Various versions of the Kaspersky antivirus software incorrectly flag the EclipseCrossword download as having the trojan "HEUR:Trojan-downloader.win32.generic". The EclipseCrossword download is safe, however, and not infected with a virus. Kaspersky has verified this and plans to issue an update.
In the meantime, you can work around this issue by download EclipseCrossword manually at the following location:
Alternately, you can temporarily disable your antivirus software while downloading, or ignore the warning.
Tip: If you have Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP, another free antimalware option is Microsoft Security Essentials. Windows 10 and Windows 8 come with Windows Defender built-in, which provides the same level of protection.
