downloading FileZilla onto my Mac--I get 'permission denied' and cannot access

Reported by: Andrea Warner Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: adware or PUA detected/permission denied Cc:
Component version: OS X Yosemite Operating system type: OS X
Operating system version: 10.10.5


My MacBook Air is using OS X Yosemite version 10.10.5

From the site I click the green button on the download Client File Zilla.

1) I see, at the bottom left of my screen, it loading. It takes about 5 seconds, I briefly see a green check mark and then I see up at the top of my screen:my sophos anti-virus says "Adware or PUA detected by Sophos Anti-Virus" and "Adware or PUA InstallCore (ID:5) has been blocked and listed in Quarantine Manager" When I open Quarantine Manager I get: /Users/agw/Downloads/FileZilla_3.34.0_macosx-x86_setup_bundled.dmg

2) When I click on the rectangle for FileZilla, I get a 'warning' box that says 'the following disc images couldn't be opened' and then I get a small 'chart' where under image it says FileZilla_3.34_0 macos and under 'Reason' it says 'Permission denied'.

It's a tautological false-positive, everything is by its very definition potentially unwanted.

The offer-enabled installer is safe to use, it only does what it says it does.
