Title Apple denies access to new download of Musescore 3.4.2 - can't check for malware. macOS 10.15 denies access to newly installed Musescore - can't check for malware.

Assuming this is only macOS 10.15 and opening new installation not opening an installer.

I can't find the official workaround in the FAQ https://musescore.org/en/faq#faq-20592 any more. Assuming it was removed.

Having the MS version probably helps with the visibility and "dating" the issue

Access it from the Finder, in /Applications. Click right on it. When it asks you if you really want to, click "open".

Fix version
