Hello - I just wanted to follow up with this report with a bit more info
on this sig and sample.

I took a look at the reference sample a bit more today - in additional
to malicious activity, the sample dropped a legit (valid signature)
Microsoft installer which in turned phoned home to the Customer
Enhancement Improvement Program (ceip) which triggers this rule.

This rule will be moved to the DELETED category today due to triggering
on benign traffic.

Sorry for any noise the rule might have caused.
