I tried to download license installer of Komodo Personal 11 for windows, then Windows Defender blocks it.
And it reports that 'Trojan:Win32/Spisky.U!cl' is detected.

I downloaded it on my Mac, then I move it to OneDrive, but Windows 10 denies sync to pc's storage.

Every License installer will have a unique name, so scanners that rely on "Reputation-based" algorithms will not have seen it before, and will typically report some kind of trojan with a generic identity.

Defender has typically allowed the file to be downloaded anyway if you force it. Other vendor's products do not allow the user to override.
