Bitdefender Total Security 2018 flagged Malwarebytes files

Recommended Posts

When I sat down at my computer today, Bitdefender alerted me to 57 infected files, all of them Malwarebytes files. I am attaching a screen shot with one of the alerts expanded to read where it says the problem is.  Pretty much the other 56 alerts read the same.  Does anyone know anything about this?  I hadn't done anything risky with my computer, it's a Windows 7 model and I usually just use it for my crafting and sewing programs. How can I find out if these are legitimate warnings or not?

Thanks for your time!!

Hello kafm73,

These are not actually Malwarebytes files that are being detected, rather these are files on your machine that our cloud component has detected and is analyzing to determine whether or not it (or they) are malicious

Please add our C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes folder to Bitdefender's exclusion list
