Beyond Compare 4 False Positive


Recommended Posts

Several of our mutual customers have reported Malwarebytes Premium detecting Beyond Compare 4.2's executable "c:\program files\beyond compare 4\bcompare.exe" as Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic. I tested a trial version of Malwarebytes on a Windows 10 virtual machine but I've been unable to duplicate the false positive.

I've attached a screenshot of the false positive sent to me by one of our mutual customers.

The customer reported the false positive didn't trigger during software installation, but afterwards while copying or moving files using Beyond Compare.

If you'd like to evaluate Beyond Compare on a test system, the download page is: http://www.scootersoftware.com/download.php

The direct link to the version of the software reported by our mutual customer is: http://www.scootersoftware.com/BCompare-4.2.0.22302.exe

I'll monitor this forum thread, but you're also welcome to contact us by email at support@scootersoftware.com.
