    Default Is Gen:Variant.Graftor a false positive?

    From the log:

    Gen:Variant.Graftor.116528: [SBI $SpybotAV] Executable (File, nothing done)
    C:\Program Files\Dropbox\Client\win32job.cp36-win32.pyd
    Category=Viruses
    ThreatLevel=5
    Weblink=http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?54
    Properties.size=28640
    Properties.md5=7D5CF29A51E213DB5B35D87F865C1B41
    Properties.filedate=1548144844
    Properties.filedatetext=2019-01-22 08:14:04

    Category is Viruses and Rule# is SpybotAV

    but a file scan shows that it is OK.

    Thanks

    This item has reappeared. As you can see, DropBox is used on this computer.

    Hello Chris Haslam,

    thank you for reporting this issue!
    This file belongs to the default Dropbox installation and should not be flagged as Virus by Spybot+AV. I scanned the file myself today and i could not reproduce the false positive.
    Please try updating the signatures again and hopefully it will not flag the file anymore.

    It disappeared from the Spybot report but has now re-appeared.

    Default Another false positive from Dropbox?

    The situation is the same as earlier in this thread but I now have C:\Program Files\Dropbox\Client\80.4.126\win32job.cp37-win32.pyd . Before I had C:\Program Files\Dropbox\Client\win32job.cp36-win32.pyd

    Another false positive?

    Hi, is the category Viruses and Rule# SpybotAV again? What are the file properties? I am just asking to find out where the rule at fault might be... thank you.
