Open Source app detected as a virus


Recommended Posts

I am coming back to you since the software is still detected as a malware by MalwareBytes (malwarebyteslogs.txt).

I then realized Malwarebytes wasn't up to date so I uploaded it, but is still sees AstroSaveConverter as a Malware (malwarebyteslogs2.txt). No new version of AstroSaveConverter has been realised.


Thanks for your help

Hello Cli,

Thanks a lot for your help. Thanks to the hubblecache clear, Malwarebytes doesn't see the program as a virus anymore.

However, it still shows up on VirusTotal, is there anything I should do about it ?

Also, we will probably release a new version of the software in a few weeks : will the new version be detected as a virus aswell ? Can we do anything to prevent that ?


Once again, thanks for your time and your help

Our engine format and configuration in VirusTotal is different than our consumer and corporate products’ default configuration. In VirusTotal we use a command-line engine with different configuration and detection techniques/heuristics which might detect more than the commercial product. There are also false-positive suppression mechanisms in the commercial product which are not present in the command-line engine in VirusTotal.

This file has been whitelisted for our commercial products and it is not detected anymore.
