  1. This is the executable file for a very basic software interface written by a vape company. I downloaded the software from the official company website and ran it though VS Code before installing. I did not note any malicious code hidden in the software, but presumably due to the very basic and old-fashioned formatting, Malwarebytes immediately quarantined it. The site where I accessed the program is https://voopoo.com. I am not sure what other information you might need, but based on my knowledge I believe the program could be safely whitelisted. I attached a screenshot of the quarantined file.
  2. Hello Please find in the attached archive 3 files detected as malware during a Malwarebytes scan done on October 1st. These files are OK on VirusTotal scans. The Malwarebytes report is included in the archive. Thanks and regards false positives_20191001.rar
  3. Hi, advise please as to if this website block by Malwarebytes is a false positive or not?. hxxps://ohsw7kcq3.qnssl.com/file/14984687013583gjox1savd4.zip The zip file is attached to this post. Log: -Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 , , Blocked, [-1], [-1],0.0.0 -Website Data- Category: Trojan Domain: ohsw7kcq3.qnssl.com IP Address: 117.91.177.227 Port: [49897] Type: Outbound .. The IP address changes though!. The link that was blocked is a firmware update and update program/tool which runs on Windows, but the firmware is for a non windows device. I scanned the zip file that I downloaded after removing the website block and Malwarebytes detects nothing. The webpage with the Link on it to the firmware update and update tool is not blocked: hxxps://www.smoktech.com/faq/273 but the download link for the firmware update and update tool on the above webpage is blocked & listed as a Trojan, but like I said, Malwarebytes detects nothing when I scan the zip file. So what I need to know is was it just a false positive?, or was the connection to the Domain the problem?. 14984687013583gjox1savd4.zip
  4. I have been using Adhell 3 for the last 7 months. Today, opening it to take care of a new exception on my Galaxy A8 (2018) running Oreo 8.0 with Samsung Experience level 9.0, it was determined to be a banking Trojan by Malwarebytes. Not sure if it is or not as before today, despite daily scanning by Malwarebytes, it has not triggered an alarm. Just to be safe, uninstalled meantime. Scan said that file: android/trojan.banker.asacub.cp was detected in the program. Am attaching a screenshot of the initial scan report. Not sure if it was part of a recent update or not that "something" changed the state of this app. The original download was from this address: https://m.mediafire.com/folder/sb37c6gmhqgbn/AdHell_3 I have used Dr Web to run a full scan after Malwarebytes alerted me to deal with this. It found nothing... Malwarebytes was installed & functional before downloaded the Adhell program & it hasn't changed to my knowledge from the initial install to the update just day's ago (screenshots provided) of it being safe.
  5. Got a detection this morning on ONE computer but the file doesn't seem to be malicious. Please explain how this batch file is a Trojan: Trojan.Agent.Trace Quarantined C:\DelUS.bat Contents: :Repeat attrib -R "C:\Users\MICHAE~1.BRI\AppData\Local\Temp\DelE864.tmp" del "C:\Users\MICHAE~1.BRI\AppData\Local\Temp\DelE864.tmp" if exist "C:\Users\MICHAE~1.BRI\AppData\Local\Temp\DelE864.tmp" goto Repeat attrib -R "\DelUS.bat" del "\DelUS.bat"
  6. Hey there! This is more of just asking for Malwarebytes Staff/ Professional's opinion on an issue. On July 4th, I scanned my computer with Malwarebytes Premium and the Anti-rootkit beta; nothing was found each time. When I did a full scan of my computer with Windows Defender just to make sure, it says I was infected with "Trojan:O97M.Dplink.A". When I saw this I started to do some research on this trojan, but couldn't find any info other than a reddit thread talking about it and Microsoft's own entry on the trojan. I posted this to the Microsoft Community website asking if it was a false positive, but didn't really get a straight answer from them. I'll post it here because it goes into detail what happened; sorry that it's lengthy, but I like to try and be as thorough as I can be and I don't want to post links leading out of the forum: " Hello! I've been trying to figure this out all day; on my desktop earlier today, Windows defender flagged a file associated with the Immersive Control Panel - 'Control Panel a.k.a. ControlPanel.settingcontent-ms' - as 'Trojan:O97M/DPlink.A' in my user files and in the 'Windows.Old' files (I'd just reformatted and updated to 1803 about two weeks ago). This seemed strange since I've only logged into my Gmail, Youtube and Amazon since last night and haven't downloaded anything or even opened up an email, so I really haven't been in a position to have been infected by anything. Also, I had scanned my computer with Windows Defender last night too, and nothing came up when I did that. Windows Defender had deleted the file, so I don't have it on my computer anymore to send, if you needed it. I've run a full scan on my laptop and my father's laptop as well; WIndows Defender flagged the same exact file in the same exact location as the same Trojan I named above each time. On VirusTotal, I've noticed that Microsoft (Windows Defender) is the only Antivirus/Antimalware that's flagging it as a malicious XML file, labeling it 'Trojan:O97M/DPlink.A' leading me to suspect that this is a false positive. After a whole day of scouring the internet, I wanted to ask the Microsoft Community if this is indeed a threat or is Windows Defender detecting a false positive? On a side note, W.D. deleted the suspected file off my laptop as well, but I do have a screenshot of where it detected the suspected file; I'll attach it for reference. I do have the suspected file still on my father's laptop; windows defender is doing a full scan with the most recent virus definitions now as opposed to earlier today and the same file is not being flagged anymore. On all the machines I've scanned I ran a full scan with Malwarebytes Premium before running Windows Defender; Malwarebytes didn't detect anything on any computer during any scan, even when I had it select the exact file in question. [Screenshot is attached below] To summerize, I'm wanting to know if the file Windows Defender flagged is truly malicious or just a false positive? Given how my desktop and my laptop have deleted ControlPanel.settingcontent-ms from 'windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy' folder, will this cause permanent damage to my systems or will they still function properly? (I haven't noticed any problems yet)" I know that Malwarebytes staff isn't Microsoft, but based on the information above and the evidence I can present, do you feel confident in saying that this is a false positive? Admittedly, I do nnot have the ControlPanel.settingcontent-ms file on my computer since Windows Defender deleted it, but I have a link leading to the virus total page whee I uploaded it to the website; as of right now, Virus Total doesn't flag the file in question as malicious across any A.V./A.M. Thank you for taking the time to read this monster of a post and I hope to hear from you soon!
  7. Malwarebytes blocked a site with address ia801509.us.archive.org several times in the space of a couple of minutes earlier today. I am aware of archive.org as a website, but I haven't accessed the website either when this occurred, or in recent times. I wasn't downloading any files, and all I had open was a new blank tab in Google Chrome. There are no options for blocking or whitelisting the site, and Malwarebytes automatically tried to add it to the list of ignored items. Is this site malware? And why was Malwarebytes ignoring the threat despite being reported as malware? After a full scan, no malware or other threats have been detected, so really I'm at a loss. Attached are the details for one of the scans. All the highlighted reports are for this threat. The threat came from my Google Chrome application. Any ideas?
