I have the paid version of Malwarebytes and the paid version detects this as malicious. As does the free version of Malwarebytes in Virus Total. If the paid version of Malwarebytes is detecting this, is it still going to auto-correct itself?
TRIED TO ISOLATE WHAT THE DETECTION WAS
In an attempt to try and discover what was causing the detection I commented out all button functionality in the application. I experimented with removing code signing as well. The app does not do anything other than load a window and Malwarebytes is still quarantining the file whenever I open it. I tried renaming the file and opening from different locations with the same results.
TOOK EXTREME MEASURES TO ISOLATE WHAT THE DETECTION WAS
To take it a step further I deleted all the commented out functionality and deleted all the code in the application in case word usage was a trigger. The version of the app that does nothing returns 4 different AV solutions in VirusTotal including Malwarebytes.
THERE IS NO LEGITIMATE REASON FOR THE DETECTION?
Malwarebytes returns https://blog.malwarebytes.com/detections/machinelearning-anomalous-100/
Will doing something like setting a cap or only allowing the application to encrypt one file at a time prevent it from being viewed as ransomware or whatever Malwarebytes is detecting?
