Thanks for reporting, the detection for the file will be fixed in 10 minutes. To avoid having this happen again, please add the location of your script to the allow list.

Thanks for this.

The problem with adding it to the all list is that this is going to work on my computer. I am wanting to distribute this program to others.

I understand that the program could have to potential to be a virus,so how do I register it/myself so I can distribute it freely?

We typically advise developers to add their working directory to the allow list first. If that is not ideal, (from MachineLearning/Anomalous Detections and Explanation)

We would encourage all software developers to avoid packing or obfuscating their code after compilation, use consistent Version Information and to digitally sign their code to guarantee its integrity.

For more information, you can read MachineLearning/Anomalous Detections and Explanation.

If those changes can't be made, we may have to whitelist the file when it gets detected.

Thanks for this,

For now can the program please be white listed?

When I update the script again, I have found an option in the compiler to add file version and company name and a few other things so I will fill that out and see how it gets on.

The file you've attached is already whitelisted. :) If it is still being detected, please clear your hubblecache. 

To clear hubble cache please do the following:

  1. Click on the Malwarebytes icon in the system tray
  2. Select "Quit Malwarebytes"
  3. Navigate to %PROGRAMDATA%\Malwarebytes\MBAMService
  4. Delete the file HubbleCache
  5. Open Malwarebytes

OK, sounds good.
