Possible false positives - ASP.Net Information Leak Vulnerability

Starting on September 4th we've been seeing multiple "ASP.Net Information Leak Vulnerability" warnings in our logs. They are showing as originating from multiple sources within our internal network. Malware scans come up with nothing on these workstations and we haven't made any changes to anything. Is anyone else seeing these?
