I'm sorry, but you are just not correct. Windows Defender on two different computers (both with Windows 10) has not complained about Calibre 5.14.0.

I did a Windows Update after I posted and still no issue with Windows Defender and Calibre 5.14.

This indicates that it is the definitions, er, "intelligence" though.

I don't know how one person gets a warning where nobody else is getting one all using the same program unless the OP did not download from the Calibre site and did get a copy that is infected from some other site.

It's not detecting anything on my end either.

The OP said they got the files from three different sources, the main site and alternates (fosshub and github). It's unlikely that all three of them were compromised.
