DeepGuard blocks python.exe

This morning I created a new Conda environment for the latest version of Python 2.7, using the MiniConda3 package manager (updated to the latest version).


While using this Python version, I got the following warning from F-Secure SAFE:


Application was blocked from accessing your files: "python.exe"

Reason: Trojan:W32/CryptoRansomwareBehavior.B!DeepGuard, location: c:\users\myname\miniconda3\envs\client-v2\python.exe


Is this something to be worried about, or is this a false positive?


I would expect Python obtained from Conda to be safe...

    You can send the .exe file to the labs and they will analyse it, and whitelist if safe:
