Thanks for the report. Some false positives are lately being observed with the PHP7 bins, while there is no real base for concerns proved. Fe

Fe Symantec reports green here, while there is one vietnam antivirus still reports something. I would kindly ask you to start the conversation with Symantec, to clear out what the exact reasons are. Also please check your bases are up to date. The description provided here doesn't help to understand what the exact issue is, and the OSes listed are not supported since PHP 5.5.

Thanks you.
