Malwarebytes just detected the installer for PuTTY in c:\windows\installers as malware. I've quarantined the file.

How can I get it (and the log) out of quarantine and to you to check for a false positive? 

Thanks!

Hi,

This is indeed a false positive by our additional machinelearning engine we have implemented.
This will get fixed.

Thanks for reporting!

It is still flagging putty.exe here today. I has not done so in the past with me.
