False positive on Process Lasso


Recommended Posts

User reported false positive on Process Lasso as 'trojan.agent.gen'. (no further details yet).


Probably affected report builds:

32-bit Workstation - https://bitsum.com/files/processlassosetup32.exe

64-bit Workstation - https://bitsum.com/files/processlassosetup64.exe


Ancillary builds possibly affected:

32-bit Server Edition - https://bitsum.com/files/server/processlassosetup.exe

32-bit Server Edition - https://bitsum.com/files/server/processlassosetup64.exe






Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter!

Thanks for checking, and sorry no false positive was found in them. I will direct the user here and request logs.


Since those were clean, it's *possible* it came from our auto-update module as well, which is definitely a likely false positive candidate since it's an SFX package:

I really appreciate you taking this matter seriously and apologize we haven't hit the source of the false positive yet. The user has not responded back (maybe scared away, I dunno).


We DID have a report of the SAME detection name on our CPUEater Demo (which induces a high load to show off our ProBalance algorithm) by Clean.Mx, though VirusTotal doesn't show any false positive with MalwareBytes, only 3 of 63 scanners, and those 3 of low quality. Also, our digital signature and time-stamp is in-tact on both the following.




If you could please check these LAST TWO, then I will get out of your hair, satisfied if there was a problem, it has been resolved, unless I hear from the user with more info, or get any other data.

I have the same detection on my system; XP Home SP3 and Process Lasso v8.2.
