Software incorrectly flagged as false positive

Copper Contributor

Hi I’m writing this to request assistance with a recent issue we encountered involving Windows Defender. Our software was incorrectly flagged as a false positive. We then quickly uploaded it to false positive submission portal  https://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/Submission/Submit.aspx, our primary concern is the timing of the incident, our application got blocked during a critical period for our customers.

To avoid any such disruptions in the future, we would like to engage in a proactive manner of white listing our EV signed application binaries beforehand, so that they are marked safe.

So, I request please share the link to White listing portal for the Windows defender, if such a portal is not available can I continue uploading our binaries to the false positive submission portal even if it’s not flagged?

Thank you for your answers in advance

If the app is signed then uploading the hash in IoC under file hashes may just work for you.
