Probably FP in Total Commander on VT


Recommended Posts


MB scan engine on VirusTotal probably shows a false positive ("Malware.Heuristic.1004") for Total Commander; every other virus scan engine comes out clean:


I've zipped and attached it below. The file is from here: https://totalcommander.ch/win/fixed/tcmd1050x64.exe (link to the 64bit version is on the original developer's site here: https://www.ghisler.com/ddownload.htm)

Could you check what's wrong with the file (or with your detection)?

Kind regards

Thanks, but now it's almost a week, and is still there. Or is it no FP?

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.
