Possible False Positive VLC?


Recommended Posts

This morning I received a warning that Malwarebytes blocked VLC player (I was not using it at the time) and mentioned something about trojan.downloader.tc/axvlc.dll.  Afterwards, I ran a scan and it found vlc-1.1.11-win32.exe (Trojan.Downloader.TC) as a threat.  However, I have had this exe file in my downloads folder since I first build this computer over a year ago and noticed nothing adverse.  Is this a false positive or something else?  Thanks.

I am at working presently so I do not have access to my desktop's logs.  However, on my work laptop I also have VLC installed so I updated/ran MB scans and found nothing.  Both VLCs I believe were downloaded from the official site with the only difference being my desktop's version was 1.1.11 and laptop's is 2.0.3.  For those of you who also got the same trojan detected, can you please post what version of VLC you have/had?
