atom editor git.exe flagged as generic malware

Recommended Posts

The atom editor version of git.exe is being flagged as Generic.Malware as of today. There was no update to my atom recently, so I'm assuming something changed in the heuristics. Here is the information Malwarebytes provides regarding the marking of this file.
