This is a false positive, there is no malware in the SourceForge downloader.

During the installation, the installer may present third-party offers. These offers are clearly labeled as such and can be declined without affecting installation of FileZilla.

In other words, nothing unwanted is being installed without your prior,
explicit consent.
