"Threat" again


Recommended Posts

A week or so ago MB scan picked up a "Threat" that was not really a Threat.

After downloading today recent definitions, MB has picked up another Threat and I wonder why, all of a sudden MB is picking this file as a "Threat" when it has been on the Vista since 11/5/2011 (in Download folder)?

(I believe we were, at that time, converting some old VHS tapes to DVD, or something similar.)

What do I do?

Adware.AKN

File

C:\Users\MyName\Downloads\AVIT oMP4ConverterSetupD.exe

Hello, alicez:

Until an MBAM staffer arrives, information about reporting about false positives can be found in this sticky topic, including uploading the file to virustotal, etc:

READ BEFORE REPORTING A FALSE POSITIVE!

Then, please post with the requested information in the False Positives section.

One of the MBAM engineers will evaluate the file in question, and update the MBAM database accordingly, if needed. :)

False-positives happen occasionally with nearly all security programs. (And it's certainly better than having a program miss real malware.)

However, if this is indeed a FP, then I'm sure the MBAM folks will correct things promptly. :)

HTH,
