    I just downloaded JAGS 3.3.0 (I tried downloading an older version as well) and as soon as I try to run the installer I get a virus warning from AVG antivirus. It claims it has detected the virus "IDP.Virus.E2B43537". I think many people will not install the software, given the fact that sourceforge uses plain http by default (for some reason it only uses https if you login) and they can't be certain that a man-in-the-middle attack is not happening. Maybe AVG should be contacted about this.

    Sorry, just saw that the problem has been reported to AVG already. Also, I found that 3.2.0 does not trigger the warning, only 3.3.0 and 3.1.0.
