Rancher Desktop automatic update to 1.8.1 made my malware scanner fire all alarm bells. 2 of the VirusTotal scanners found the same malware: Gen:Variant.Tedy
Can someone verify?

Likely a false positive; you can submit to the scanner vendors to verify and whitelist...
Unfortunately the quality of virus scanners is pretty poor nowadays, as the field is flooded with "heuristics" and "machine learning" scanners that will initially flag each new release. For a while it was enough for program to be compiled from C++ to be classified as Gen:Variant.Tedy. The vendors are just out-sourcing the training and white-listing of false positives to their users.
