|Subject:||GNU Octave website hacked and links replaced with trojan-containing installer??|

I’m not sure if I’m imagining things here but I am very suspicious:
Just installed Octave on Windows 10 from https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/download.html
I noticed that Symantec detected the security risk “Trojan.Gen.MBT” in a libsqlite library:
Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan
Event: Risk Found!
Security risk detected: Trojan.Gen.MBT
Action taken: Pending Side Effects Analysis : Access denied Date found: Monday, 2 March 2020 1:32:50 PM
I looked at the installers locations, and they use ftpmirror.gnu.org instead of ftp.gnu.org
I looked at the website ftpmirror.gnu.org and it redirects to https://mirror.freedif.org/GNU/
The website freedif.org looks very dodgy to me.
Looks like all URLs in the windows download page have been replace with this.
I am imagining things? What is going on here?
