Thanks for your investigations ans reports.

I confirmed a positive alert using VirusTotal on my linux PC (ubuntu 14.04) 
*before* treating on MS-Windows.
I am stopping distribution of binaries at the moment.

The infection is limited to the zip2exe.exe so I will omit share/nsis folder, 
which is not related to octave execution, from the 7z archive.

For installer I have to manage packaging script I will take for a while.
