[Emerging-Sigs] Are these FPs or not?

In my experience, the UAS is seen only with the traffic generated by the malware on an infected machine; the UAS is not changed for all traffic. This rule does false sometimes. I have a couple of negations added locally, but I haven't seen yours before.

Lately, this UAS is seen with Cridex, and it has been a great rule for detecting that.

ET TROJAN Spoofed MSIE 7 User-Agent Likely Ponmocup    2012801 
WE have one machine on our wireless network which is repeatedly triggering this alert on what are clearly legitimate queries including things like this: 
GET /complete/search?output=firefox&hl=en&q=sion HTTP/1.1 
Connection: close 
Host: suggestqueries.google.com 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; en-US) 
On an infected machine does the useragent string get used on traffic generated by the malware or does the default UA get changed?
