I think the recent scan result of Malware.Heuristic.1008 is a false positive for aspnetcore-targeting-pack-6.0.0-rtm.21526.8-win-x64.msi. This file was used by WSL to find and install Linux distros in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). It's possible that aspnetcore-targeting-pack-6.0.0 was tampered with, but O haven't found any indications that's the case by searching for similar reports and malware scan results for MalwareBytes and other malware detection tools.

I've attached the scan log and a zipped copy of aspnetcore-targeting-pack-6.0.0-rtm.21526.8-win-x64.msi.

Thank you! I disabled it, scanned again and the file was not detected again. So that clears it up for me, but perhaps the MWB devs can use my attachments to double check the file and add it to their "known good" database to exclude it in the future.
