Possible False Positive: IntelliJ IDEA


Recommended Posts

I wanted to work with java today, so I opened IntelliJ IDEA 2016.1. I saw it pop up for a moment and then malwarebytes anti-ransomware blocked it. It was from a legitimate source and I have been able to use it before without noticing anything, so I think it is a false positive. I have attached a zip file with the files that you need.

Hi CaesarXL.

Thanks for your report. This file should no longer be detected. As you've added idea.exe to the exclusions in Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware BETA, please do remove from exclusions and let us know if the issue returns. It should not.

Please also note, we just released a new Beta version. You may want to install this new version. See this topic for download link and details:

Thank you for your participation!
