False Positivo?


Recommended Posts

Hello Team MalwareBytes

Installed the Savefrom.net helper extension in all browsers, Vivaldi, Opera, and Firefox to download Youtube videos and Facebook and had not been detected by malwarebytes no abnormalities at the time of installation.

When you restart Firefox browser extension has been removed to quarantine, as can be seen below:

Detection, 28/06/2016 23:50, XXXXX, DESKTOP-JTVQ5EM, Protection, Malware Protection, Archive, PUP.Optional.SaveFrom,C:\Users\Edson\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\szbnlbt1.default-1465398675327\extensions\helper@savefrom.net.xpi, Quarantine [8acdfb072674270f0e96d2ee48bb12ee]

I wonder if it is a false positive because the other browsers are installed the extension and nothing was detected by MalwareBytes.

The extension is the official website of the Firefox browser as can be seen in this link: https://addons.mozilla.org/pt-BR/firefox/addon/savefromnet-helper/?src=ss

Using Windows 10 x64 version of malwarebytes

Sorry the language errors because the text was translated from Portuguese Brazil to English by Google Translate

I thank you for your attention
