environment: win-10au (1607-14393.576) 64bit windows-defender (auto-disabled) avg (16.131.7924) mbam (126.96.36.1993) free default-login: admin am wondering if PUM.Optional.NoDrives is false-positive or legitimate threat. here on support.malwarebytes … not much coverage with regard to PUM offenses/detections … i find that curious. does everyone take a nilly-willy approach and simply white-list or remove PUM incidents? and what do they base their decision on? i have read mbam's cursory faq/PUM article … and thanks for that. anyway … normal routine for me is to update/scan mbam every time i boot up. two days ago, after update/scan … mbam alerted me to the above mentioned PUM. investigating on the internet i found only one article regarding a "NoDrives" registry key (see url below). the article never stated if its a legitimate key or not. cutting to the chase, i chose mbam "ignore once" option … rebooted and update/scan second time … same result (the key's binary value changes). so, my question is this … should i white-list the detection or remove it? if the detection reappears (after reboot) … would it then be a candidate for white-list? am attaching the *.txt file … this file was the result after running "mbam.exe /developer" at command-line … thanks, in advance, for the courtesy. attempt_03.txt ref: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc938267.aspx https://support.malwarebytes.com/customer/portal/articles/1834897-what-are-pum-detections-are-they-threats-and-should-they-be-deleted-?b_id=6438
