[ RESOLVED ] Non-matching detections

I own Malwarebytes Premium (Windows10).
During a scan with the programme, an exe file was sent to quarantine that allegedly contained the virus Floxif.Virus.Fileinfector.DDS.
I have been using Malwarebytes Premium for a long time. The exe file has not been reinstalled or updated recently. Despite this, the file has never been recognised as malicious by Malwarebytes.
But even worse:
I had the file restored from quarantine and had it scanned again with Malwarebytes (using the right mouse button).
Result: No malicious malware/virus detected.

I then scanned the file again with VirusTotal:
Result: Only BkavPro was the only one of 70 scanners to detect malware, but not the variant detected by Malwarebytes but W64.AIDetectMalware

How can it be that the Malwarebytes programme first sends a file to quarantine and the same file is detected as harmless with the same programme?
