Mass Effect 3 Quarantined as Ransomware

Recommended Posts

I just launched the Origin game Mass Effect 3 and MWB quarantined it as ransomware, wondering if this is a false positive. I have played it quite a bit and it has been on my computer for months.

I believe this was fixed already (as this was an FP). Please unquarantine and check if it's still detected. If it is, please zip and attach the D:\Origin\Mass Effect 3\Binaries\Win32\MassEffect3.exe file.
