RyzenAdj.exe detected as Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic false positive?


Recommended Posts

Hello there, 

Malwarebytes' Ransomware detection module just classified RyzenAdj.exe as a ransomware.

The file comes from RyzenController which is an application used to control temperatures and cpu profiles for AMD machines. 

I uploaded the file to virustotal over here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/cf21bacc7b49aa801965d397519b3862349350196fc3f12678d5381e578aeaff/details

VirusTotal says it's completely clean, but Malwarebytes classified it as a Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic infection and quarantined it.

I removed it from quarantine and ensured it wasn't added to the allowed list in Malwarebytes and subsequently ran a scan on the RyzenAdj.exe, and now it's not getting detected as a ransomware file. 

I'm attaching the detection log and RyzenAdj.exe file here as well. 
Is this a false positive that I can safely ignore?
