Cause of "suspicious cloud 5" in software distribution downloads folder.
I used my laptop for the first time today within a month and about ten minutes after turning it on Norton told me it was processing a suspicious cloud 5 threat. It then went on to quarantine the file as high risk. The link to the file given was: c:\windows\softwaredistribution\download\0b0ae6ec809c50e16034235461de3cce\bit3865.tmp
After a search on Google I'm under the impression that this folder is linked to windows update. Am I correct? The last windows update done on this laptop would have been a month ago when it was last used. The programmes running during the ten minutes prior to this file detection were Google Chrome (Facebook only), Spotify and also Dropbox which was syncing.
My main reason for writing here is that I am a bit confused as to where this file came from. Is it something to be worried about or is it simply a false positive?
Thanks in advance.
