Malicious in the sandbox tests

Hello community,

I was trying to install Psychopy in our lab on campus. However, the IT team told me that after testing in the sandbox, the Psychopy standalone installer (2024.1.4) was detected as malicious software that prohibit us from installing it on the University’s PCs. They mentioned a so-called “Privateloader” malware was detected during installation. We need some advice to respond to the IT team that the software is safe to be installed on campus.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
Best,
Carl
