Norton Flagged .tmp file after installation of new MBAM version


Recommended Posts

Good evening,

 

This is my first post on this board so please let me know if I'm not giving enough information. I recently installed the latest version of Malwarebytes Premium (2.0.2.1012) on my Windows 8.1 system (64bit). I also run Norton 360 Premier, which is also up to date. Previously, the two programs had gotten along fine. However, today Norton flagged a .tmp file as a potential threat that seemed odd. Could this have something to do with compatibility with the new version of MBAM and Norton? 

 

I'm not one to go to sites that would potentially be dangerous (I'm sure everybody says that) and I've never had a virus in any of my systems before so I'm kind of at a loss. My computer is only several months old and is running perfectly fine. I haven't had any odd behavior to suspect hardware problems. After Norton quarantined the below, I ran full system scans with 360 and MBAM in safe mode and they came up clean. I also tried NPE. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Infected file: Filename: 00025707.tmp

Threat name: Trojan.Pandex
Full Path: c:\program files (x86)\malwarebytes anti-malware\00025707.tmp

I have experienced this twice now.  I suspect Norton is running a scan at the same time that Malwarebytes is doing an update.  The first time it happened I ran full system scans with all the scans on this site http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/90213-malware-removal-guide/

 

I have yet to find anything on the system and am thinking of adding an exclusion to Norton for it to scan.  No problems here either.

Perhaps this explains what you're seeing?

they are not malware. They are malware definitions that instruct some program how to detect malware. They arent from malwarebytes though. Best thing to do is submit some of those tmp files to norton and see if they recognize them.

This just happened to me for the third time today. I think you may be right. I've posed the question to Norton and gotten no helpful insight. Each time this has come up I've submitted the information to them.
