Possible Infection - PUP. Optional FrostwireTB.A

Recommended Posts

Dear Sirs

Undertaken Hyper Scan this morning and nothing detected closely followed by "threat scan" where upon 33 objects were detected all starting with PUP.Optional.FrostwireTB.A


I firstly quarantined these then selected for deletion then restarted my PC


I've undertaken the same scan procedure and once again all 33 objects have been detected.

Windows 7 Ultimate with Mcafee Total Protection.


here has never been anything like this on previous scans and my pc is used mainly for work purposes with occasional careful internet use.


All Malwarebytes software updated on a daily basis.


Can you advise if this is an infection and if so how should I proceed.


Many thanks

I ran a scan about a week ago and did not find this item. Today there were two instances of pup.optional.frostwiretb.a.

Has anyone posted anything about this besides the three of us? I am in the process of finishing my scan and will restart it then run the scan again.

There are database updates at least 10 times a day, this is to add new threats that are discovered and to protect all Malwarebytes users... this could be why it was not detected yesterday. If you think the detections are false positives you can always upload the files for review HERE, but it would probably be best to follow my instructions in post #2 above.
