DAO False Positive??


Recommended Posts

I really did not see where to submit this.  Sorry if incorrect place.

MBAMAntiRansome quarantined the following file - DAO.20852700.exe

Located C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\NVidia\NvBackend\Packages\00008d52\DAO.20852700.exe

I do not believe it is Ransomeware.  I see no activity to indicate so.

Please have a look at it.

Thank you

Hello Tony4554:

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:


Reference: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/FC6D29AA6683BCA611478D6C0A866EA41E1F76E643586FC79C217A4E8AF706E8/analysis/ Signed

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

Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your valuable feedback.

Hi Tony4554. Thank you for your report. This was reported by another community member just before you did. This issue should be resolved.



This file should no longer be detected. If you've added DAO.20852700.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.

Thank you!
