i went to download the client but was stopped by mcafee that it was an "Artemis!08F70896AF23" trojan virus.
was the DL link hacked/compromised?
mcafee is garbage. upload the installer to virustotal and check that it's not just a false positive.
also, stop using mcafee, even if you get the full version for free or if you paid for it.
McAfee is utter garbage, get rid of that shit.
Upload the file to https://www.virustotal.com/ to check if you don't trust it.
