From http://opencv.org/downloads.html I downloaded the OpenCV for Windows file (version 3.2) -> https://sourceforge.net/projects/opencvlibrary/files/opencv-win/3.2.0/opencv-3.2.0-vc14.exe/download (https://sourceforge.net/projects/open...) (file: open-cv-3.2.0-vc14.exe). I ran Avast Antivirus on the downloaded file and received a virus report: JS: Downloader-DZB [Trj] Specifically found in: open-cv-3.2.0-vc14.exe>opencv\sources\modules\ts\src\ ts_gtest.cpp

It should be just a false positive. See the VirusTotal report (2/53 softwares report the file as a Trojan at the time of writing).
