Can't figure out if this is legit exploit or false positive


Recommended Posts

We are on a managed client    Version

Anti-Malware Version :

Anti-Exploit Version: 

Database Version V2017.05.25.07


We had one of our users go to WebMD and copy and paste an article and we got hit with a exploit alert.

Can you confirm if this is a real threat or a false positive?

Hello Iambry,

I want to have you collect some logs from the event so I can look into this further. To do this:

Please download our diagnostic tool, MB-Check to your Desktop from this link: https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3_check

Double-click it to run it. A black command prompt window will appear momentarily and you will see a message appear telling you to locate the zipped log files.

A zip file named mb-check-results.zip will be saved to your Desktop. 
Please attach this file to your next reply.

Hey Iambry,


It seems like the tool didn't gather the logs which is strange since there should have been an alert generated for this. I apologize for this, but can you collect the C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit directory for me so I can be sure the logs are collected. If an alert was indeed created, it should be in that directory.
