This is a weird one that I came across this morning. I have a client that runs Malwarebytes Pro and Advanced SystemCare 9.4. Both are paid versions. I'm well aware of the IOBit theft, but I can't convince this client to remove it since it was paid and annually renewed. They upgraded to version 9.4 yesterday, and have an automatic Malwarebytes scan scheduled daily for 3am. This morning, they called me in a panic because all of their systems shows malware scan results of 474 PUPs. When I reviewed, the log, the majority were PUP.Optional.AdvancedSystemCare and PUP.Optional.DriverBooster, but there were 3 entries found for PUP.Optional.Venis. I'm not sure if these are associated with Venis Ransomware or if these are something else. There are no symptoms of an infection and the entries point to Advanced System Care registry keys. Are all of these entries false flags? Are they safe to ignore? Were these additions to the database intentional due to an actual threat, or is it due to bad blood with IOBit? I'm trying to give a recommendation based on facts, so I thought I'd inquire. Thanks in advance!
