JimmXinu,

I will try what you suggest. I will also try to get the epubs posted somewhere. The original ebpubs were created using Chrome plugin ePubPress.

JimmXinu,

That worked. I converted the book from an epub to an epub.

Thanks

Malwarebytes flagging EpubMerge as ransomware

Hello,

I am running Windows 7 on a Dell computer.

I have Malwarebytes (Premium) version 3.1.2.

I just updated Calibre to the most recent version as of July 3, 2017 (11:20 PM, Pacific Time).

Then I went to Preferences-->Plugins in Calibre, and I tried to install the EpubMerge plugin. Malwarebytes flagged it as Ransomware, and put my Calibre.exe file in the Malwarebytes Quarantine. So, of course, Calibre does not open at all.

I know Calbre.exe is not malware, so I am removing Calibre.exe from the quarantine. But then I am uninstalling the EpubMerge plugin to be on the safe side.

I searched the forum for this issue, but did not see it. Apologies if somebody has already posted about it.

Sincerely,
dsinger66

I installed version 2.2.1 of Epubsplit this morning

On Calibre 32 bit version 3.2.1, on Windows 10 Pro version 1607, with MB Pro version: 3.1.2.1733/CP version: 1.0.141/UP 1.0.2287

Nothing from MB, Quarantine empty

Well, I certainly didn't put any ransomware in EpubMerge. The only changes from the previous version are the version number and updated translations.

So it is my opinion that you have a false positive from your malware detector. You should have a mechanism to be able to whitelist the file and (hopefully) report the false positive back to the software maker.

FYI, it's best to report issues with plugins in their respective threads. It was only chance that I happened to see this thread.

Last three posts merged, should have done it yesterday but I... er, couldn't be bothered

MB are pretty good with handling false positives. I've had two since this recent outbreak of ransomware hobgoblins, on both occasions they've gone within 24 hours.
