MachineLearning/Anamolous, GenericMalware/Suspicious, false positive or no?


Recommended Posts

Potential game launcher malware, I would like to see if they are a false positive or not.

Here's the log, as well as a sample of the files in question.

As a sidenote, these files are indeed "cracked" game files, and I do not get the same result with the originals. Note that also, only some of the varied language .exe files were detected as potential malware at first, and on a second scan I believe it determined another file to be potential malware, too.

I would mainly like to know, if possible, if the files are indeed malware, or if they are only being detected as such due to the "cracked" nature of the files.

Thank you for reading.

These aren't real false positives. While in this case, they appear to be harmless, we have learned that cracked/hacked files often bundle additional malware, this is also why we detect by default to protect our users + the fact that using cracked/hacked files is always a risk as it also might lower the security of the program.
