Hello! I have this encrypted note from CherryTree, and after I scan my device for viruses. The Clam virus scanner, said "Heuristics.Encrypted.7Zip" I'm just wondering if this is a real virus or even a real threat?

Hello then00b,

it says here http://lists.altn.com/WebX?7@@.598621d4/1 
this is a false positive,  in reply #2 it  discusses editing of conf. file.


I use no computer in work, I am just a home user, at beginner/learning Linux stage.
Trying to join in with community and assist where it may be possible :)
