In recent days I've had a couple of false positives involving software where encryption is an option.

The latest is the Usenet Newreader  ...NewRover v 25 (newsrover.exe was sent to quarantine)

I cant remember the first case as I immediately rejected the advice and no system restart had been demanded.

Hi Nippa,

Sorry for the delay.

Can you zip and attach the newsrover.exe file that was detected?

Please unquarantine the file first, then reboot.

Thanks!

NewsRover.zip

Thanks for the reply

I've used versions of S&H's  NewsRover for the last 14 years so I had full confidence that this latest version was safe having updated from the developer's website.

I unquarantined immediately expecting Bitdefender to flag up any real problem and I've continued to use NewsRover without concern.

IIRC the other false report was Simple File Encryptor which is from Sourceforge.

Hi,

Thanks for this.

I reviewed and verified this is a false positive indeed (behavior ransomware detection), but this has been fixed already, so it should no longer be detected anymore.
