Android Studio 3.5 detected as ransomware

Recommended Posts

I was using Android Studio on a Windows 10 PC to create a Wearos watch face.  I would update the code, run it in an emulator, change the code, run it again, etc.  After about 10 updates Malwarebytes told me it had blocked ransomwear.  Android Studio then gave me an error saying the gradle daemon had been stopped.  I could not compile any more programs until I had rebooted.  This has happened twice so far.  It never happened with previous versions of Android Studio.

Can you provide the file being detected? Also, in case it happens again, you can create an exclusion for the folder to prevent this from happening.

The file being pointed to, C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\jre\bin\java.exe, is an exe file and this system does not allow me to attach them.

Sorry for the late reply. The file attached has been whitelisted. Are you still seeing the detection after adding the exclusion? If you are, I'll need additional logs.
