MBARW beta6; build - McAfee mcinst.exe Identified as Ransomware

Recommended Posts

A MBARW popup has occurred twice stating ransomware detected and that the McAfee file, mcInst.exe was moved to quarantine (see attached).  Both times after the alert when I went to the quarantine tab in MBARW, there is no file is shown in quarantine.  I tried to locate the file in the system but am unable to locate the folder.

Hello betsar:

Even though the McAfee executable may not be easily found, please include what you can in your next reply.

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 3 requested .zip archives to your next reply in this thread.

If an exclusion has not already been entered, a temporary exclusion entry might then be made available to prevent a re-occurrence for your individual system.  Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your feedback.
