Will this be fixed soon?  I have the same problem on my wife's computer.  Interestingly, it doesn't occur on my laptop.  My laptop is running Win 10 Home.  My wife is running Win 10 Pro.

It's me again - anyone care to respond to my question above?  No other scans pick this up, but I want to be certain that it is a false positive that will be fixed sometime soon and wondering why it's picked up on one computer and no the other.  This is a concern and I'd appreciate a reply from someone.  Thanks.

This should be a false positive.

Can i ask you to run mbar on this machine and send me the logs?

 

https://www.malwarebytes.com/antirootkit/

 

Please attach here the mbar-log and the system-log,txt from the mbar folder.

After you run mbar dont hit cleanup. Just exit the application.

Also if it creates files in the mbar folder similiar to this naming structure please zip them and attach them here:

filename-k.mbam

filename-u.mbam

Thanks Shadowar.  I ran the program as you suggested and it came up empty - no malicious items found.  I reviewed the log and everything scanned came up zero.  I also could not find the two files you mentioned.  I've run my Kaspersky scan on high as well as the rootkit scan and those are good too.  This must be some kind of weird false positive.  I assume it can be ignored.  It's a system driver so I don't want to quarantine or remove it.  What do you think?  I didn't attach the log as it didn't show anything.

Ok but mbam 3.still detects? Even if accidently removed all it would do is rewrite the driver and not remove it. So shouldn't affect anything.

Any word on this? I've been showing the same file as a detection since April (and it was clean on previous rootkit scans), but the file has not been modified for well over a year.

  @Gamboleer  - Are you running our latest program version 3.1.2.1733?

@gregnedel - Can you please update to our latest program version 3.1.2.1733? That should resolve these FP detections.

Seems fixed now, thank you. My automatic updater said no updates were available, but was v 3.06. It was actually a little hard to find the download; if you go to MalwareBytes.com. you only see two buttons, for a free trial or to buy, no button for existing customers.

@Gamboleer - I'm glad the issue is resolved, thanks for letting me know. I'm sorry you had trouble finding the download link, I should have provided a direct link for you as well, which is here:

https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3

We meter our in-app upgrades, so it's quite possible when you try to manually Install Application Updates from the Settings > Application tab, none were available at the time of the check.

Again, I'm glad the issue is resolved for you. Thanks for choosing Malwarebytes!
