Xpadder flagged with MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%

Post by possom2009 »

Latest version (2021-05-01) is being reported as malicious by Malwarebytes. Specifically flagged with MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%. Anyone know why? This version has been out for awhile so it should have been resolved.

Here's a Virustotal scan:

Hello, I don't know which Anti Virus software you're using. But that is definitely a false positive. If you're using windows Defender, then you can go to the Manage Settings/Exclusions...Add or Remove Exclusions, Locate the file by browsing e.g. if on your desktop...then add Xpadder as an Exclusion.
Better yet you can run Xpadder as Administrator privileges and you should not have any issues.
If you using other Anti Virus then go to options where you can allow Xpadder to run.

This is due to the new version still gaining reputation. It happens each time I release a new version. False positives slowly disappear over time.
