  1. belongs to a local reputable company. If I use a computer that does not have malwarebytes installed, the website loads and their doesn't appear to be a problem. Could this be a false positive?
  2. Your software is generating a false positive for the pdf995 printer driver download at www.pdf995.com. Please correct this issue.
  3. Hey guys. I've found a "security.hijack". I'm guessing, it's a false positive, like this one: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=113609 Just to be safe, I would like to hear your opinion on it. Here is my log: In that registry folder, there are two keys: "(Standart)", which seems to be empty, and "Debugger", which contains "C:\Program Files (x86)\TuneUp Utilities 2012\TUAutoReactivator64.exe". - I'm using Tuneup 2012's program deactivator to completely deactivate itunes, as long as I don't need it. - I use Avira Antivirus 2012 premium and it never found anything. - I downloaded itunes (as far as I remember, since I am very careful about what I download and install) directly from apple. So, I have two questions now: 1. Am I right, that this "Security.Highjack" can be ignored? 2. If yes: What if I put it on the ignore-list and after that some malware actually compromises that registry key? Would MBAM ignore that as well? Regards Max
  4. Legacy version of Universal Server file unidelay.exe is suddenly showing as malware after having been on computer for years. See attached log (with /developer switch) and unidelay.exe. Fairly certain this is a false positive. mbam.zip
  5. MBAM is currently the only one in VirusTotal to report. (It was submitted for the first time few months ago, back then 5 other products reported something) None of the 41 engines in metascan reported something. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (PRO) Database version: v2012.12.29.11 Windows 7 Service Pack 1 x64 NTFS Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421 Protection: Disabled 2012-12-29 17:05:49 Scan type: Flash scan Scan options enabled: Memory | Startup | Heuristics/Extra | Heuristics/Shuriken | PUP | PUM Scan options disabled: Registry | File System | P2P Objects scanned: 231797 Time elapsed: 7 second(s) Files Detected: 1 C:\Users\Simon\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\UpdateDrv.exe (Trojan.Agent.Gen) -> No action taken.

  6. Is this a false positive? Thank you for your help a couple of days ago <http://forums.malwar...howtopic=119465>. I think I've found another one. A scan of the computer turns up this result. " ...\GCC4TI 0.96 Beta 10 (win32 setup) -gcc4ti\setup-gcc4ti.exe (Trojan.Agent) -> No action taken. " setup-gcc4ti.exe is the installer for the GCC4TI project, an SDK for the TI-89, TI-89T, TI-92+ and TI-V200 (collectively known as TI-68k) calculators in the C and ASM languages. <https://github.com/d...uxl/gcc4ti/wiki> or <http://trac.godzil.net/gcc4ti/>. I'm fairly certain this one is another false positive since this same file came up clean when I did a scan just a couple of days ago. Scans of the file in question with AVG and Spybot Search & Destroy both come up clean, so I'm really hoping this is just another false positive. -Files and log attached. Please help. Thank you. setup-gcc4ti.rar mbam-log-2012-12-14 (18-13-13).txt
  7. Is this a false positive? Scanned of computer turns up this result. " Registry Keys Detected: 2 HKCR\CLSID\{E9373BD9-7363-427F-A2A6-1E8BA91FFB3E} (Trojan.Agent) -> No action taken.

" tiemups.dll is part of TiEmu - a TI89(ti)/92(+)/V200 emulator, and seems to have had issues as a false positive in the past since a google search turns up: <http://sourceforge.net/projects/gtktiemu/forums/forum/73169/topic/2094898>. I'm not sure what the registry keys are. I suspect they are part of that same program (which for some reason was really annoying to get installed and set up correctly) so I left them alone (I didn't want to screw up something in the registry by removing them... I just hope I did the right thing). Scans of this PC with AVG and Spybot Search & Destroy both came up clean, so I'm really hoping the keys are also false positives. But I'm worried since today was the first time Malwarebytes Anti-Malware got updated on this PC in a month and so they might be unrelated to that program and be actual problems. -Files and log attached, not sure how to attach the registry keys (or if you even need them). So far nothing has been removed or deleted. Please help. Thank you. tiemups.rar mbam-log-2012-12-12 (05-28-22).txt

