I am a new user of Malwarebyte and need some guidance. I searched for an answer in the forum but was unable to find anything.

I just downloaded and installed the Nir launcher Suite of utilities. This is a respected suite of software to my knowledge which was recommended by an excelent newsletter. Malwarebyte identifies 3 items as malware: 1) HackTool.Asterisk 2) Hacktools.Dialupass and 3) Password . tool. Where can I find out if these or any future warnings are false positives?

Welcome Ken Term -

This Area is for adding false positives - Please read the directions prior to posting -

Also first read about the IP Module HERE- It shows how to allow blocked sites -

How can I add an IP so it won't be detected and can access a site I need to?

Visit the site and incur an IP block. Then right-click on the Malwarebytes system-tray icon after the block notification appears, and choose Add to Ignore List.

The 1/2/3/ items you list all seem to be 'bad' sites - Only allow these sites at your own risk - We do not agree with those sites -

Thank You -

These are not false positives. While Nir Sofer's tools are excellent and very useful, in the wrong hands they can be used to compromise a system and get personal data, that's why Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware detects them as Hacktools and Password tools, because that's what they are. As long as you are the one who loaded them on your system for your own use then it's perfectly safe to have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware ignore them, we detect them in case they were bundled along wtih malware to be used against your system for sinister purposes.
