I am facing the same problem.
The following file is affected:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/firebird/files/firebird-win64/2.5.5-Release/Firebird-2.5.5.26952_0_x64.exe/download

This seems to be a false alarm though.
According to Virustotal, 54 different scan engines say the file is
clean:

Funnily, the Microsoft scan engine at Virustotal also considers it as
clean.


Cheers,
