Trojan.Spatet found in HP Solution Centre file

Recommended Posts

I have a possible False Positive to report. MWB found this Trojan in an HP Solution Centre file for my HP Deskjet F2280. The Solution Centre had just been updated by HP but all this happened around the same time last week that Microsft found big security holes in Internet Explorer.

I followed the instructions in “READ BEFORE REPORTING” etc but when I ran the scan it found nothing – presumably because the (possible) Trojan has now been quarantined.

So here is a copy of the original log – is it enough for you to check it out please?

I’ve no idea how to save as Zip or RAR. Sorry!

Hello, please dequarantine the file and then have mbam update itself. If it's still being detected, kindly let us know.
