*** FALSE POSITIVE *** Ransomware Webbuilder

Post by Praxandros » Sun Feb 11, 2018 9:51 pm

Pablo,
While I was working on website, Webbuilder closed and I got a message from Malwarebytes software that Webbuilder.exe has been guarantined as Ransomware.

I was using the latest version 12.4

Do you know what I have to do now?

Please check the file and test that.

If it is infected on your side, replace it and let me know.

-Ransomware Details-
File: 1
Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic, C:\Program Files (x86)\WYSIWYG Web Builder 12\WebBuilder.exe, Quarantined, [0], [392685],0.0.0


Regards
Constantinos

There is no viruses or ransomware at all in the program this is a false positive from Malwarebytes to resolve you will need to add the program to Malwarebytes as safe to use. You can test the program at the following:

There is no ransomware, virus or any other malware in WYSIWYG Web Builder!

This is a major bug in your anti-virus software.

Please contact the makers of the antivirus and demand a reliable update or add the application to the exception list.
