This has already been reported [1]. It doesn’t apply to all ways 
of downloading. It applies if the executable was downloaded using 
a web browser but not curl. It basically applies to executables 
with the quarantine bit set. Downloading using a browser will set 
that bit. It can also be manually removed with the `xattr` 

IIRC, notarizing requires a paid developer account.
