FileHippo App Manager - PUP.Optional.InstallCore.A

Recommended Posts

The realtime Malware Protection for my MBAM Premium v. appears to have incorrectly detected the executable for the FileHippo App Manager v1.47.0.103 (formerly known as FileHippo Update Checker - available for download from http://filehippo.com/download_app_manager/59899/) as PUP.Optional.InstallCore.A.  This is a utility I occasionally run to check if there are updates available for third-party software installed on my PC.


The attached files are a zipped version of the restored C:\Program Files\FileHippo.com\FileHippo.AppManager.exe as well as my MBAM Protection Log showing the detection.  Version 1.47 of this FileHippo utility is the current stable release and it has been installed on my system since 30-Jan-2015.  Today is the first time it has been detected (MBAM database version 2015.5.24.3).

Hi and thanks for reporting this.


Confirmed this is a F/p detection and we will get it fixed on the next update cycle.

Hi fatdcuk:


Thanks for the prompt response.  I tested this morning with MBAM database version 2015.5.25.4 and FileHippo.AppManager.exe is no longer detected as a PUP.
