  1. I'm using Malwarebytes and I don't know whether this is a known issue or not, but on certain C programs that I wrote (which allocate memory dynamically) are flagged as Trojans when I compile them with the Borland bcc32 compiler. None of the programs which use static memory allocation are flagged when compiled with the old Borland compiler (now Embarcadero). Some of my programs have been flagged in the past when I have compiled (Windows PE format) with gcc (Gnu Compiler Collection). None of the compiler sets produce any warnings when scanned, so it seems to be something peculiar to the executables produced by compilation. I just compiled the same programs with dynamic memory allocation with the Microsoft ® C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 15.00.30729.01 for x64 (under Windows7) and they produce no warnings. I am aware that I can exclude this directory from scanning, but I am reporting this for your benefit that you might find the cause of the false positive.
