Generated files recognized as malware at runtime, the name of the recognition is different each time

Hello fellow colleagues

My problem: In the program PureBasic generated files are recognized as malware at runtime (e.g. GenericRXFA-WG! 172451DAA1C8)
the name of the recognition is different each time.

My question is> what does a Threat Prevention scan exception have to look like so it doesn't happen again?

Thanks a lot for your input

Hello @GGsxpUGy5xWec ,

Thank you for writing in, Based on the detection name, the detection seems to be based on Generic detection "GenericRXFA-WG! 172451DAA1C8". 

I would suggest logging a Service request claiming for false-positive if you do feel the detection is incorrect, sop that we shall escalate the concern to the McAfee Labs to analyze the same and revert back if we would need to suppress the detection or the suggestion on excluding if deems that the detection is accurate.

Please refer: and please share the details documented under "Suspected false positive" and the concerned team would assist you further.
