Malwarebytes reports what Avast appears to be calling their Driver Updater as a PUP - swdumon.sys containing PUP.Optional.DriverUpdate. The Avast software looks like a clone of the DriverUpdate reported on other forum pages - I thought Avast were reputable - now I'm just confused. Help welcome. I scanned the swdumon.sys file with VirusTotal https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/b0746d93a46812608faf84167a178c118fa6318996e15c17df170e7b6b2d69f5/details
I've been using Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta (MARB) - thank you for the peace of mind. I get blocking alerts everyday from avast antivirus of the form: smb//18.104.22.168/nsacve-2017-0144_EternalBlue which a google search identifies as a ransomware threat. What's surprising to me is that MARB does not react to these threats, and does not list them as having occurred. Is this because they have been thwarted by a/v and the threats never touch the software. If this is what's happening, my enthusiasm for MARB is not diminished - I'm happy to have the extra layer of protection - but thought I'd check. rptetrie
