Was doing some system maintenance on my Windows PC this morning and AVG raised an alert:

AVG detects Trojan SHeur4.HKI in xmaxima 5.24.0.

The file was in C:\Program Files\Maxima-5.24.0\bin\xmaxima.exe.

There is no entry yet for this trojan in the AVG database.

Since xmaxima is used for advanced physics I am wondering if this is a centrifuge attack.
