Do you have the following setting enabled? If so the default is supposed to be off currently.

If you restore the file and rescan It will not be detected.

Thanks. I've disabled and no longer being detected. Does this open me up to increased risk?

Thanks,

No

It is to detect malformed files but sometimes legit files use protection that make them malformed. We are still tweaking the algorithms that is why it’s off by default. If you switch it on it is assumed you are able to tell the difference between a FP and a legit detection. 

And if you keep it on I suggest also turn off auto quarantine. Gives you the time to report FP's and not go thru the extra step to have to restore from quarantine.

In either way, we will look into this and get this fixed.

Thanks for reporting!
