Day 19 - Upgrading to Go 1.5.1 on Win7 64

I upgraded to Go 1.5.1 from 1.4.2 today

0:) Deinstall old version of Go (doc/install)

1:) Download

2:) Get worried by this message from chrome:

It says that there is something fishy with the download and could be harmful.

3:) Go on and accept it - its from google, so what ...

4:) Go to the download folder and run your virus scanner over the msi:

5:) UhOh - WTF is an Archive Bomb?

6:) Google for Archive Bomb, read Wiki about Zip_bomb

7:) Looks like its detected because of special compression used by bzip2, i feel brave today and go on installing the msi.

8.) Checking again the c:\go folder for viruses - all ok

D:\>go version
go version go1.5.1 windows/amd64 

Yeah, it works

10:) Recompiling and running some of my most important projects - no problems whatsoever.
