Windows Defender False Positives RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello , 

    Im having a problem with Windows Defender Flagging my executable as a Trojan.

    Long story short is that i've been developing for more than 9 years now on a project ,never had any problems with false positives what so ever .

    Recently i started using "Themida" to protect my application ( Its a gaming client and reverse engineers are bypassing the ban system and the anticheat system because they can basically read the code) , I submit the application to Microsoft about an hour later the executable gets "Clean" and is no longer detected as a thread ( Huge thanks to microsoft ,other AV take days to even answer) . The actual Problem is that i have to repeat this process EVERY time i protect the executable with themida.

    I compile , Protect , Sign >>> GET flagged >>> Submit on microsoft website >>> Flag gets removed ( This process is repeated every single time i compile, even if i dont even make code changes , the second i hit protect from themida i basically know Windows defender is gonna flag me again)
