Subject: Malwarebytes flags qdbusviewer-qt5.exe as Adware.Elex malware



I am using the following version of cygwin on a Windows 7 computer: 

$ uname -a 
CYGWIN_NT-6.1 e250 2.6.0(0.304/5/3) 2016-08-31 14:27 i686 Cygwin 

Why does Malwarebytes flag this file: 
C:\cygwin\usr\x86_64-w64-mingw32\sys-root\mingw\bin\qdbusviewer-qt5.exe 

as Adware.Elex malware?
