"The House of the Dead" game executable detected as Malware.Heuristic.1004


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Do you have "Use expert system algorithms to identify malicious files" enabled? It is located in Settings > Security> Scan option.

This is normally disabled by default.

In either way, Staff will look into this and get this fixed.

Thanks for reporting!

FYI. This setting is in the experimental stage.

That setting is to detect malformed files but sometimes legit files use protection that make them malformed. Malwarebytes is still tweaking the algorithms that is why it’s off by default. If you switch it on it is assumed, you are able to tell the difference between a FP and a legit detection. 

And if you keep it on, I suggest also turn off auto quarantine. Gives you the time to report FP's and not go thru the extra step to have to restore from quarantine.

Please turn off "Use expert system algorithms to identify malicious files"  It is located in Settings > Security> Scan option to avoid these detection's

Thanks very much for your prompt reply and clarification. I checked and the option was in fact active; the file was not detected anymore after I disabled it.

I forgot about that feature because it has been on for a very long time (I think I turned it on when you implemented it and I never turned it off), and I very seldom got "weird" detections that I didn't expect.

Either way, I would prefer to keep it on and if you fixed this detection anyway, like you said, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks a lot again!

Hello,

Thanks very much for your efficiency, I'm really grateful for this.

The file is not being detected anymore. @Porthos Thanks for your suggestion about auto-quarantine; I read it in your first reply and the feature is already disabled.

 

Since you're so kind and helpful, I would like to ask you one more thing related to this detections:

I have another version of the file which is patched with a tool to fix a problem with audio tracks in the game (it's called "_inmm.dll 2.38"), and it's behaving like the original: it's detected as "Malware.Heuristic.1004", and is not detected at all when "Use expert system algorithms to identify malicious files" feature is off.

I attached the file and the Log. If you could be so kind to help me and remove the detection with this file as well, you'd do to me a great favor.

 

Thanks a lot once again for the assistance and for any kind help you can provide with the new file  :)

Stefano
