Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

To be quick,
* WMAL should be buried by now
* FLAC is kind of king of the hill in terms of support; ALAC is likely #2 since Apple pushes it
* ALAC is not checksummed
* WavPack does have this hybrid mode, if you want the lossy + correction file format
* OptimFrog and WavPack support floating-point.
* OptimFrog is very slow and probably the least used of these
* You forgot Monkey and TAK.
* You would have found all this by searching the forum (I guess that is sort of a "lossless compression" by itself).
