Zaros client on spare PC detected by MalwareBytes as 0 day malware?

Haven't used the Zaros client on this side pc in a month or so, and when I booted up the 2nd pc today malwarebytes auto flagged the client as containing 0 day malware before I had opened the client, but my active pc doesn't flag the current version client.
Is there a reason for this to be flagged as malware?
I have preemptively uninstalled the client on both PCs and won't be playing until I receive an all clear explanation from staff on here.

@Spooky Should be able to explain why it may be coming up as that, there isn't actually any malware on the client though.

Which file specifically is it flagging? It's certainly a false positive, all our main files are signed by myself and have no changed since 1st December 2020 other than the mobile client.

 

Examples:

explorer_xI4TKMYdYj.png

mintty_8eO24rSsnj.png

 

Edit *

I've checked all our downloadable files agaisnt virustotal.com and they all come back negitive. virustotal checks agaisnt all popular antivirus software including malwarebytes.

I very much appreciate that edit, sorry I didn't get back asap, didn't realize you'd replied @Spooky. The files that were flagged were the .exe for launching the client itself and one of the files from the .zaros folder, I can't remember and didn't screenshot it.
I'm sure it's just something about the fact that it's a java file, I've had similar things happen before with games/mods for games but I'd never gotten the '0 day malware' warning before.

Again, I appreciate the replies and the verification that you did, I'm not very concerned about it anymore. Thank you.
