False Positive: MachineLearning/Anomalous.94% on VS 2017 vb.net debug

Recommended Posts

Hello, one of my Visual Studio vb.net projects is being flagged as MachineLearning/Anomalous.94% when it is being debugged. 

I have attached a copy of the file and the scan log.

Could you please confirm that this is a false positive?

Hi,

This is detected by our MachineLearning engine, which helps to protect even better against 0day threats. Unfortunately, as this is a heuristic engine, it's possible False Positives happen. Thanks for reporting these, as this helps to finetune the engine, so these won't be detected in the future anymore.

This should be fixed by now. Please give it some time (max 10 minutes) in order to have it populate, so detection won't happen anymore.

Please do the following to see if it corrects the issue as this may be due to local caching of the heuristics detection database:

  • Right-click on the Malwarebytes tray icon and select Quit Malwarebytes and click Yes if prompted by User Account Control
  • Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService and delete the HubbleCache file
  • Launch Malwarebytes again and it should no longer detect the file

If it is, then please let us know and the Research team will address it for you.

Thanks
