Zygor Guides

Recommended Posts

I use Zygor Guides, which is a leveling guide for World of Warcraft and have used it for years without a single problem, now Malwarebytes  says parts of it are a rootkit which in my opinion is not the case. I have included the report.

Hi,

Thanks for reporting. Yes, it looks like a false positive. However, this is a generic rule that has been in the database for over a year. So I'm thinking something with Zygor guide's was updated and therefore it is now detected by us. We'll see what we can do on our end to avoid further wrongful detection. In the meantime, I recommend adding these detections to your exclusions list. Here's how: https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-1130
