The audio equalizer I use called PEACE was detected as malware today after upgrading to the latest version.

I hope this is a false positive.

Hi,

This is most probably a caching issue, so 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.

Oh I see now.

The attached file earlier was the installer that was posted and not the Peace.exe file itself.

Give me a bit as I need to install it as well on a separate PC in order to get the file.

Hmm, looks like it won't install here since I don't have Equalizer APO installed.

Mind to zip and attach the Peace.exe here please?

Thanks.

This should work again now. No need to update the database as this takes immediate effect already anyway.

Please wait for about a 10 minutes, just in case. If still being detected, then it might be the caching issue (as some ISPs do proxy-caching), so just delete the hubblecache again then for it to take immediate effect.
