Bookmark library system false positive

Malwarebytes recently reported a false positive for ransomware on the Bookmark library management system for schools, used by over 2,000 schools in Australia. It even did this on my home PC. The false positive is for all exe files. I am the system developer. I wrote and compiled these myself. They have been recompiled just this morning. The false positive is likely related to PureLocker, which uses the same cross-platform programming language, PureBasic. These false positives were a huge problem last year when the ransomware appeared but have mostly been whitelisted by anti-virus companies. I just submitted a zip file containing the 32-bit exe's to Virus total.

16 out of 64, a clear false positive result.

I have also recompiled the main exe's as 64-bit programs. https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/8f0270cf9e8afdbbd2e48e27a91b223c187797fa8416c5cf958fe09f3ed0d1b8/detection

3 out of 65 this time.

Can these files please be whitelisted?
