Gen:Application
It hasn't even been a week since the 'Annabelle Ransomware' made the news for attacking Process Hacker:

So BitDefender decided to show malware/spyware alerts for Process Hacker instead? :?

Thank you for contacting Bitdefender Business support.

Process Hacker is detected as Potential Unwanted Application (PUA/PUP) by AV Defender because it might nefariously interfere with AV Defender Services rendering them inoperable and unable to protect the end user against threats.

Panda Antivirus also flags processhacker as malware

How to resolve this "failure to communicate"?! It won't let me install, it whisks away the setup.exe

This is the answer to antiviruses:

that's just a throwaway tool for script kiddies.
real hackers modify the binary in runtime according to the antivirus, bit manipulation, XOR stubs, encrypting according to the antivirus behavior manually.

Process Hacker's powerful process termination capabilities bypass most security software and rootkits, ending the entire affected process. Skilled users can take advantage of Process Hacker's string scanning capabilities and other filtering methods to view what is causing a thread to hang and debug malware infections. But that's just a small sample of what Process Hacker can do: It not only views threads but also handles, DLLs, tokens, modules, memory lists, DEP status, and more. It can sandbox processes, too.
