Are these Nirsoft tools false positives?


Recommended Posts

In many runs of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware over the years I've never seen any of Nirsoft's tools implicated before. But these are the only threats MBAM has found today:

Generic.Malware/Suspicious, C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\NIRSOFT PACK
ETC\PCANYPASS.EXE, No Action By User, [0], [392686],1.0.2655

PUP.Optional.PasswordViewer, C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\NIRSOFT PACK
ETC\ROUTERPASSVIEW.EXE, No Action By User, [324], [426047],1.0.2655

Generic.Malware/Suspicious, C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\NIRSOFT PACK
ETC\SNIFFPASS.EXE, No Action By User, [0], [392686],1.0.2655

I checked Nisoft's FAQ and its list of reported false positiives, but these three were not included. I've also emailed the Nirsoft author.

I haven't quarantined them yet, awaiting advice please.

FWIW, I've never used any of those tools, but one or more might come in handy some day.

Best wishes,
