Kaspersky Installer with zbot trojan?


Recommended Posts

I think this might be a false positive. I was installing Kaspersky on a new machine, followed by MBAM. MBAM immediately flagged the Kaspersky installer as containing the zbot trojan.


I followed the suggested procedure that I read here: 1) remove old MBAM. 2) Install Kaspersky. 3) Turn off protection on Kaspersky. 4) Install MBAM.


The file comes from Kaspersky labs, so unless I've got a case of DNS cache poisoning, this should be the real deal. The file is signed and the signature on the file seems to check out.


I checked the Kaspersky forum, I'm not the first to notice this, but the response from their staff is always a curt "Please report MBAM's false positives to MalwareBytes."


Files generated and attached as requested in the sticky note at the top of the forum.
