Gramps(latest portable version) have malware detection

I scanned gramps portable version using latest clamwin portable version(virus database updated to today's edition). I think there's a malware in it.Report was as follows:

ClamWin False Positives

ClamAV has frequent false positives with Windows apps. Here's a scan of Gramps Portable to confirm: https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/4e512cc0eecd56ac321ab574aaf4ddf6b99364...

Always Verify

No matter what antivirus scanner you use, you will run into false positives. You can use something like VirusTotal or MetaDefender online to verify. ClamAV has more issues with false positives on Windows as it is more Linux-centric. They are pretty responsive in dealing with false positive reports, though.
