A false positive in a piece of software I myself created (Screensaver)


Recommended Posts

Years ago I created a screensaver at the behest of a family member because they wanted to watch movies and TV shows while at work during idle time. When the screensaver starts, it calls a playlist and begins playing local video files. It was created in Clickteam Fusion. (www.clickteam.com).

I have placed this screensaver on my itch.io page. https://hotdoglaser.itch.io/screensaver-theater

Today, Malwarebytes has run a scan on my system and decided to place part of the screensaver in quarantine for supposedly containing malware. I can assure you, the file contains no malware, and I even offer up the .mfa source code on the itch.io page for anyone to inspect or modify. I have the version installed that I myself created, so I don't think I'd give myself malware. Here's the report from MWB:
