Comodo detected this as possible malware, I think it is just a false positive.

Hey and Welcome to the forums! :slight_smile:

I would recommend you to sandbox it in case you don’t know that it’s surely a safe application. I have scanned it with malwarebits, comodo AV, hitman pro and this webscanner.

No malware was found so I would say that it’s a FP (false positive).

I have sent the file to comodo labs so they will check it out

I have attached hopefully a clean one (I have download it from

Thank you.

was it clean or did you get warning?

I have Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, Norton Power Eraser, CIS, I uploaded it to VirusTotal and CAMAS; all shown that it was clean, except CIS auto-quarantined it (I have it set to auto-quarantine, and I have the Heuristics set to High).

I downloaded it from the official website, so I think it is just a false positive.

If you’re going to run heuristics set to high, I wouldn’t recommend auto-quarantine as you are going to be getting a lot of false positives with the heuristics cranked up. I’d recommend leaving heuristics at the default low.

Hello thank you for the suggestion,

But, on every false positive that I have tested, CIS detected it even when set to low; so the heuristic setting has never matter in every case that I have tested.

I imagine it can be more likely to cause false positives for some but so far I have not had that problem really and even if I do, I know how to report the file to have it re-tested; that is what this section of the forum is for, so it will help the team deal with and prevent false positives in the future.

I use the quarantine option because I know I can un-quarantine it, if it turns out to be a false positive, so it is not a problem for me really.

I enjoy doing my part and helping alert the team to issues/problems/etc.

Thanks for commenting.

We are here to help each other :slight_smile:

Ooops, I uploaded the wrong file, the Portable version is what is being detected as possible malware, not this version.

I will create another report for that file, so this one can now be closed.
