Bandizip as Malware Ransom Agent generic


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I am using Bandizip for some years without any problems.  Updated now to the current  v 6.07.
Using Malwarebytes v. 3.06 (Premium) as well.
Suddenly (now  2 times) Malwarebytes  considers it as Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic  and quaranteed it immediately.
have  approached Bandisoft developer and confirmed that there is no malware!  must be a f/p.
and here follows the log file:---->

This is a false positive indeed where I believe this has been fixed already. However, I would like to have the Bandizip.exe file that it detected. So please unquarantine, then reboot and zip and attach this file here.

Also, it might be a good idea to add C:\Program Files\Bandizip\Bandizip.exe to your exclusions and update to our latest version of Malwarebytes as well:
