The forum thread states that the file was reported as malware, and the download site is amazingly dodgy (including running what seems to be a JavaScript bitcoin miner in your browser).

Given that the fix apparently works, is it possible to reverse-engineer the important part while removing the rubbish? The instructions mention extracting a .bin file - if you've already done this, could you examine it for any relevant info?

Seems a bit risky installing arbitrary firmware files...
