MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%

Recommended Posts

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. Also see here for more explanation: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/238670-machinelearninganomalous-detections-and-explanation/
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.

Yes, as that might probably trigger our behavior detections again.

I suggest you exclude this in general for the Antiransomware engine.

* To add the exclusion, open Malwarebytes > Settings > Exclusions tab
* Below, click the button: "Add Exclusion"
* Then, select "Exclude a File or Folder" (this should be prechecked already by default)
* Click Next
* You'll see a field that says: "Specify a File or Folder" - there, click the button "Select Files..." and browse to the file you want to exclude.
* For "How to Exclude", select: "Exclude from detection as malware, ransomware or potentially unwanted item" (this is normally also selected by default already)
* Then click the OK button below.

well, the problem is not about me, but are my customers that are worried because of this, I can tell them it is a false positive, but  you know... most users aren't really very smart and they will just think something bad

Yes, I totally understand and we are also always improving our detections based on this feedback, so these exclusions aren't needed anymore. 

But it's always a good idea anyway to ask them to exclude this folder nevertheless.
