(ISDC, Versoix), and J.Borkowski (CAMK, Torun) on behalf of the IBAS
Localization Team report:

the IBAS alert n. 8033 was not due to a GRB. It was caused by the
transient source MAXI J1820+070 not recognized due to slightly incorrect 
real-time attitude information.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
