False Positive - Boostspeed 8 by Auslogics


Recommended Posts

Auslogics Boostspeed 8 (BoostSpeed.exe) was identified as ransom-ware and quarantined during a scheduled temporary file scan.

I would like to point out that I had already registered it as an exclusion because it was flagged and quarantined during installation and Anti-Ransomware ignored the exclusion and quarantined it regardless.


System Specs (if relevant):

OS : Windows 10 64-bit

CPU : AMD Phenom II Hexcore 1055HT

Mobo : Sabertooth 990FX Gen2 R2.0

GPU : Nvidia GTX 780 x 2


Please let me know if there's any more info you need. Log files etc. are attached to post.

Hello Basstitan and :welcome:

Available data strongly suggests a false positive and, since the following pathname has been entered in MBARW GUI -> Exclusions, and the binary has been uploaded to the developers, please allow the entry to remain until you are requested to remove it:

                      C:\Program Files (x86)\Auslogics\BoostSpeed\BoostSpeed.exe

At any time, a MBARW 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.

Hi Basstitan. Thank you for your report and files. I see that you had added this file to exclusions before it was detected.

We have fixed an issue where MBARW could potentially trigger on an excluded process. We are hoping to release a new version of MBARW that should resolve this issue.
