Incorrect os-release file information

When I tried to resolve dnf conflicts I found that /etc/os-release contain some strange information:

NAME=Generic
VERSION="29 (Generic)"
ID=generic
ID_LIKE=fedora
VERSION_ID=29
PRETTY_NAME="Generic 29 (Generic)"
ANSI_COLOR="0;34"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:generic:generic:29"
HOME_URL="http://www.zombo.com/"
SUPPORT_URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help!_(album)"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://youtu.be/CSemARaqGqE"
REDHAT_BUGZILLA_PRODUCT="Generic"
REDHAT_BUGZILLA_PRODUCT_VERSION=%{bug_version}
REDHAT_SUPPORT_PRODUCT="Generic"
REDHAT_SUPPORT_PRODUCT_VERSION=%{bug_version}
PRIVACY_POLICY_URL="http://nsa.gov"

How this information could be written to this file? Is it some malvare? This happen not only on my computer but there are same cases happen with others, for example: https://forum.kuketz-blog.de/viewtopic.php?t=2476 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1568050
