Possible false positive: Hyperion Download Manager

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've just got a report that two files associated with the Hyperion Download Manager are "MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%". I don't know for sure, but my guess is that this is a false positive. Hyperion Download Manager is a utility for downloading audio files from the Hyperion record label (https://www.hyperion-records.co.uk) and I installed it intentionally. According to Settings the current version is v1.24, installed on 4 August 2019. It may be, of course, that the app has been compromised in some way, but it seems unlikely to be a zero-day if it dates back to August.

Hi there Richard,

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. 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.

If still detected on your end after ~10 minutes from now. Perform the following steps: 

  1. Totally exit/shutdown Malwarebytes.
  2. Go to here in explorer: C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService
  3. Delete the following file only: hubblecache
  4. Then you can restart MBAM and the cache file will rebuild on the next scan.
