Possible false positive C2 traffic

L2 Linker

Hello,

Starting on 31st of October following the threat and content update 8480-7019, we noticed that traffic to wordpress sites ending in the URL wp-content/plugins/elementor/assets/lib/swiper/swiper.min.js is being flagged as generic C" traffic. Checked the IP addresses and URLs on Virustotal and they are all clean.

Wondered if anyone else has been experiencing this?
