This detection is Malwarebytes’ generic detection name for files that are flagged by Malwarebytes’ Machine Learning module as 100% anomalous. You may also see lower percentages in your scan results. The percentage is used to show how big the deviation from the examined file is from the legitimate files in the training set. Where a percentage of 100% means they look completely dissimilar from our training set of legitimate files.
Malwarebytes detects these files to protect customers from zero-day malware.
If you recognize the detected file as legitimate, please let us know so we can whiltelist the file. If you are not sure, keep the file in quarantaine. When we receive a copy through our telemetry we will investigate and give it a detection name that tells you more about what it is exactly.
