False Positive - GedSite

Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes detected GedSite.exe as a Ransomeware threat and disabled it in such a way that Windows uninstall, although it runs, leaves the folder and .exe file behind. I cannot remove the file before re-installation of GedSite (which is an entirely innocent genealogy program). Although I am Administrator on the machine, it seem I lack the powers of the almighty needed to delete the program's folder, or the file within it. I have got round this by renaming the old folder (apparently I am sufficiently powerful for that), adding the program to the exclusions list and then re-installing GedSite.

 

So now the drama shold be over, but why on earth did it occur?

 

Log attached.

Can you please zip and attach this file here?

 

GedSite.exe

 

If you shutdown malwarebytes in this situation the lock would be released on the file.

If you are telling the author we strongly recommend digitally signing the files. This goes a long way with av heuristics in general to prevent fps with us and other companies.
