ProcessHacker detection


Recommended Posts

  • Staff

We have seen an increase of Malware, especially Ransomware, installing ProcessHacker (mostly via BruteForce Attacks) in order to disable Antivirus and other Security applications, so they can install their malware.
That's why Malwarebytes (and many other Antivirus Companies) have decided to detect ProcessHacker as Riskware.

If you installed ProcessHacker willingly, then you can always add an exclusion for the path where ProcessHacker resides.
If you are not aware of this being installed, it's strongly recommended that you let Malwarebytes remove it.

In the future, if we see that ProcessHacker isn't being abused by Malware anymore, we will remove the detection again.
