FP? Virus Total flagged Configuredefender as Malware.Heuristic.1003

Recommended Posts

The engine format and configuration in VirusTotal is different than the 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.

It is not detected by the consumer or commercial versions of Malwarebytes.

I see, does that mean it is safe then?

It is clean and is becoming a well known tool. I have run it and all I can say is read the documentation carefully and be sure to follow instructions.

I did not feel the need to make any changes with it. I use Malwarebytes Premium along with Defender with default settings.

A restore point would be a wise precaution.

This still applies.

VT is having trouble reaching Malwarebytes cloud whitelist server.

The issue is being worked on and hopefully be corrected soon.🙂
