[Possible false positive?] easycleaner_v2.0.6.380.exe

Recommended Posts

I ran a MBAM scan just a moment ago, and got up with a malware alert from my user/downloads, named "Adware.LoadMoney". The file itself is almost a year old .exe file donwloaded from an offical source, and my Malwarebytes hasn't recognized it as a threat while I've ran scans almost daily for the past year when I've used MBAM. I've also done some scanning to my computer with Farbar and other more advanced programs with professional guidance some months ago when the file has already been on my computer. I've also not had any sign of adware infection on my PC. But regardless, I let MBAM move the file to quarantine.

I incerted the file itself to Virustotal, here's what it gave:

Nonetheless, could anyone know what kind of infection of that name would be?

Hi, confirmed this is a false positive indeed. Will be fixed in next database update which will be pushed out in a few minutes after this message :)

Hello! I wrote about this issue to the offical Avast forum today, and one of their professionals provided me this link:

https://www.reasoncoresecurity.com/easycleaner.exe-2c4d9dd27559c5a139b43a02b143f4c8e387fb6c.aspx

That report seems to mark the file (which the said poster was the same as mine) as Threat.Generic.Variant.Installer. While I'm releaved that poeple at Malwarebytes declared this as false positive, this link left me a bit uneasy about the subject :unsure:
