Microsoft is aware as discussed here.

Currently signatures on registry keys and values that are known to be
created by malicious software are reported as a detection for that threat,
even if no other files or other traces of the threat are found.

There are plans to change this behavior in the future, which should resolve
the issue.


Has it been confirmed as a false positive yet?

Read all the messages in this thread--particularly those from Jonah, and
from Mike Treit. I think this is as close as we are going to come to a
clear statement.
