MBAM Premium 18.104.22.1687 last night quarantined an old version of Adobe Lightroom 1.4 (that I have used for years) as I was using Lightroom to catalog photos. MBAM identified lightroom.exe and two Win 7 desktop links to lightroom.exe as Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic. Lightroom is indeed inaccessible now from the Windows Start Button as lightroom.exe is missing from its folder tree under C:\Program Files (x86).
Could someone please tell me if ransomeware is capable of imbedding itself into a Windows application executable file (from Adobe)? If not, I will know that I can safely restore the quarantined executable file and chalk off the occurrence as a false positive. If ransomeware IS capable of embedding itself into a Windows application executable, not sure what to do.
Please help! And thanks,
