Others have reported this. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that some
random chunk of code or data won't hash to the same value as a virus; it's
statistically unlikely, but over time the probability of a false positive
will tend toward unity. And in fact false positives are rare but known to
happen, as one would expect.
