I use WSCC - Windows System Control Center - to access all of Sysinternals tools as well as all of Nir Sofer's NirSoft tools.  MBAM has *always* found exception with numerous tools provided by both sites, and I always have to add an exception for the folders where the tools from each website reside on my drive as well as in my PortableApps version of WSCC.


If you'd like, I can remove the exclusions, let MBAM scan the files, and then send each of the ones that triggers a response in MBAM.

Came in this morning to find hundreds of infections. newsid.exe. Second large false positive we've had from MBAM. Fotrunetly this is only in the set up direcoty and not buisness emparitive like the last one. Might want a bigger bed of testing before you send out updates.

I got the false positive of file newsid.exe


sha256 = c2f4591f7e9598ceb47cbce280180b3e104f70509dce7d1e90ca758f69d79ddd

sha1 = 4c64df34ef8f8faa757e1d4482486453d7425752

md5 = 73e708d1126e7af86a4ef820c24d80e4

Virustotal reports it as malwarebytes being the only virus program that reports it being bad.


I unquarantined & updated malwarebytes to v2014.03.18.10 and re-scanned.  No malicious items were detected this time.  Thanks for fixing this false positive.
