Old SFX archive of mine, false positive


Recommended Posts

This file is now triggering a false positive, as far as I can see via your heuristic settings.

This was reported to me by my webhost, and I'm attaching a link to the current VirusTotal report, showing your detection of Malware.Heuristic.1003



This file is a self-extracting archive, created with a much older WinRAR SFX library. This contains a train for BVE Trainsim / OpenBVE, which consists of a bunch of BMP & WAV files, along with a single C++ DLL I can supply the source for if you require. [Please note that this DLL / the source was built with Bloodshed DEV C++, and re-building it will be a massive pain in the backside due to the age of the build tool setup, which I haven't touched in nearly as long]

The icon isn't the best with 20-odd years of hindsight.

Staff will chime in as well but FYI

The attached file is not detected by the consumer or commercial versions of Malwarebytes.

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.
