Finding the virus or file name from a Malwarebytes report


Recommended Posts

Hi Forum

First time poster, I've tried to find this info on google and via a search on the forum but suspect I may not be searching on the correct phrase.

What I'd like to know is once Malwarebytes identifies a virus, Riskware or malware, where can I find the actual file or malicious code name?

I get reports that state things like this:

RiskWare.IFEOHijack, HKU\S-1-5-21-101202350-1709135890-1364944312-120735\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\POLICIES\EXPLORER\DISALLOWRUN|22, regedit.exe, , [bca4cc343862e0567fd3b7108281c43c]
RiskWare.IFEOHijack, HKU\S-1-5-21-101202350-1709135890-1364944312-122527\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\POLICIES\EXPLORER\DISALLOWRUN|22, regedit.exe, , [a6babc44ceccce687ed4e9de33d06898]
RiskWare.IFEOHijack, HKU\S-1-5-21-101202350-1709135890-1364944312-122567\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\POLICIES\EXPLORER\DISALLOWRUN|22, regedit.exe, , [4e12d22e900a1d19aaa8a126eb1803fd]
RiskWare.IFEOHijack, HKU\S-1-5-21-101202350-1709135890-1364944312-128155\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\POLICIES\EXPLORER\DISALLOWRUN|22, regedit.exe, , [d7893dc3801af54193bf4c7bd92aa15f]
RiskWare.IFEOHijack, HKU\S-1-5-21-101202350-1709135890-1364944312-132909\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\POLICIES\EXPLORER\DISALLOWRUN|22, regedit.exe, , [b3adf30db4e654e27bd7f6d114efdf21]

however, how do I find out what the actual file is that its referring to or the name of the malware?

Is this what you want?

RiskWare.IFEOHijack, HKU\S-1-5-21-101202350-1709135890-1364944312-120735\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\POLICIES\EXPLORER\DISALLOWRUN|22, regedit.exe

Red = Malware name given by malwarebytes

Black = File location/path

Thank you for the reply pondus.

I already did some research on the Image File Execution Options Hijack and in my case it lists keys, like disallowrun that could be hijacked. When I open the key it is blank. Hence the question. Is there any way to find out from the log what application is performing the hijack so that I can get to the actual file name?

To manually remove it I need to know what file is requesting to be used instead of the standard one. In the case of the above for example, where could I find the name if the key and values are all null?
