We have seen an increase of Malware, especially Ransomware, installing ProcessHacker, HRSWord and Sysdiag (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 these as Riskware or HackTools.

If you installed these programs/tools willingly, then you can always add an exclusion for the path where these tools reside.
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 these programs aren't being abused by Malware anymore, we will remove the detection again.
