Malwarebytes is detecting a Ransom.Script.RTPScript.

Go to solution Solved by Porthos,

Recommended Posts


I decided to do a scan of my computer with Malwarebytes today. It detected a file as Ransom.Script.RTPScript. By the way, this file was a batch file renamed to .txt. 

What's weird is that Malwarebytes detects it when you do a full scan, but not when you scan the file itself. I will attach a screenshot below.

Please get back to me as soon as possible. 

Thanks in advance,

Hello @JP3SpinoFan and :welcome::

While you are waiting for the next qualified/approved malware removal expert helper to weigh in on your topic, and even though you may have run the following Malwarebytes utility, or its subsets, please carefully follow these instructions:

  1. Download the Malwarebytes Support Tool.
  2. In your Downloads folder, open the mb-support-x.x.x.xxx.exe file.
  3. In the User Account Control (UAC) pop-up window, click Yes to continue the installation.
  4. Run the MBST Support Tool.
  5. In the left navigation pane of the Malwarebytes Support Tool, click Advanced.
  6. In the Advanced Options, click only Gather Logs. A status diagram displays the tool is Getting logs from your computer.
  7. A zip file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to the Public desktop, please attach that file in your next reply to this topic. Please do NOT copy and paste.

For the short time between when you post the diagnostic logs, and when your helper weighs in, please take no further self-directed remedial actions that will invalidate the diagnostic logs you will have sent.

Thank you.

Are you looking for assistance cleaning your computer or are you just pointing out the difference with detection?

Do a new scan with Malwarebytes for Windows.

If prompted to do a Restart, just please follow all directions.

Let me know how that goes.    Next, the Malwarebytes sca

Next, click the small x on the Settings line to go to the main Malwarebytes Window.   Next click the blue button marked Scan.
