What "executable" file of Octave have you checked exactly? And how many scanners (from around 70 possible scanners at virustotal) reported problems with this file?

It seems to not be one of the exe installer files from the official download site (https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/octave/windows/). Because those files are above 170MB each (for the current Windows releases of Octave 4.2.1). And virustotal only accepts files up to 32MB for http link checking, and up to 128MB for checking of uploaded files.

I ran the executable through virustotal and found a virus: Win32.Trojan.WisdomEyes.16070401.9500. I did not install.
