HTTP Possible Malicious PDF File Detected

Anyone else see a very high false positive rate for this attack?  I'm curious if anyone can provide insight into this particular alert and perhaps what characteristics and signatures are used to detect.  Just curious for any thoughts, suggestions, or feedback.


I've even seen this alert occur when downloading PDFs from including the NSP admin guides.
