Virus detected

I tried to install version 5.9 Rc1 on my pc and BitDefender blocked it because it said it had a couple of viruses.

The file C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\System\alac.w5s is infected with Gen:Variant.Lazy.152933 and was moved to quarantine. It is recommended that you run a System Scan to make sure your system is clean.

The file C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins\in_avi.dll is infected with Gen:Variant.Lazy.151343 and was moved to quarantine. It is recommended that you run a System Scan to make sure your system is clean.

I just installed the latest Winamp version onto a PC with McAfee, and fortunately the antivirus wasn't triggered.

Winamp\system\alac.w5s is our ALAC (Apple Lossless) decoder for playing MP4/M4A files with ALAC audio content.

Winamp\Plugins\in_avi.dll is our AVI demuxer oplugin for playing AVI video files.

I'm 99.9˙% certain there's no viruses in either of them.
