False Positive: "Environment Modules" generated by our update system


Recommended Posts

Our update system has a web service which generates so-called "Environment Modules". Their only purpose is to bundle a configuration INI file and pass it off to a utility that is already installed on the machine. Recently, these started being flagged as malware. See the following VirusTotal report:


According to VirusTotal, the MalwareBytes engine is detecting our generated Environment Module as "Malware.AI.1953650300".

It is my understanding that participants in VirusTotal are able to retrieve the sample directly from the VirusTotal database. If this is not the case for MalwareBytes, please let me know how I should supply a sample file.

Please update your engine so that this kind of file is not flagged as malware.
