Tried to install the Avast Security pkg on the latest public beta of macOS Catalina and was give a popup saying the installer can't be opened because it can't be checked for malicious software.  this software needs to be updated.

Tom,

I hope the Avast Mac development group is on top of this and it would be nice if someone from Avast would reply to this post.

I completely agree - in the mean time though have just found that if you right click on the installer and select 'Open' it will allow you to install it  :)
Not a solution but a workaround whilst on the Beta

Steven204 - as the version 14.0 was released - would you mind to retest with it? It should work.
Quality is also a feature.
