MachineLearning False positive

Recommended Posts

I have been writing this program for like 10 years for my mom, updating some code yesterday and all of a sudden it's tagged as MachineLearning / Anomalous 95%. I don't pack or obfuscate it but maybe i should digitally sign it. I have also added it to exclusions and still gets tagged.

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.

Awesome thank you, I read the explanations, I'm just curious as to why all of a sudden, can you tell exactly where it thinks its bad or what's its doing? maybe I can change that part of the code to be better.
