Virus Disclaimer

Antivirus flags AdiIRC as having a virus or trojan.

If you are unsure, the false positives seems to be resolved after a few weeks, you can try update again then. Also be free to scan AdiIRC executable on VirusTotal, there are over 50 virus scanners, usually a tiny amount of engines are flagging it, a strong indication it is a false-positive.

C:\> choco install adiirc

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
