I scan this tool with several other AV products and it was not flagged.

You can download the software here as it's free if you need to look into this as a false positive: https://processhacker.sourceforge.io/downloads.php

The software is a low level product that is similar to TaskMgr only provides much more detail about a process, it's port usage, file I/O, and registry usage ... it's a VERY powerful tool that can be used to diagnose issues with executable and do allow direct memory access to applications (which is probably why it's being flagged).

MalwareBytes team input is important, so please let me know if you have the time to look into this.

Cheers, Rob.
