When I submit my bitcoin-qt.exe hash to virustotal, according to Rising I have a coin stealer trojan

https://www.virustotal.com/de/file/e676a1177a02a88a2ae504fd8649e8407c4b688aa4c340dc64d52942c251b8dd/analysis/1483648927/

has anyone of you scanned his file too and got a clean one (so I am infected) or does every Bitcoin qt appear as this ?

That result is a false positive. Antivirus software will frequently flag bitcoin-qt and bitcoind as viruses. If you have verified that the binaries that you downloaded are legitimate, then there is no problem here.

Antivirus software flag bitcoin-qt and bitcoind as coin stealers and mining viruses because they look for a wallet.dat file (since that is the file it uses for the wallet) and they have mining code (for mining testnet and regtest).

Thank you very much  Smiley
