Recommended Posts

Turned on my computer today and updated database version to v2013.12.09.01. Did a full scan , found nothing. My Avast Internet Security also found nothing on a full scan.

 

After accessing youtube for a while, I went to update my Malwarebytes again to see if theres any update. It downloaded v2013.12.09.02.

 

Did a full scan , found 2 threat.

 

Did not download anything for the past 1 week or install new stuff.

 

Scan log is attached but I removed the part where it says my computer name due to privacy. So far I did nothing since both file resides in the C drive and one of em in the C:\Windows

 

Help would be appreciated.

Without going into the basis of mbam's internal workings, we don't really need it to be the same 2 files. So long as a legitimate Microsoft file gets falsely detected by a definition that's recently added to our database bearing the same vendor name. it's fairly simple to track down.

Does malwarebyte's database work by adding definitions to it every update? If it does, there shouldn't be any false positive is it? Since it is just adding and adding every update. Thus there should not be any false positive on files that are known.
