Cant install Kali Linux WSL, Sophos blocking it

Hi all,

I am trying to install Kali Linux from the Microsoft Store on Windows 10 20H2 but it is being blocked by Sophos as a PUA (due to the nature of the apps it uses). is there a way to allow install and use of this without Sophos scanning it? can I add an exception in Sophos Central even just for one user?

Cheers
