@ yardbird and all

It seems like this is happening to a lot of people.

Yardbird is the third I think in the beta thread to get this hit and then two people below have it as well.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.p...mp;#entry104547

I am also curious to know if its a false positive and if it is if it can be removed from quarantine?

Same result for me. The identified folder shows as empty and dates from the initial windows load date in 2004.

Just an FYI not related to the beta, I've just had Jean (JeanInMontana) get in touch with me with an MBAM log, and one of the F/P's was the same as listed above;

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Index (Rogue.SmartProtector) -> No action taken

I've asked for a developers log.

/edit

I should mention, she's not using the beta - she's using the "normal" version (not sure why she didn't just post in the forums .......)

@ Mystery

Thanks, keep us posted <_<

Any idea if it might be a FP at this point yet or no?

Well,

I scanned my desktop PC with XP PRO SP 3 too and got the same result:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Dati applicazioni\Microsoft\Media Index (Rogue.SmartProtector) -> No action taken.

I scanned my laptop running Vista with SUPERAntiSpyware free and Windows Defender which found no malware.

I think it is a false positive.

I'll put into the ignore list this folder until a fix will be issued.

Thank you <_<

I just did an update and scan 10 minutes ago, before i saw these posts that there might find a false positive. Here is the log. Is this a false positive? If so, is it something that is needed and can i restore it from the Quarantine file?

The folder that is supposedly infected is named Media Index. As was pointed out a bit earlier, it is an empty folder. Rogue.SmartProtector is the name of the malware.

I am fixing this right now .

Sorry that i don't know much about computers, so i have to ask. When you say you are fixing it right now, that means it is a false positive, and by you fixing it , it means that scans done after the fix will not pick this up to quarantine and deleat it? If that is the case since i quarantined and deleted it from my scan, is that quarantine something i should restore.

Also, from here http://www.superantispyware.com/blog/ it says

New Rogue : Smart Protector

July 30th, 2009

Smart Protector is a new/updated rogue. We have updated our definitions to detect and remove all traces of this rogue.

which makes it sound as if superantispyware is saying it is not a false positive.

You can remove it from quarantime (aslong as you restore it, and don't actually delete it <_<)

It's safe to restore it from quarantine then? :unsure:
