Anaconda exe files turning up as malware

Hi Newby here.

I just installed Anaconda last week. (https://www.anaconda.com/) individual edition.

My automatic scan by Malwarebytes returned and quarantined 5 of the executables as malware.

Using Jupyter Notebook

Haven’t tried yet to run the program since the quarantine.

Workaround or some other advice would be welcomed. Is it a False alarm???

Thank you,

Phil
