Possible false positive (file) detected as Trojan Agent?


Recommended Posts

Good evening,

     During a daily scheduled Threat Scan today, MBAM detected the following file as a Trojan Agent:  C:\ProgramData\TEMP\RAIDTest.  I have attached the zipped file and the MBAM scan report as per instructions for reporting a possible FP.

(NOTE:  For what it's worth...a few members at the Wilders Security Forums are also reporting this same event).

* I have also scanned the aforementioned file with SAS, my ESET Smart Security program, and uploaded the file to VirusTotalNo issues were reported.

Thank you for your time, review, and info regarding any action I should take.

Welcome to the MBAM Forums, erimeix! :)

     The file in question (and MBAM's detection of it as a Trojan Agent), was a false positive, as Moderator thisisu mentioned in his posts above.  Updating your MBAM database to v2016.10.21.02 will resolve the issue.

I updated my database to the aforementioned version last night, then restored the "RAIDtest" file from Quarantine to its original location.  I ran another "Threat Scan" and MBAM no longer detects it as a trojan.

If you still encounter problems after following thisisu's instructions, please post back, describing the issue(s) you're having, and someone will assist you.

Best regards,
