  1. Did an update on Visual Studio and it quarantined the Andriod NDK installer. Attached are zips of the 2 directories. Unfortunately the installer is larger than the allowed file size. Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware.rar logs.rar
  2. Hi guys! We're getting a false positive on hxxp://www.voyageuroutfitting.com. It's a wordpress website that was hacked and has now been cleaned and sanitized. Would be possible perform a review ? Thanks!
  3. Hi guys, I had trouble during updating Office 2016 with any "Click-to run..."-file. MWB Anti-Ransomware was reporting, that the file would be go into quarantaine. But it is empty. BR, Kaim Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware.zip MBAMSERVICE - Kopie.zip
  4. We're getting a false positive on hxxp://homelandseptic.com. It's a wordpress website that was hacked and has now been cleaned and sanitized. Thanks!
  5. hi, just to let you know I received a pop up notice RANSOMWARE DETECTED along with the notice that 'anti-logger' was being quarantined however when I opened the main MBAR screen and went to quarantine nothing was shown, Zemana Anti-Logger was still running and was not moved anywhere (this would be a false positive) It has not detected anti-logger again for several days and they continue to run side by side - so curious how it would see anti-logger as ransomware one day and not see it again for many days - there are ZERO exclusions in my list I did not see any log files indicated in the MBAR app to try to see what may have happened as a side issue I have frequently found MBAR in 'not protected' 'your system is at risk' state even w/o a restart and only after I've opened the MBAR screen from the taskbar so no notice was given that it wasn't functional-no change in icon color in the system tray etc!! - I presume the service is stopping or something on it's own So far no conflicts or other issues that I can see after many days of use - hope the feed back is helpful
  6. Hello, i've installed malwarebytes anti-ransomware BETA and it detect CouchPotato.exe as a Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic, which is obviously not. Attached are the zip files resquested Regards. CouchPotato.zip Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware.zip MBAMSERVICE.zip
  7. So as many users know, today for a few hours Malwarebytes was throwing up several pop-ups about 'gstatic.com'. They say it has been fixed as in no pop-ups anymore. But what was it blocking? Some people have said it is a Google domain for serving static content like images etc. Yet some pages state it is a piece of malware that can redirect browser entries and create malicious pop-up ads. So I just wanted to know were the pop-ups about blocking the Google domain or blocking a legitimate piece of malware? Thanks
  8. Install the beta yesterday and today my greenshot got quorantine as soon as I press Print screen Greenshot Can't restore both due to they've been mark to Delete on Reboot.
  9. Hi, I'm new to the forum and a rookie that decided to join the beta test (likely a mistake). Quarantined crashplan at risk notification and am trying to restore the file. Instructions say to disable protection and then follow further steps. Am currently unable to 'stop protection'. Does this button actually work in MWBAR? Any suggestions? I believe I cannot restore the program until I can stop protection.
  10. Today my BleachBit install was flaged as malware. It's a rather old version (1.6) and has been on my pc since november 2014. If submitted the file to VirusTotal.com. The last scan (6 months ago) contained just a warning by TheHacker (Posible_Worm32). A new scan had it marked by Malwarebytes as "Trojan.Crypt.RV ": VirusTotal scan mbam_22-03-2016.txt bleachbit.rar
  11. My Win 10 calc program has been quarantined. I attempted to follow the directions for reporting false positives but get the message that it cannot be restored and to contact support.
  12. Just had a false positive from Anti-Ransomware Beta on C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Intel\XDK\bin\adb\adb.exe This is part of the Intel XDK software. Restored the quarantined file and added it to exclusions. First false positive since installing anti-ransomware a week or two ago. Have only been using the XDK for two days.
  13. I think this file fractals.scr is a false positive in MbAM v2.2.1.1043 (also in v2.2.0.1024). When scanned with VirusTotal only MbAM find this Adware.Kuaiba, in C:\Windows\System32\fractals.scr, , [9b04b3d6ecad74c29ece54053ec26e92], false positive fractals.scr..txt
  14. Hi Team, I am from Nielsen Netsight offshore support team. These are the binaries of our new release. We are submitting them proactively so as not to get interruption in application installation or running. Binaries are zipped into a single file.

  15. Been running the beta for a couple of weeks now with no issues (or reports). This morning I received a "Ransomeware Detected" message for OfficeClickToRun.exe. From what I have seen this is a process that Office 365 needs/uses. I do have Office 365 installed. It said the action completed was Moved to Quarantine, yet when I go look at the Quarantine, it is not there. Unsure if it actually did the action it reported.
