We are aware of the error and are working with the web-services team to address the issue.
The correct installer should be labeled as v1.36B and when installed, --version should produce this message:
$ xc16-gcc --version
elf-gcc (Microchip Technology) 4.5.1 (XC16, Microchip v1.36) (B) Build date: Jan 25 2019
Part support version: 1.36 (B)
__XC16_VERSION__ == 1036

We have run the v1.36B installed binaries against 'virustotal.com' and find that we get different answers, for successive scans and re-scans.
Our installed packages are virus free when we create them, and the installer runs consistency checks on the installed binaries to ensure that they match the built versions. In this way we can have high confidence that the installed binaries are identical to the ones we created.
[edit: further to checking the installed binaries, we run the same consistency check on all files that are installed.]
