Just downloaded a new update for OCCT and the iron curtain, Windows Defender, caught some trojan, Trojan:Win32/Spursint.Q!cl Said it was severe. Took a screen shot of Windows Defender info, will post it later.

Word of caution: of course OCCT is a low profile program and noone sane would target it. But there has been a lot of "supply chain" attacks lately, where legitimate applications and frameworks ( and ironically even security software like Solarwinds) get hacked on source level and bad update with trojans is pushed to unsuspecting clients.

My recommendation - simply wait for next release of OCCT, devs are probably aware of triggering the Windows Defender and will push new app build soon.

EDIT: actually the update is up already, in changelog for OCCT:
