MalwareBytes files detected as suspicious

Latest Comodo AV database 14891 detects MalwareBytes’s AntiMalware program subfolder (Chameleon) as suspicious. See attached photos. I did scan the folder with emsisoft emergency kit (with the latest updates) and it found nothing, so it probably is false positive. Please fix the database. Thanks

Srinivasan.G, I can confirm that with the latest update (14899) the false positive detection has been fixed. Thank you.

Siketa, where did you download that version number (1.71) from? Usually the program updates itself automatically whenever there is a program update available, and most of the sites still have as latest version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

Indeed, even Malwarebytes’ official website directs you to a download of 1.70 (at
Rather strange.

Edit: Siketa, are you sure you have 1.71? If you google it, you can only see one website offering it for download, and it is a rather questionable one with a ‘suspicious’ rating by zulu.scaler.

Sorry, guys…my bad.
Latest version is really 1.70.
