4.2.2 "determined to exhibit ransomware characteristics"

Post by dtronvig » Tue Mar 24, 2020 9:28 pm

Immediately after downloading the latest qbittorrent, CyberSight RansomStopper 3.1.1 reports:

"qbittorrent_4.2.2_x64_setup.exe has been determined to exhibit ransomware characteristics. The file has been quarantined."

I've been using RansomStopper for a couple years, and have downloaded a few previous versions of qbittorrent during that time without RansomStopper reporting any problem. Has anybody else seen any flags raised by this new version?

"CyberSight RansomStopper 3.1.1"

Jesus... stop using junkware... seriously, this is the best advice I can give you.

- Windows 10 in-built antivirus
- ESET Nod32
- Bitdefender

Some good few products.

Here you can check tests, reviews, etc.
