False Positive for my Open-Source project

Hello there, 
I received a complaint about a false-positive (MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%) from a user uploading the latest release to virustotal (https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/6ff740a97affeead5ea72912706e471149722c8a4f14aa8073b47d861d2165c7/detection).

GitHub-Repository of my project: https://github.com/MaikEight/ExaltAccountManager

You can either check the "ExaltAccountManager_V3_0_0.zip" file I attached here or get the latest release from the github-page.

I sadly can't attach a log or screenshot other than the virustotal link here, as I am not using malewarebytes myself.

Thank you for your time and help in advance!

Best regards,

Maik Kühne aka Maik8

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.
