Some points you might want to consider:
Security issues reported here -
One other detection here - - in the Details section it is reporting multiple redirects.
Webpage Security Score F outdated software and other security issues reported -

You can use the - Reporting a Possible False Positive File or Website -
You should get a response in a day or two.

Given the above it might be a good detection.
