Possible False Positives When Printing PDF Files

Recommended Posts

Dear Malwarebytes,


We are currently using the managed MBAE version We suspected that there are false positives when our clients print PDF files. The latest incident was printed from Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard to HP 600 printer.


Here are an example of the alerts we received:

We replaced client's info with XXX due to privacy. Attached you will find the MBAE files. Please have a fix for us ASAP.


Thank you.

Thanks again for the logs REGITDept. Can you exclude the detection and, if so, does it remain excluded and not detected again?

Hi pbust,


We feel that the product need to be fix instead of having us trying to exclude the detection, especially when we are talking about hundred of clients.
