Hi Marcus,

i checked the sha256 file hash


of pspp-64bit-install.exe for version 1.5.3-g797d4c

on the cisco webseite against their database


and the file is marked as malicious with a score of 2 out of 100 where 100 
means most malicious. There is a possibility to submit a „File Reputation 
Ticket“ for you as a customer of this product. My guess for the moment is that 
your protection software just makes a false classification based on rules which 
are not further explained. Maybe you could file such a ticket for your 
protection software.
