MB3 Flagging Ruby.exe as ransomware


Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes 3 is flagging Ruby as ransomware, removing the executable, and as I'm just discovering there is nowhere to recover a file that has been deleted when detected as ransomware.  Its pretty annoying because I would like to keep my ransomware protection enabled.  Are there any plans to allow exceptions to be added for these ransomware detections since false positives are in the wild - The same way regular detections can be excluded? Or is https://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/ spreading ransomware?

BTW its the top link that was tested.

We would like to have more info as we can't reproduce detection.

Can you zip and attach the EXACT file that Malwarebytes detected as ransomware?

Also, in order to get additional info..

Download MB-Check and save to your desktop: https://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mb3_check
Double-click to run MB-Check and within a few second the command window will open, then click "OK"
This will produce one log file on your desktop: mb-check-results.zip
Attach this file to your forum post by clicking on the "Drag files here to attach, or choose files..." or simply drag the file to the attachment area
