nvidia update installer file being flagged as Malware.ransom.agent


Recommended Posts



I want to report a file being detected as Malware.ransom.agent.

from what I observed it looks like a heuristic I highly suspect it has todo with the certificate on this executable.


the path of this executable was in:

C:\Users\<my username>\AppData\Local\NVIDIA\NvBackend\Packages\0000a06a


perhaps it is relevant to note that I got alot of false positives with malwarebytes premium lately but it seems it helped when I used mbam removal tool and reinstalled malwarebytes 3.0.

this file still  seem to be affected by a heuristic.


my mbam version is:

my componement version is: 1.0.103

the database version is: 1.0.1829


the false positive is added into the attachments including with the report.
