Malwarebytes detecting Sophos as malware?

Recommended Posts

We have Sophos home free antivirus and Malwarebytes free on all of our computers, after a recent update to Sophos definitions Malwarebytes picks up the update and flags it as malware with a string of numbers. I've heard chatter and other forums that Sophos is not trustworthy. Is this an anomaly or what is going on?

Good morning, BW.  I noticed the same thing over the weekend. 

Regarding the trustworthiness of Sophos, CNET published an article last week ("The best antivirus software for 2021") that lists Sophos as a "Worthwhile subscription alternative" for the "Windows plus MacOS" platforms. 

Also, Sophos is the recommended antivirus software by the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD).  The MCCCD serves the fourth-largest county in the United States (Maricopa County, AZ) and had an enrollment of over 97,000 students during the Fall 2020 semester.
