  1. Awesome, thank you so much for that confirmation @LiquidTension ... my anxiety levels are back in the green! 😀
  2. Thanks @Porthos! So were you able to confirm based on the file hashes? I just want to make sure that this exact file is a known Malwarebytes update file. Sorry for the crazy, off-the-charts paranoia but this is such an important component in my online security that seeing even just that one detection sent my anxiety into the red. Ugh! :) Thanks again!
  3. Hello folks! I was just prompted to update to MBAM 4 (from MBAM 3.8.3) and MBAM automatically downloaded the installer to this location: C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\instlrupdate\MBSetup.exe When I check that file with VirusTotal there's one detection from Jiangmin (Trojan.Agent.bvko). The MD5 hash of MBSetup.exe is e0e358ef46605899aabe5730466fe015 and SHA-1 is 401978c7b1e946ca3c7cf87e0d8ad82ce62d91b1. Here is the link to the VirusTotal scan: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/9eedefc07c8db89657cc8bb0cac14f7708c4dd4ec530d84a4c119b83a2c09e7b/detection Can someone please confirm/reassure me that the downloaded MBSetup.exe file is legit and that this is just a false positive? Much appreciated! :)
  4. Perfect, thanks @dcollins ... that is indeed the exact file I have. Awesome! Love these forums.
  5. (Oops, previous post got cut off) Thanks @1PW !! I did use VirusTotal to check the file previously and that is indeed the exact file I have on my system. I was a bit bothered by the fact that it had a -7 community score because someone (for some reason) downvoted it but I see you just upvoted it. Thanks for checking and confirming
  6. It's not a big issue to be honest (if it's an issue at all). I just happened to notice the service consuming slightly higher memory which led me to do some investigation. One thing led to another and since I'm a little paranoid I thought I'd just ask on the forum if someone can post the file hashes for that file. @exile360 or @Firefox do you mind posting the hashes for me so I can give my paranoia a rest
  7. I'm pretty sure it's valid, just doing some due diligence. I see somewhat high memory usage from time to time. There's a lot of posts on the board about a previous issue related to high CPU/memory usage for mbamservice.exe so I just wanted to make extra sure
  8. I really like the "Security audit" feature of MBAM Android but it's missing a crucial check ... whether or not Android is configured to allow installation from an unknown source. Can this check be added to the "Security audit" feature please?
  9. Hi folks, I just want to verify my MBAM install. Can someone please post the file hashes for the "official" version of "MBAMService.exe" which is typically found at: C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMService.exe Thanks!
  10. Hi, I'm probably missing something obvious ... When I run an on-demand scan it's very easy to see what the result of the scan was since there's a big counter while the sscan is running, and at the end there's a big checkmark with the words "No malware found!" which is very reassuring. However, when Malwarebytes automatically runs a scan after a database update, the only feedback I get is an entry under "Scanner" with the date and time, the time the scan took, and the number of files and apps that was scanned. There is no message saying "No malware found!" or something similar. So how do I know if the "Scan after update" found anything, or not? Here's a screenshot if it helps ... notice how the top entry that reads "Scan after update" has no message saying what the outcome of the scan was. Thanks!
  11. Just to make sure there is no confusion, here is a screenshot of what is installed by Google Chrome by default (AdwCleaner detects the Ask search entry).
  12. Oops, wish I could edit posts ... I meant to say in the previous message "Since the Ask search is installed by the latest versions(s) of Chrome by default ..."
  13. @fr33tux @Elisabeth @exile360 Sorry forgot to tag the right people for a response. Since the Ask toolbar is installed by the latest versions(s) of Chrome by default most (if not all) users of AdwCleaner will probably see that detection so a little more clarity around this will be great.
  14. Hi, thanks for the reply. So just to clarify ... what you're saying is that, even though the Ask search engine is installed by Chrome by default and not "real" malware, you still advise against having it which is why it's reported by AdwCleaner, is that right? I just want to make sure I don't have anything to worry about (other than the fact that Ask search is installed by Chrome). Thanks!
