Had to tunr of AI due to too many false positives..


Recommended Posts

..and to add insult to injury, I get a mail from Malwarebytes proudly proclaiming that it has protected me.

I know I can report false positives, but I simply don't have the time. I know heuristics and such is hard, but come on..

Greetings,

Thanks for the feedback.  Just to clarify, are you referring to the option Use artificial intelligence to detect threats (scans may take longer), or are you referring to the newer Use expert system algorithms to identify malicious files which was introduced more recently?

Thanks, that feature is disabled by default because it is still being developed and tuned by Malwarebytes' Developers and Researchers, hence the high rate of FPs.  You may keep it disabled and once it is ready for its full rollout it will be enabled by default in a future release.

Alright, I had to see if I was correct, so I checked the logs and it says:

Scan Type: Threat Scan
Scan Initiated By: Scheduler

Heuristics: Enabled

Filesystem: Enabled

Does this tell anything about which scan "module" is used?

As long as the following is turned off the mentioned setting here than it is off until a future update enables it. I does not show up on the scan log currently as far as I know.

I can turn it back on and see whether it detects the false positives again.

It would be really helpful if you at least posted the scan log if you have FP's after the scan.
