False Positive - dbf reindexing


Recommended Posts


This is a vb6 program that has an option to reindex DBF files thus creating, at least, one CDX file for each DBF it processes.

I think it must be classifying this behaviour as strange because, while using the same program  for other tasks, it doesn't complain.

Also, when I detected this, I added it to the exclusions but it's still being detected as ransomware and, when detected, it forcibly exits the program and says it's being moved to quarantine but when I check, the file is not there. Furthermore, the process keeps running in the background.

Hello papi and :welcome:

Available data does suggest a false positive and, if it has not already been done, you may wish to make the following temporary full pathname file entry in MBARW GUI Dashboard -> Exclusions:


At any time, a development team member, QA team member or staffer may request the above temporary exclusion be altered/removed.

Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your valuable feedback.
