Nexus.exe flagged as ransomware (again)

Recommended Posts

This morning MBAM removed nexus.exe from my system.  When I searched I found that the same thing happened to nexus.exe back in April 2017.  It's Back!!

Strangely after re-booting it is no longer being identified as ransomware.  When the ransomware was flagged, my steam client was downloading a large update.  Not sure if that could be related or not, but it seems ok now.

I have tried attaching the file as both a ZIP and RAR file, size around 10MB, but after the uploading progress bar reaches 100% I get an error every time that reads:

There was a problem processing the uploaded file. -200

Ok, thanks for letting me know. I'm not sure about the upload error, that could be due to some type of forum maintenance or limitation on file size.

If the detection occurs again, try attaching this log file: C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\logs\MBAMSERVICE.LOG

Sorry for the inconvenience with the detection earlier.
