I just installed balenaEtcher version 126.96.36.199 on my Windows 10 computer. When I tried to copy an .img file (Raspian Buster image for raspberry pi) to an SD card, my Acronis True Image 2020 Active Protection module stopped the process with the warning:
"Acronis Active Protection Possible Ransomware Detected
Acronis Active Protection paused the program that tried to modify your Master Boot Record"
Is it possible the download has been altered to include ransomware? Why should Etcher be modifying the Master Boot Record? I have blacklisted Etcher for now. Any help would be appreciated. Not sure what is going on.
Also, Etcher displays a message about getting stopped and says to inform the Etcher team. Not sure how to do this directly. Hopefully the team looks at the forum…
