A “false positive” – also known as a false detection or false alarm – is when antivirus software identifies a non-malicious file as a virus.
False positives usually occur when an antivirus program detects a known virus string in an uninfected file. The file, while not infected with an actual virus, does contain a string of characters that matches a string from an actual virus.
A false positive can also occur when a program performs an action, which appears to the antivirus program to be a virus-like activity.
