Yes, Defender/MS Security Centre is now doing that, - It's because of a new setting "Potentially unwanted app blocking", you can turn it off if you want to.

Note that the words used are  POTENTIALLY UNWANTED.

Only you can decide if you want something or not.

But it seems that Microsoft have deemed that you can no longer be trusted make your own decisions about what to download/install and that they have to nanny you.
Who decides if an app is classed as "low-reputation" by Defender/Windows Security is of course Microsoft themselves.
(And at the moment it seems to be that if it's not in the Microsoft Store then they will give it a "low-reputation").

It's like how Google are always trying to push you to their Play Store.

In the case of CCleaner Microsoft say that they are doing it because the Standard CCleaner installer may (it doesn't always) offer you another product, such as AVG antivirus, you can always decline that offer if you don't want AVG or whatever is being offered.
