False Positive mp3DirectCut


Recommended Posts

The latest Malwarebytes update gives a (false?) alarm on mp3DirectCut (.exe and .lnk files).

All VirusTotal engines claim that the executable is clean.


This was posted on another forum by a person who does not have an account here. I'm posting it here to help him out.

Hello @cli:

The following VT detection analysis is derived from the user's posting at Wilders:



File: 2
Malware.Heuristic.1003, C:\USERS\XIII\APPDATA\ROAMING\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Apps\MP3 Direct Cut.lnk, No Action By User, 1000001, 0, , , , , ,
Malware.Heuristic.1003, C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MP3DIRECTCUT\MP3DIRECTCUT.EXE, No Action By User, 1000001, 0, 1.0.44526, 0000000000000000000003EB, dds, 01404724, 21BD1D99F890218F0C0E358EA6A1A5AF, DA6FDD972D4F1BCC21C70F4FC610C51D001AF83ADA8C6909C9AE23643191464E

Since the above VT analysis implies version, the following is a Fosshub download URL for the mp3DirectCut v2.3.3.0 installer only and not the installed executable in question:

this file has been whitelisted. 

Suggest they turn off expert system algorithms. This is off by default. Its designed to catch zero day malformed files but sometimes packers malform them and cause fps. This is only to be turned on if there is an active infection that is cleaned up and want to scan to make sure there isnt any unknown zero days. Its assumed when you turn this on you can tell the difference between a fp and a legit detection.
