That´s because the installer is bundled... http://www.pandasecurity.com/mediacenter/malware/careful-filezilla-malware-imitates-perfectly/
The Windows version has it since years now! Did also get it, and now I need to wipe the computer from it.

There is no malware in the official downloads. All malware warnings you might see when downloading from https://filezilla-project.org are false positives from badly written AV products.
