False positive for Syncplay detected by VirusTotal


Recommended Posts

Hi all, VirusTotal states that Malwarebytes is flagging both the Syncplay v1.7.0 installer and portable client as Malware.AI.3930599736. These are false positives and the files being flagged are attached.

I am a lead developer of Syncplay, which is a free open source media synchronisation tool built using GitHub Actions. GitHub release for Syncplay v1.7.0: https://github.com/Syncplay/syncplay/releases/tag/v1.7.0Syncplay_1.7.0_Portable.zip

Anything you can do to resolve these false positives would be greatly appreciated. I would also welcome any advice you have on how to prevent such false positives from recurring in the future.

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/
