MichineLearning false positive for CodeXCavator2

Recommended Posts

If you download the Deploy.zip from this project:

https://github.com/Ben136KBC/CodeXCavator2

Then malwarebytes identifies it as a machine learning thread. This is a code indexing tool, I work on developing it, all the code everything is available, there is nothing malicious.

(The same goes for the original version which you can get from here: https://sourceforge.net/p/codexcavator/wiki/Home/  )

Please see if there is a way to avoid this false positive?

Thank you.

Hi,

This was 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:

However, I can't reproduce detection anymore, so this might have been fixed already.

If it's still detected on your end, then Quit malwarebytes from the systemtray. Then navigate to the following folder:

C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService

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.

@miekiemoes, thank you, I can confirm that deleting HubbleCache causes MalwareBytes to no longer warn about this application. Thank you. Any idea how long it would take for this change to normally propagate, so that you don't have to delete it (on other machines, for other people etc.)

Normally, it propagates immediately, but for some users, where the detection was happening already, it might still show as detected. I think it has to do with the ISP and if it does proxycaching as well. In either way, any user who didn't have a detection already on these won't get it either. (Hence why I couldn't reproduce detection on my end either)
