GIMP: Avast reports "Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]" in gspawn-win32-helper.exe, blocks download

Trying to upgrade to GIMPPortable_2.8.6.paf.exe via the inbuilt updater fails due to AVAST! Antivirus' Web Protection blocking

http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/project/portableapps/GIMP%20Portable/Ad...|>$OUTDIR\gimp\bin\gspawn-win32-helper.exe

and

http://kent.dl.sourceforge.net/project/portableapps/GIMP%20Portable/Addi...|>$OUTDIR\gimp\bin\gspawn-win32-helper.exe

and reporting

Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]

in

gspawn-win32-helper.exe

Real? False alarm? What to do?
