Ransom.Cerber in mintty.exe

Recommended Posts

I believe I have a false-positive detection for Ransom.Cerber on mintty.exe.  The database update I have is v2016.12.28.04.  I have attached the file being detected in a zip file.

After searching this forum and other places, I can't find anyone else having this same problem.  So, I did a backup, set a restore point, and told Malwarebytes to ignore the file.  After running the program several times, I do not have any of the symptoms of ransomware.

Mintty is a Windows program that comes with Cygwin as a nicer console application than the Windows command prompt window.  It's mostly distributed through Cygwin's "setup-x86.exe" or "setup-x86_64.exe" from http://cygwin.com

Let me know if you need any additional information.  Thank you.
