Visual Studio extension false positive

Recommended Posts

Hello,

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 see:

Nope, it's still being detected by scans even a day later. I even ensured current definitions before scanning.

Let's try this:

1. Totally exit/shutdown Malwarebytes.
2. Go to here in explorer:
3. C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService
4. delete the following file only: hubblecache. it doesn't have a file extension
5. Then you can restart MBAM and the cache file will rebuild on the next scan.

I'm seeing what I think are false positives in a Visual Studio extension VSIX file for PowerShell Tools.  I've gone through the steps above to delete the hubblecache file, and it still is detected by MalwareBytes.
