MBAM 3 detects Nikon Image Format as Malware?


Recommended Posts


I recently ran a full scan of my entire computer yesterday. There were surprisingly 67 detected threats! But when it was done and I checked, almost all of these "threats" were not actual malware. 56 of them are .NEF images, which are Nikon camera file format images. Unless something has come and infected these files, I can safely say it's not malware. Others, in C:\Windows and C:\Intell, seemed to have been actual malware which I then removed, but registry keys which I did not know if were malware which I quarantined.

Does MBAM3 have a problem with NEF files? A quick google search shows some threads on other places stating that NEF files are detected as malware & even blocked from transfer due to MBAM.

Anyway, I attached the log. I replaced some personal information with ****, and I will find it hard to attach any of the files mentioned since they are personal photos and include both me and other people.
