Downloaded Geekbench 5 and got this message:

“Geekbench 5” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information.

    Geekbench 5 is not yet notarized. On Catalina you can open Geekbench by Control-clicking the app, choosing Open from the menu, and in the dialog that appears, clicking on Open.

    We expect to have a notarized version of Geekbench available ahead of Catalina's release.

    The Geekbench 5 update 5.0.3, released today, includes notarization.
    Thanks for your patience!
