3.39.0_win64-setup.exe , then AV warning is not triggered.
Neither during download attempt nor after it when parts are completed. Even additional scan after download haven't found anything suspicious in non-bundled version.
Therefore pure assumption is that 'bundle' is not clear.

Could anyone from FileZila team can have a look into issue and bundle ?

Thank you,

It's a false-positive, the offer-enabled installer does not contain any malware.
