Thank you for contact Palo Alto Networks for this potential False Positive.  Please allow us some time to investigate the sample to determine if it is malicious or not.

Re: False positive submission (generic.ml)

We've changed the category from malware to grayware.  Grayware typically falls under the category of PUPs, Potentially Unwanted Programs.  They aren't inherantly malicous but may often be unwanted.  Things like browser plug-ins often fall into this category.  

 

As it isn't classified as malicious you shouldn't have any issues going forward.
