 Did I download a hacked version of nmap or is this just another
effort to kill the use of nmap?

It's probably classifying it as such because port scans (or whatever  
you're up to) might also be performed by certain kinds of malware  
(e.g. trojan infected machines being used for DDoS). I seriously  
doubt nmap has been specifically classified as malware.
