Bitdefender: flags x1outlookprovider32.dll for ransomeware?

Postby nex » Tue Apr 04, 2017 12:16 pm

Hi all,

Just a minute ago, my Bitdefender is suddenly screaming "Ransomeware!" in one of the Outlook plugins (x1outlookprovider32.dll).
I suppose this would be a false positive.... BUT... I cannot tell any way how to check on that.

It doesn't sound nice at least.
When looking at the Properties of the .dll file, more specifically the certificate details, I see nothing wrong, at plain sight at least:

Finally, VirusTotal is not showing any bad results (just a few inconclusive):

Is anyone experiencing the same problem?
What should I now do, or how can I make SURE that this is a false positive indeed ?


Thanks in advance for your help!

Yes. Incompetent writers of AV software.

You can sometimes see virus alerts related to X1's handling of email. For example, if X1 is set to download attachments or to work on emails in a cache.

But if it warns that an X1 program component is ransomware you might do better to report it to the AV writers and tell them to get their act together.

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.
