2020.2 update - Trust or Block?

After spending most of yesterday unsuccessfully attempting to upgrade to 2020.2 the following messages have appeared: - Possible ransomware detected.  Acronis Active Protection paused the program that modified your files.  The binary format has been changed for several files.  MYOB.AccountRight.API.AddOnConnector.exe

Unknow vendor

10 files affected (all of them MYOB Clearwater Files 2020.2)

Trust - This program will be added to the whitelist

Block - This program will be added to the blacklist and affected files will be recovered.

 

What should one do?

Hi @Gennie 

 

As the warnings relate to the clearwater sample files only, you can safely add this application to the whitelist. However, please also note that if you do not have any third party applications that connect to AccountRight, then you don't need to install the Add-on connector at all.

Please let me know if you have further questions on this.

Kind regards,
Komal

Thanks so much for your answer.  What does third party applications mean?  I don't get bank feeds and mostly work offline except for connecting ATO.

Hi @Gennie 

 

Bankfeeds and connecting to ATO do not require add-on connector. Basically, the third party applications I mentioned are some other apps which may be used for timesheets or invoicing and send data over to AccountRight. 

Kind regards,
