Why does Microsoft Defender SmartScreen always red flag the SDK?

Every time I tried to download the new SDK it is red flagged by Microsoft Defender SmartScreen. I took the liberty of reporting the file as safe a few times, but with every new release you need to convince Microsoft Defender SmartScreen that the file is safe and nothing malicious all over again. I am simply curious as to why? The Docs and the Samples download just fine, and Microsoft Defender SmartScreen leave these alone. It only has quite an issue with the SDK core! Most unusual...

I get that issue with all three parts of the SDK - I always have. Reporting it makes no difference.

Ugh, only now I notice that the simpler samples and the DA62 sample are separate downloads and .msi installers, in addition to the Core and Documentation ones. No idea how old the copies that I have been looking at until now are. Thanks;)

The issue is that those MSIs are not signed - action has been taken to resolve the issue on our (Microsoft/Asobo) end.

Best regards,
