Why Are NMAP and NETCAT included in the lasted Desktop central update? Antivirus alert

Hello,
We downloaded the latest PPM from your website and as soon as our antivirus scanned the files it throws an alert about NetCat being included in this build.

What possible valid reason could these tools (Nmap and Netcat) be included for?  Is this a supply chain exploit?  You may want to check you code and builds for possible compromise.  We will not be downloading this build until we get answers to our questions.
