False alarms related to Microsoft Updates on Windows 10?

Dear Sir,

 

Are we aware of possibly false trojan malware alarms occuring during Microsoft Updates? I have reports of this happening today on some Windows 10 computers in Hungary.

 

For example I can see this in F-Secure PSB portal happening on various school computers, but I have no access to samples, regrettably:

Threat: Trojan.Generic.15676248
Action: blocked
Path: F:\System Volume Information\DFSR\Private\{BFFFCE57-6480-40F9-9F24-284552F1FC32}-{8D4BC535-C650-4627-AA15-E75336D0A4E5}\Installing\Patch-{A1252A9E-F565-4365-96CB-D784464C7D1D}-v688895.exe

 

Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely:

    Dear Ben,

    Many thanks for the very quick response!

    Please note I have also sent a report to the lab, these are the data if needed for collaboration:
    Case ID: XXXXXXXXX
    Sandbox ID: XXXXX

    Yours Sincerely: Tamas Feher, Hungary.

    EDIT: Removed PII

    The sample we have seems to be properly detected and not only by us.

     

    Our labs would definitely need a sample to be able to cross check your detection sample.

    by the way -> it's most popular detection (today?):

    and does not detected by F-Secure a week ago (as example):

    Hello,

    Is your system pirated or is it a legitimately licenced Windows copy?

    Best Regards: Tamas Feher, Hungary.
