New Windows 8.1 install... 2 detections?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I've just done a full scan after setting up a computer with a fresh install of Windows 8.1 and a couple of other programs and the scan found 2 items.

Files Detected: 2

C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft-windows-atl_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_3fc0044d754c0225\atl.dll (Trojan.FakeMS) -> No action taken.

C:\Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft-windows-vcm-core-codecs_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_01428598f4095f36\iccvid.dll (Trojan.FakeAlert) -> No action taken.

Can anyone clarify if these are actual threats or just false positives? Just seems strange that they are there so soon after a fresh install of Windows.

Hi,

 

Is this done with latest database update? Can you please verify and make sure you have latest? (mbam - update - check for updates), because this is a false positive indeed and has been fixed already.

If it's still detecting with latest database update, then please zip and attach both files it detects to this thread so we can fix this.

Database seems quite old, but the update button is greyed out... see attached screenshot.

 

I only just downloaded Malwarebytes from the website a couple of days ago.

ahh, silly me. Was logged in as the user who will be on using the computer. I am updating the database now and will do another scan, then report back.
