False positives for PingUp.exe/MachineLearning/Anomalous.97%

Recommended Posts

Virustotal scan with Malwarebytes reports false positives for PeaZip Portable 8.0.0 (and for some older versions) as MachineLearning/Anomalous.97%

see in example:


Please let me know if I can do something on my side to avoid this false positive detection for the future, and please - if possible - take care to fix the false positive detections occurring on existing PingUp packages.

Kind regards,

Daniel Fontenelle

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.