  16. Every time the software (CCC One) receives an update, MalwareBytes Anti-Ransomware quarantines the program and we have to keep adding the updated .exe file to the exclusion list. CCCONE.zip logs.zip Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware.zip
  17. False positive on tane.exe (Trains: A New Era) (Steam version not the Auran digital download version) tane.zip Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware.zip MBAMService.zip
  18. I installed MBARW Windows 8.1, and how other real-time protection using Comodo Firewall and Avira, and I had the following problems: 1) During the MBAR installation, Comodo signals the MBAR_Setup.tmp file as if it were infected with the CloudScanner.Trojan.Gena2@1. 2) At every start, the protection is turned off, and I have to activate it manually. 3) MBARW detected the TheSecretSociety.exe (a game app) as ransomware, and has quarantined for 2 times, and because I think is a false positive, I tried to restore it, but MBARW tells me that the operation cannot be performed. Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware.zip logs.zip
  19. Each and every time I uninstall a program I get a pop in the bottom right from mb anti ransomeware. (On this occasion when i removed logitech set point) C:users\admin\appdata\local\temp\_iu14d2n.tmp C:users\admin\appdata\local\temp\~nsu.tmp\au_.exe
  20. Airytech SwitchOff version 3.4.1 (old version from 30 May 2011) is being detected, as of (at least) today, having Backdoor.Andromeda . You may download it yourself from http://www.airytec.com/files/ I believe this is a false positive. I however will update to the latest version of this software. Still, I wanted to report this. I already updated Anti-Malware's database to v2016.03.05.04 to be sure I had the latest. Logfile (in Dutch / NL): airytec switchoff.txt Executable: swoff.zip
  21. False positive: tar.exe from mingw/msys installation Detection is triggered when extracting a .tar.gz file (in my case openssl-1.0.1s.tar.gz) Logfiles are attached, as requested. Hope this helps improving Anti-Ransomware. Thanks a lot for this tool! MBAMSERVICE.zip Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware.zip tar.zip
  22. MBARW put Asphalt8_w8.exe in quarantine, and it was not possible to restore it, but after have reinstalled the app, I found that the MD5 of Asphalt8_w8.exe does not match to the quarantined file, it may have been infected, or MBARW modified the file? I attach also the original executable, and the quarantine files, for a possible confrontation. In the windows events it's reported that a few minutes before MBARW put Asphalt8_w8.exe in quarantine, there were errors with shadow copies (Event ID 12293 - Volume Shadow Copy Service Operations), also was running the quick scan planned of Avira, I don't know if these activities may have triggered the detection of the false positive.

  23. Hi there, I just wanted to share a false positive with you. Today, after using 4 days the Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta, it removed my Teamviewer installation (TeamViewer_Service.exe etc) . After I tried to install it, the installation aborted . Unfortuantely, I don't see any way to use Teamviewer again, other than removing or stopping your software. Hope this helps. Bests
  24. Today's database update (v2016.02.26.05) has blocked access to clickfunnels.com, as well as some of their subdomains. www.clickfunnels.com - static.clickfunnels.com - assets3.clickfunnels.com - appassets.clickfunnels.com - Those are the IP's and associated domains that I am seeing blocked as a "Malicious Website". Clickfunnels is a SaaS platform that provides customizable landing pages for people to sell things, register for trainings, give away information, etc...essentially a Sales Funnel. We use them for ourselves and about 30 clients of ours as the main landing page for a variety of products and services that we sell. We even have order form/payment pages on there too. I don't know why you have blocked them today, but you have essentially shut the doors to any new business for us. We've had to stop email campaigns, paid Facebook ads, etc that direct customers to a landing page built on clickfunnels. Please update your database asap!
  25. FPs on DVDStyler and Gpg4win: http://www.dvdstyler.org/en/& https://www.gpg4win.org/ Nothing appeared to be added to the quarantine list in the GUI, but notifications came up saying that ransomware was detected in the tray area. Since nothing was quarantined, I have no EXE for Gpg4win since that one happened a while ago and I don't remember what EXE it was, but I will attach the DVDStyler EXE that was flagged in the notification, since that happened today. The DVDStyler FP happened while building a DVD to be burned. I don't remember what I was doing when the Gpg4win FP occurred. Both installer packages were detected by 0 AVs on Virustotal before installing them, and they were downloaded from the sites listed above. Attached are the requested .zips from the FP reporting thread. Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware.zip MBAMService.zip DVDStyler.zip
