PSUCalc Updater false positive


Recommended Posts


Just had a notice from some of my users finding that some of PSUCalc's files seem to be picked up by MalwareBytes.

It seems the PSUCalc Updater is being (falsely) accused of being a Backdoor.Agent.DC.

I know it is not - I programmed it.

I have attached the Updater.exe file below, and the log.

Here is the log:

I think I launched MalwareBytes correctly, I did run it with /developer.
