Chrome warns the 1.8 binary download "appears malicious" is this normal or are there checksums available?

First time I hear about this. Where did you download Gradle from? Unfortunately, we don’t currently publish checksums.

http://www.gradle.org/downloads

Not sure why you get this warning. Does it provide any more information? I’m also using Chrome, and I’ve never gotten a warning for a Gradle download (including 1.8-bin).
