That is an FP but for MBAM team to fix the detection, you will need to zip and send the file by creating a post in their False Positive forums, including the log: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showforum=42
Their website only mentioned when they first detected a Malware Packer.gen: http://www.malwarebytes.org/malwarenet.php?name=Malware.Packer.Gen
But in my understanding, it's a generic detection by MBAM on a file that is packed (archived/compressed) but suspicious or acting as malware or similar.
They need to fix it but you have to send them a copy of the detected file.

I use a program called Paint Shop Pro which has various plugins one can use to enhance images.
Tonight I ran Malware Bytes and it found 2 "Malware Packer.gen" files. I googled this to see what it was and there were a lot of links, but in reading them, got more confused the more I read.
The scan did show where the files were and they were in one of the plugin folders for Paint Shop Pro. I have used these files for about 5 years now with nothing ever being found by Avast or Malware Bytes.
Now all of a sudden I had these files -- I did quarantine them first to do some research and finally did delete them.
Can someone explain to me in "laymen's" terms what a malware packer.gen is please?
