I really think this is a false positive this is a legal executable of 7Zip Console

Here's the developers log :

Same here, but the 7z.exe file is detected only because it is located in system32. I have 7-zip installed, and 7z.exe's default location is inside program files\7-zip, this file was not flagged, so I had to duplicate it to system32 to have it detected, and only that copy was flagged.
