Today is April 14 but MalwareBytes Anti-malware v2.0.1.1004 reports the file C:\Program Files (x86)\Elaborate Byes\VirtualCloneDrive\VCDMount.exe as a Trojan.Zbot.FKV and places it in Quarantine.

Is this a false positive? The file's never changed since I installed it and has the following hash value: (SHA-256) 9cd3f17c2f323696ef3a9793ba0324fe15d501c7f368e1e545ed08171488a02b

Someone from this organization needs to report this to MalwareBytes or people will stop using the product.

First restore the file from the quarantine to its original place. Visit VirusTotal and upload your file and scan it. If there is a false positive about the file, the scanners will indicate the file is safe.

However, I have installed and scanned the file and it's safe to use. The detection ratio is 0/51. Use the online contact form to report this error to Malwarebytes developers.
