Hi, im using Android phone transferring to my PC laptop. It just a routine photos transfer. However, i can't open it on my laptop this time. As shown on properties, size and size on disk is too much different. I can't open the photos and can't even transfer or zip it due to its size. Anyone familiar with this issues and how to fix it? Thanks
Malwarebytes 3.6.1 claims that there are threats on my system, these files are 5 years old, why are they saying Trojan.Agent.Generic unless it's false-positive? And I think the .jpg files are also false-positive for RiskWare.ExtensionMismatch, as the only .jpg in the Recycle Bin were created using my Android phone.
I am concerned about multimedia files that I download having malware inside them. In the first answer in this forum post, David H. Lipman soon states But then he goes on to note Assuming that the above info is still current, I have a couple questions. First, why does MBAM skip scanning of non-executable files? Yes, executables are the most significant danger. But interpreted file types can still have malware. Like MBAM eventually added support for scanning within archive files, will they eventually add support for scanning all file types? Second, I note that I also use the paid for version of AVG, and when I scanned ~40 GB of media files just now, AVG took only a few seconds. That was about as long as MBAM's scan of those same files. This makes me think that AVG, which is supposed to be a traditional anti virus application, is also not really scanning these files. Should I be concerned?
I visited a site this morning that turned out to be suspicious. I used Windows Snipping Tool to take a screen shot of the page asking me to call them immediately to fix my "problem". I then did a Malwarebytes scan and it flagged one problem - my screen-captured jpeg image of the "Warning" screen. This was not the jpg from the site. Assuming my screen capture does not actually include malware - why was it flagged? Log_and_File.zip
