Strange Virus Alerts: Detection date "12/30/99" & Virus name "None"?


I have ePO configured to send me an e-mail when one of our computers reports a malware detection.  It's worked without problem for years, but in the past week I've had two e-mails telling me that computers have detected "None" malware occurring on 12/30/99 e.g.

    String in e-mail:

        [ComputerName] | 12/30/99 00:00:00 UTC | Windows 7 |SYSTEM | ###.##.##.107 |  | none |

    Alert Format:

       {listOfTargetHostName} | {listOfDetectedUTC} | {listOfOsType} |{listOfTargetUserName} | {listOfTargetIPV4} | {listOfEventDesc} | {listOfThreatName} | {listOfTargetFileName}

When I look up the computer's threat events in ePO there's no sign of these events against the computers that have allegedly detected them.  Anyone know what this might be (hopefully not a corrupt DB).  Anyone seen this before?
