but the file is false positive also on https://www.virustotal.com

The engine format and configuration in VirusTotal is different than the consumer and corporate products’ default configuration. In VirusTotal Malwarebytes uses 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.

This will eventually fix itself in Virustotal as well, as Malwarebytes has no control over this. Virus Total is having trouble reaching Malwarebytes cloud.

Thank you for the quick response, Porthos.

I think when Malwarebytes is the only one of all the security vendors on VirusTotal who detects this file as malicious all the time, there is something wrong and Malwarebytes itself should take steps to resolve this issue. All the other vendors solve similar issues themselves.

Thanks, I completely understood what you said. However, the fact that other security vendors solve similar issues in a few hours still applies. Someone should contact VirusTotal or upgrade the service that he provides.

This was a "false positive" report, next step is on Malwarebytes.

I have whitelisted the files above. Virustotal may not reflect this for a while. We can whitelist files for heuristics immediatly as its cloud based but this post was missed accidently so i apologize. 

 

Also one big issue with them is they don't digitally sign their files like Chrome does. If they signed their files we could whitelist every file by them.
