Fals positives


Recommended Posts

Hi there.

They really aren't false positives, please see this reply from one of the devs.

MBAM is aggressive against many typical malware install patterns and executable files in user root is one that we see so often that the heuristics here are very aggressive . User root is not a location anything other than folders should be . If you were to put a folder in your user root folder and then these same files in that folder we would not hit any of them as this is not typical malware activity . If this were me I would either make a folder called installers in user root or user docs to store these files .

I cant turn down heuristics and unprotect all of our users so that a very few people can store executables in very odd locations because this is exactly what the bad guys want me to do .
