This should no longer be detected anymore.

In case it is, please Quit malwarebytes from the systemtray.

In there, locate the file HubbleCache and delete it.

Restart Malwarebytes again. A new Hubblecache will then be created again, so it will properly pick it up and remember to not detect this anymore.
