July 18 2014 F-Secure detected infection in its own updates

Late evening EST on July 18th 2014, my server was bombarded with alerts what looks look like the diffs for F-Secure definitions updates for Client Security:

 

Malicious code found in file C:\Windows\Temp\fsaua.tmp\difflist_ourPMS_ServerDNS_80_576687434_1\cevakrnl.rv1.
Infection: Win95.CIH.299

This should not ever happen,kinda late, but I am sharing that with others through this forum.
