Backdoor:PHP/webshell Malware

I have this website which i want to replace because its outdated, we made a new website. But as always before uploading the new website to the live environment i make a backup of the current live website. While i was downloading the WordPress installation my windows defender popped up with the following message. Malware found:

Backdoor:PHP/webshell

What exactly is this? Is it dangerous for my computer or is it a backdoor for the website. How did this happen. Anything would be really helpful on this matter. Should i run a scan on my whole computer?

Thanks in advance.
