Downloading 1.6.7 beta 2 (trojan?)

I see that my Windows 10 quarantines the download, with the following info.  This is beyond any of the usual MS Defender warnings:

Detected: Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.B!ml
Quarantined files are in a restricted area where they can't harm your device.
They will be removed automatically.
Date: 5/20/2021 10:55 AM
Details: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.
Affected items:
ile: C:\Users\. . .\Downloads\foobar2000_v1.6.7_beta_2.exe

Anyone know: Is there indeed a threat here?  Thanks, N.

yeah, it is so stupid by microsoft, also, after the update (20H1), it's started to send some executables that i daily use to quarantine for the suposed same reason that is in the link shows. i had to make it "allow", and then deactivated the realtime protection, for the sake of this.
11 years latter.... i finally created an account.

For that kind of reasons I stopped using windows defender long time ago.

Thanks to you both.  I suspended Windows Defender and then downloaded.  I got no such warnings, by the way, with beta 3.
