Malware.Heuristic.1001 on VirusTotal in a popular Multiboot USB Creator


Recommended Posts


there may be a false positiv on the popular Multiboot USB Creator YUMI exFAT from pendrivelinux.com.

Its Open Source and downloaded from the original site and also from heise.de-download (which is virus-tested).

virustotal.com detects this as "Malware.Heuristic.1001".

Please prove and validate my assumption.

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.