  9. Hi. IP : domain : francepointspermis.fr MBAM blocking my website. My site is hosted by OVH, I opened a ticket with them too thanks for help
  10. 2012/11/28 20:59:33 -0500 DATASLUM andrew IP-BLOCK (Type: outgoing, Port: 60629, Process: firefox.exe) This IP belongs to: http://www.sxtpdevelopers.com Which is a well known developers / rom leak website for Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Would appreciate the site unblock. I was just attempting to browse the site when a tooltip popped up saying it was blocked by Malware.
  11. We our a small software company that builds custom software for law enforcement agencies, one of our programs shows up as a Trojan when running Malware bytes and leads the user to believe it is a Trojan. When this happens, of course they remove our exe file causing our software be disabled. What do we need to do in order to prevent this from happening? mbam-log-2012-11-16 (08-29-49).zip
  12. hi this is my first post on this forum .. there is some thing wrong with my ip ..or domain .. its fastertorrent.net my antivirus always block the site ,, please check the problem thanks in advance
  13. While visiting the harmless site Flabber.nl . See the log file attached. Kind regards, Gert protection-log-2012-11-05.rar
  14. I was browsing website http://www.up-magazine.info which is hosted by OVH and use a shared IP ( Thousands of French websites are blocked because is detected has a possible threating IP address.
  15. In the last day, a full scan detected one trojan: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Photo Gallery\WLXPhotoGalleryRepair.exe (Trojan.Inject). I made a screen print of the results from the scan and attached it (for what it's worth). I've attached the DDS.txt and Attach.txt files - in order to run as administrator I opened up a command prompt run as administrator and ran DDS.com from my desktop. After detecting it, I first ignored it and sent the file to VirusTotal which showed 0/43 detecting anything (see attached). I ran the scan again in /developer mode thinking it might be a false positive and have attached the logfile generated. Afterwards I quarantined it, but thought I'd restore it to see if was detected by other scans and in case needed for further investigation. After highlighting and clicking restore several times it finally "disappeared" from the quarantine, but now it's nowhere to be found. It appears to have been deleted instead of restored as it was visible before quarantining... I ran a full MBAM scan after the quarantine & attempted restore and all came up clean. I did try several other scans after but got the BSOD for IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL but chalk that up to trying to do too much at one time. Everything appears to be up and running fine since, but want to make sure I truly am clean, know if it was picked up somehow, or was an fp. Thanks in advance! Also meant to say I'd googled the executable and it appears this is a legitimate file, but unfortunately now can't compare it with known versions...oh and noticed I hadn't posted the VirusTotal scan (for what it's worth, lol). Again thanks in advance for your assistance! dds.txt attach.txt 10-17-12 MBAM detection.rtf mbam-log-2012-10-17 (07-05-50).txt Virus Total scan.rtf
  16. After an hour of playing tf2 this came out and the database had just updated 5 mins before i stopped playing,im not sure if it is a false positive it was the first time it popped up
  17. Hi there, Out software "Affixa" (www.affixa.com) is being identified as Trojan by Malwarebytes. I've attached the developer log, exports of the registry keys concerned and the Browser Helper Object DLL. Can you please review and confirm the status as a false positive? Also, can you confirm whether I'll need to repeat this process for future versions of Affixa, or is it a one-time validation you perform? Thanks in advance! Chris Wood Affixa-MBAM.zip

  22. Malwarebytes marked this as bad. Checked it on VirusTotal and it was said it was fine. False positive? python_icon.rar
  23. Hi, I've been strugling since 6 months with users reporting me that my website is not accessible without knowing what was the factor. Well, the factor is MalwareBytes that is blocking this IP : for no reason The server (the whole server is mine) there is my website : http://www.seek-team.com that has been suffering from this false positive. I must say that i'm kind of angry because of this situation...
  24. Hi, Please remove IP from your false positive list. The website is www.AudioLabel.com We have been in business for over 10 years, and are far from malicious. We recently changed web servers, and ended up with different IPs address (I guess of the malicious kind). Thanks for your prompt attention to this matter. Best Regards, Tim Rolfe AudioLabel Technical Support
