Hi RipeRide, welcome to the forums.

Wow, nothing. It could be a false positive (FP). Verify the detection at CIMA and VirusTotal. If it is a FP, report it to Malwarebytes. You should really always do this for any detection.

HOWEVER, note that it’s in CIS’s Quarantine folder. It looks like CIS already did something with it. MBAM should not look in other security apps Quarantine folders and CIS should not look at MBAM either. Same goes for all security apps… they should trust each other.

edit: didn’t initially note the folder mentioned.
