Consider using Electrum Litecoin instead, and use a Trezor to hold your private keys and sign transactions. I never use a full node anymore if there is a hardware wallet solution.

It looks like the site has been compromised and is now serving an infected version of Litecoin windows client.

this is really bad. and i think it is getting to hard to be save. because i don't know how to handle the sources on gitbub. and gitbub could be compromised too.

Did you / anyone inform the dev team about this?

Could be that they are unaware of this (very likely, as the download is available and not yet offline..).

The 64 bit Win version reported 13 infected out of 54 files. Just tweeted to Charlie Lee:

OP. please change the subject of the thread to something like "Is litecoin core 0.10.4.0 infected with a virus?". I believe it will engage more people, until we figure this out.

There have been no notable changes on github in the last months, so it is rather unlikely (I am not saying impossible!). But I agree, it's bad nonetheless.
EDIT:
Did anybody check the GPG sigs? For me they give a valid signature from an unknown key ID: 7809386C.
After learning the gpg 1-2-3 for dummies, I could verify the signature as:
gpg: Good signature from "Adrian Gallagher <thrasher@addictionsoftware.com>"

I will uphold the right to arm bears.

You said "it looks" and indeed it looks like a false positives, but why are you attacking people like that? Charlie Lee has been notified and we'll see if this is normal or not. You do realize that some people (no matter what kind of noobs they are) can refrain of using the wallet because of this? Cheer up a bit...

Yes if any of you take a couple of minutes to read the 2016 roadmap it mentions plans to eliminate false positives from virus packages. I can remember the same thing happening with bitcoin and at least one alt coin i've downloaded over the years.

Always good to be cautious and check signature.

People attacking others for just asking a technical question are the worst type of forum poster. Knowledge is acquired one step at a time and none of us finish the walk.
