VirusTotal flagging AdWare in DropboxInstaller.dmg

Helpful | Level 6

Good morning,

following issues with phishing warnings generated in Avast by using Dropbox' local application last week-end (see discussion here in the forum), I unistalled it and try to reinstall it this morning. I did run the DropboxInstaller.dmg file by virusTotal, however, and got this as an answer (the time is UTC+1):

Would you mind explaining what Ikarus is, and why is it flagged in your installer? Thank you in advance.

Sure! You want me to do it? Or do you need my contact info? I don't want to post my e-mail here, obviously, I have done enough dumb things in the past few days...
