Hi All

I am getting reports of PUM LowRiskFileTypes when performing a scan

would appreciate feedback as to whether these are legitimate issues or being reported in error as the LowRiskFileTypes in the registry are intended to assist with the detection of certain file Types and the actions to take thereafter


Many Thanks

Hello rharper and :welcome:

Reference: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Users Guide - Application Logs - Scan Log

Before you can be provided with a definitive answer, it would be best if you attached, in a reply, your system's Scanning History Log for the date and time of the incident, for analysis:

  • Please open the MBAM2 Graphical User Interface and near the top-right of the window, single left-click History.
  • Within the new window that opens, and on the left, single left-click Application Logs.
  • Within the next new window that opens, left double-click the Scan Log line for the date/time in question.
  • Verify that the incident is documented within this log file. Otherwise, repeat step 3 for the correct line.
  • Within the Scanning History Log window that opens, and near the lower left of this window, single left-click the Export button with the vertical down arrow.
  • Within the menu that appears, single left-click the Text file (*.txt) menu item only.
  • In the left pane of the Save File window that opens, scroll to and single left-click the Desktop item.
  • Near the bottom of the window's right pane, single left-click in the vacant white box to the immediate left of File name:.
  • Type: Scan.txt in the same white box, then near the lower-right corner, single left-click the Save button.
  • These steps will have created a Scan.txt file icon on your system's desktop.
  • Close all previously opened windows.
  • Attach the new Scan.txt file, from your desktop, in your next reply. Please do not compress and/or post the Protection.txt file to a file sharing service's site.

Thank you.
