Is This a False Positive?


Recommended Posts

I was downloading something from a site I've never had issues with. I've had a few false positives and could use some insights.

Could you please zip up the file and attach it for us here? I suspect it is an FP but need the file to know for sure (alternatively, upload the file to www.virustotal.com and share the link to the results with us. 

Thank you,

So, it looks like you're installing a cracked version of the game. We can't stop you from doing that, but cracks are inherently risky to use. If you want to use it, you can add it to your ignore list in Malwarebytes, but we're not liable if you install malware because you ignored our warning.

All best,
