Visual Studio Detections


Recommended Posts

Hello, I've started to create a project on Visual Studio and I've began to now get detections from malwarebytes of 3 malware types on my project.exe files both in the obj and bin folders (where the execute file is located) when I quarnteen and delete the files the malware detection goes however when I run the program and it creates the file the malware is detected as it says my files are locked and being used by another process. When I delete the execute files from my directory it then works again however, it's very strange because I do a whole computer scan and there is no error (most of the time) I then scan the folder of where my project is located and then it detects the 3 types of malware again. I believe it's a false positive because I created this project and I wouldn't intend to put malware on it. When I moved the execute file to desktop windows defender detected trojan and malware didn't. If you can, I'll attach the execute file and you can test it to see if it's false or real. I haven't put it under "allow list" yet because id rather not have malware on my computer.

Yes please and also include the logs showing the detections.

You can find Scan and Protection logs within the Malwarebytes 4 program in the following location




RTP stands for Real-Time Protection and is where automatic protection operations would normally be logged




If you click on the View option you should get something similar to the following with other options available.






Thank you

Here I have attached the files from malwarebytes and the 2 files which are being detected as malware. 

I have got the history of all the detections from the project including all 3 types as the ones listed only show 2, I will send them to you in the morning.
