False Positives With Some Norton (Symantec) Anti-virus Products (WS.Reputation.1)
Executable files from smaller independent developers are often knobbled by this troublesome 'feature' triggering a false positive. It occurs when an executable file does not have enough, so called, 'reputation' from the wisdom of crowds to pass Norton's filters.

In effect, every new release file will fail this test. What is worse, files may be placed in quarantine or deleted without informing the user! For more information, including bypass instructions, please see: https://community.norton.com/en/forums/clarification-wsreputation1-detection

If not convinced, uploading the install file to https://www.virustotal.com should allay fears by scanning the file with several anti-virus engines.
