Getting an error while downloading a file

I'm trying to download the file "KNOPPIX_V8.1-2017-09-05-DE.iso" from http://www.knoppix.org/ and I'm always getting an error message (free translation from german)  "We have safely closed the connection to xyz, because it was infected with Win32:Vitro" it doesn't matter which mirror I'm using. Is this really an infected file or something else?

Thanks for your help.

Hello Rotscher,

Thank you for being patient.
We have tried downloading it today and no threat was detected.
I recommend you to check the situation again and if the same threat appears please update your AVG program and let us know the status.

Thank you for being patient, Rotscher.
I would like to inform you that the file is clean and you shouldn't be receiving the threat detection again.
Please update your AVG program and check whether you get the threat popup.
