False Positive


Recommended Posts


I have discovered that MBAE is blocking a legitimate program by HP (a false positive).

I've uploaded the program to VirusTotal: https://virustotal.com/en/file/497350b9d762e9e6934b877a7ad68759a0d6d186b4ff6c582a151201490752c8/analysis/1481361317/

And attached is the data from MBAE from the ProgramData folder.

Thank you.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

MBAE does not discern whether the payload by an exploit or social engineering attack is good or bad.

In this case the application is attempting to execute by having Chrome execute wscript.exe to run a script. This type of application behavior opens up a huge can of worms and security hole. I am amazed that HP is creating such insecure applications.

You should be able to open MBAE, go to the Log tab, select the block and then click "Exclude".
