Sorry for all the confusion. My testing earlier today was in error.

OpenSSH version 7.2_p2 is in fact included with macOS Sierra 10.12 and includes the ssh-agent process which tests as infected with Win.Trojan.Agent-1760811 and is therefore a False Positive. 

I have submitted it to the web site at this time and has an MD5 of 3cbe857b1bc267fb8fa5da3856008ddd.

Virus Total shows only ClamAV detection:

This is the third FP submitted in the last two days where ClamAV is the only scanner on VT showing infection of a legitimate commercial software file, so I have to wonder if there is some systemic issue with the signature automation process now.
