PUP.SpyBoss in my shareware


Recommended Posts


I'm a shareware vendor and I'm getting a strange false positive that is affecting all of my shareware that is built with Visual Studio 6.

MalwareBytes detects 'PUP.SpyBoss' in all of them. For programs built in other languages (RealBasic) there are no problems.

Here is a link to one of the files I'm having trouble with:


I have attached the scan log for that file.

There are about 10 other files with the same issue. I can provide links to those if it would help.
