Malwarebytes is scanned by virustotal and says it's a virus


Recommended Posts

Hi, I downloaded malwarebytes from the official site but scanning it on virustotal says it is a virus. Looking on the internet I saw that it is not a virus. But I want to be sure.

VirusTotal Scan:

Hello @Antony384 and :welcome:

Although that particular Malwarebytes stub installer scanned by VT is now obsolete, it is not uncommon for the heuristics code of a few VT scanners to arrive at a false positive conclusion.  Unfortunately even though reported, a few VT contributors fail to respond/react to a FP report.

Please consider deleting that obsoleted version from August and download the most up-to-date version: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/thankyou/

Thank you.
