Make sure to download Virtualbox only from https://www.virtualbox.org/ (Ok, Berkeley BOINC redistributes it also and that is likely safe too...), Oracle publishes the checksums on the same site so you can verify if you downloaded the real deal. Otherwise don't panic since antivirus programs can sometimes dole out false positives.
