False Positive: Personal Backup


Recommended Posts


i'm using Personal Backup, a very helpful and free backup tool.

Since the new Beta Release update this program is reported as malware - but this is wrong!

Adding the .exe-file to the exclusions does not work! It is found and quarantined all the time - even when marked as exception...!

Please see the attached files!

Thanks a lot!

Hello Achim and :welcome:

Reference: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/f2aa0d200991eca206fbe62d97a95f0ffbed0e35a4533b494177b444c0c6e227/analysis/1459858745/ Unsigned

It is understood that an exclusion for the false positive file at C:\Program Files\Personal Backup 5\Persbackup.exe is ignored.

The MBARW developer team are aware of these issues and are working on the solutions.

Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your valuable feedback.
