The below is the exchange I have had with a member of the Handbrake team, please would you check the dmg that can be downloaded from 



Many thanks , Simon


This is a false positive.  I would suggest submitting the file up to MalwayBytes for them to re-run their analysis.

I have downloaded Handbrake from your website using this link: 
Upon installation the app is quarantined (so no harm done!) by Malwarebytes because it is infected with the OSX.Proton trojan. Please would you let me know if and when a 'clean' version of the app will be available? 
Many thanks
