Default Odin site download full of viruses??

What the.......? Downloaded and installed Odin from here and huge amount of viruses started installing as the "supposed" ODIN installed. Ran malwarebytes and it went crazy. This ODIN download is full of malware/viruses. Malwarebytes found over 60! Don't go to odindownload.com

Went here first but no download link and the thread is closed.

Does anyone have a valid download link?

Strange page which is not a official side for odin. Its copy&paste (texts can be found 1:1 here in xda), which didn't recognize the xda users who are involved and it is completly unclear who this page made. So, many criterias not to download anything from this page or using it.

Best will be when you also remove the link from the url here.
