False Positive: MediaPortal.exe


Recommended Posts



installed this on 5 Win10x64 and a Windows Home Server 2011 machine, very nice work. Never had ransomware so far, but if I had, I hope virus scanners plus this tool would help before any real harm can be done...


However, I have a false positive on one of my machines so far which is running as a HTPC: MediaPortal.exe (V1.13), obtained from www.team-mediaportal.de


And the tool then said it was moved to quarantine, but it obviously was not (quarantine was empty). Added it to the exceptions list, now everything works perfectly again. Keep up the good work!

Hello RequiemMG and :welcome:
1.) Per https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/178457-mbarw-on-file-server/#entry1018081
MBARW is in its Beta-testing phase. That means we do not recommend installing it on any work-related machine as the results may be unpredictable. Especially on Windows Servers, which are not supported.
2.) Please carefully read the locked and pinned topic in this sub-forum, How to report a False Positive and for developer analysis, kindly attach the requested files to your next reply in this thread.


Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your valued feedback.
