7zip reported als malware on Virustotal.com - false positive ?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 
7zip is a often used packer , but now marked as "positive" by the malwarebytes engine on virustotal. customers are allways insecure about the situation. 

Could you please check or explain the situation ? 


thanks in advance 

Best regards. Christian

I can't reproduce detection when I scan the file locally. So this means that this has been resolved/whitelisted already, so any user running Malwarebytes won't get a detection for this file.
In case you're verifying detection via Virustotal only, please see here: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/288906-virustotal-only-detections-not-detected-in-desktop-product/
