Malwarebytes just detected ProtonVPN update as malware. Is this likely a false positive?

I’ve had ProtonVPN on my computer since before I re-downloaded Malwarebytes a couple of weeks ago and Malwarebytes never detected a problem with ProtonVPN before.

Is this possibly malware using proton’s name or just a false positive? I don’t use any other VPNs. File name below. Many thanks.

Definitely a false positive, Malwarebytes is full of false positives ever since they introduced AI/ML into their products.
