Please check: Rez's Flowers


Recommended Posts

A musician friend of mine recently made an application called Rez's Flowers, a sort of dynamic vizualizer that creates its own music. However, people who've tried it out have gotten warnings from SmartScreen. I haven't had a chance to download it myself yet, but I promised that I'd get it run through Malwarebytes as soon as possible in the event that it shows up as a false positive.

I can't reproduce detection on this file. Can you post the Malwarebytes log where it shows it listed as detected?

Unless it's not what you really mean. A false Positive means it's incorrectly detected while it's harmless.

In this case, the file is harmless.

Read here for more info about smartscreen: https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/17443/windows-internet-explorer-smartscreen-filter-faq

In this case, I believe Smartscreen is giving a warnig because of the following reason: "SmartScreen also checks the files that you download against a list of files that are well known and downloaded by many people who use Internet Explorer. If the file that you're downloading isn't on that list, SmartScreen will warn you."

So it looks like this is not a known program at all, not very often downloaded/used, hence why Smartscreen doesn't have it in their list and gives a warning.


Hope this helps.
