If you can't do anything about the detecdtion I suggest none of my tools will be used on Malwarebytes forum (that includes Farbar Service Scanner and Farbar Recovery Scan Tool or any other tool). I will make an anouncemt on BleepingComputer about this and add a message to the tools in order not to run on any system if Malwarebyte detected on the system.
Malwarebytes can't reverse a detection for something that is not presently being detected. It is that simple.
Many legitimate tools get falsely identified.
sUBs is a Malwarebytes' employee and HIS
ComboFix is falsely detected.https://www.virustot...85e1e/analysis/
OldTimer's OTL has False Detections.
Anti malware software can't whitelist a file just by name. As I wrote earlier, any file can be named anything and often is the case where a file with malicious intent will be named using a legitimate file name to mask its malicious intent.
If an AM/AV/AT utility falsely identifies a utility, the objective is to submit that file which is falsely identified to the AM/AV/AT vendor such that the signature can be negated. However a new version could subsequently be re-detected.
I also want to reiterate. You posted "Malwarebytes is going after legit tools
" when in reality it was maybe the case of one tool, not plural as in "tools" as the post suggests.
