    That seems incredibly unlikely, but certainly warrants investigating. Does Comodo also report infection for other/previous releases of BRL-CAD too?

    It does seem unlikely, doesn't it? But there it is, false positive or not...
    I've never downloaded BRL-CAD before, so I cannot answer your question.

    7.14.8 is OK
    7.18.0 is NOT OK. (See 2nd attached image, to follow.)

    I'd like to add that AVG anti-virus reports that the current latest version 7.22.0 is infected with "IDP.Generic.3CEAE297".
    AVG doesn't report any infection in version 7.20.2 or 7.20.0.
