I asked the question because I was puzzled. I found a virus alarm
message that I found difficult to believe. This was the first time that
this happened with PSPP. So I asked my questions.

I would like John to understand that and not think that I wanted by
intent insult the voluntary developers of my stats program ! The
questions was not if you deliberately infected the installer - what an
idea - but if somewhere some man-in-the-middle might have found an
entry, for instance.

Unlikely, but it is always possible. If sourceforge is hacked or can't be trusted they can hamper with the checksums too.

I guess it is save, but not 100% sure. 
To be sure, I sent the question to Panda support but did not yet get an
answer. Panda does not give precise reasons why a program has been
neutralised. The intention of my question was to get an answer from the
list to demand Panda to review its code. So your answer is: no, there is
no info on any tentative to infect the prog or the site, if I understand
you well.

The question was not so much on the pspp source but on the MSWindows package build I guess. And no there is no reason to believe the version was infected are tampered in any way.

Have fun
