My SIEM is alerting me a "Recon - Horizontal SMB Scan - Events or Flows" , there is no malware detected as I scan the endpoint in suspicion of wannacry ransomware, is this a false positive?. Below is the sample packet capture, I've edited some of the info for privacy purposes.

You should review the host and determine if this is expected activity.
By default this rule detects connections from a source IP to 10 distinct internal destination IPs in 10 minutes over tcp ports 137, 139, 445.
These rules need to be tuned for your environment. Is the source IP a scanner, asset management system, etc? You may need to exclude it from the rule or you may need to adjust the thresholds.
