Some months ago[^], I wrote a small application that can perform limited editing (to my needs and specifications) to PDF files.

Version 1.0 is ready and I've run and used it on several occasions without trouble.

Suddenly, yesterday, Malwarebytes decided that it was a backdoor bot and insists on blocking it! A program I've written myself that I KNOW for certain doesn't contain malware?!?!?!? Mad | :mad:

Well, I though, not to worry, I'll just tell Malwarebytes to ignore it! YEAH, RIGHT! Malwarebytes doesn't have such a feature! At least not one that works.

You can restore items from quarantine, but you cannot whitelist them. So next time you start the program again, it's quarantined again! Mad | :mad:

At last I found out how to whitelist the exe file, and I can start it. But when Malwarebytes is scanning my system, it STILL insists that it has detected a threat! Mad | :mad:

I wonder what the heck it is that triggers it? There are no keyboard or system hooks in the program. That can normally set it off, but not here.

At first I thought it was because I keep the source code on Dropbox (cheap hosting Laugh | :laugh: ) and launched the exe from there. But I have also installed it on the computer using a proper MSI installer, and that instance behaved exactly the same! Sigh | :sigh:

I'm using 3rd party code, primarily Ghostscript and iText 7 (former iTextSharp), but they should be safe in my opinion, seeing that they are so widely used, and not likely to contain malware.

Sigh | :sigh: Sigh | :sigh: Sigh | :sigh:
