Datto RMM Agent Process False Positive


Recommended Posts

We have marked the software and corresponding folder as not malicious inside Malwarebytes, but it is still flagging as a false positive three weeks later.  

What solutions are available?

"The Datto RMM Agent Process (AEMAgent.exe) is a child process of the main Datto RMM Agent Service (CagService) and is dedicated solely to performing endpoint"

You can find Scan and Protection logs within the Malwarebytes 4 program in the following location




RTP stands for Real-Time Protection and is where automatic protection operations would normally be logged




If you click on the View option you should get something similar to the following with other options available.






Thank you

@slabar This is a known issue with exploit protection. The current beta fixes this.

Open Malwarebytes and go to Settings by clicking the small gear icon and go to the General tab, scroll down and enable Beta updates 

You may need to wait up to about 5 minutes or so, but then check for updates on that same General tab or the About tab and let it update to the latest Beta version

Once it has updated, RESTART the computer again and let us know if you're still having an exploit block

Please report back with an update.
