Malwarebytes scan


Running Beta version of Atom (1.27.0-beta1 x64) on Windows 10 version 1803.
This morning Malwarebytes reports squirrel.exe as malware. Name: MachineLearning/Anomalous.97% (whatever that means…)
Location: C:\Users<user>\Appdata\local\atom\app-1.27.0-beta1\squirrel.exe

False positive?


False positives happen all the time, so rather than relying on one antivirus solution, I’d cross-check against Virus Total to get a better impression.
