Possible False Positive - Trojan.StartPage.E


Recommended Posts

A MBAM v2.2.1 Threat Scan of 25-Sep-2016 (malware database: v2016.09.25.06) quarantined the following registry entry as Trojan.StartPage.E on my 32-bit Vista computer (see attached scan log):

Registry Keys: 1
Trojan.StartPage.E, HKU\S-1-5-21-3086198521-800258848-3831315664-1001_Classes\CLSID\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}, Quarantined, [9dbd96e06832d75fc6809466986c1fe1],

I noticed that didero's 27-Sep-2016 thread Trojan.Startpage.E in this board reported a similar detection for a registry entry for ....\WOW6432NODE\CLSID\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D} on their Win 10 computer that was confirmed as a false positive.  A Google search indicates this CLSID might be associated with the Internet Explorer browser, so I'm not sure if my Trojan.StartPage.E detection is also false positive or a real detection for a browser hijacker.

Mozilla Firefox v49.0.1 is my default browser.
32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox v49.0.1 * IE9 * NIS  v22.8.0.50 * MBAM Premium v2.2.1.1043
