Bitdefender Ransomware Positive Detection, hopefully "False" #9675
qBittorrent version and Operating System
qBittorrent version v4.1.3
What is the problem
Bitdefender Ransomware Module is currently yielding a positive detection to certain actions in qBittorrent. It does not detect ransomware behavior when I use uTorrent 2.2.1. In my examples, it has always been a false positive, but I am wondering if there is a possible security hole here.
What is the expected behavior
qBittorrent is halted by the Ransomware detection module, and must be restarted until another positive detection halts qBittorrent.
Steps to reproduce
Any one of three separate actions seem to cause the ransomware module to halt qBittorrent. There are possible other actions which also cause it.
Extra info(if any)
This is not urgent, since I can exclude qBittorrent from the Ransomware Detection module, but my concern is a possible security hole (or a faulty detection method on BitDefender's side).
