ubuntu fixdep causes malware alerts

L2 Linker

Hi all, I have an ubuntu user which throws up malware alerts on a seemingly innocent ubuntu component - fixdep. I havent seen anything online about it being used in malicious activities , and it dosent show up on other ubuntu workstations. 

Has anyone encountered this before? i am somewhat at a loss in this case
