MachineLearning/Anomalous.96% false positive

MachineLearning/Anomalous.96% false positive

the file setup1.exe is the MS front end to their installer "MS Visual Basic 6.0 Setup Toolkit". it is basically the front end user interface that launches another installation exe file.  i'm not sure why it's suddenly showing up as "MachineLearning/Anomalous.96%" by MB.

In the attached .zip i've included the setup1.exe file and i've also saved "log.txt" which is the malwarebytes log of the scan.

Thank you

This is detected by our MachineLearning engine, which helps to protect even better against 0day threats. Unfortunately, as this is a heuristic engine, it's possible False Positives happen. Also see here for more explanation: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/238670-machinelearninganomalous-detections-and-explanation/
Thanks for reporting these, as this helps to finetune the engine, so these won't be detected in the future anymore.

This should be fixed by now. Please give it some time (max 10 minutes) in order to have it populate, so detection won't happen anymore.
