False Positives: Adware.FileTour.BatBitRst


Recommended Posts

This morning when Malwarebytes did its daily scan I was surprised when it claimed that Adware.FileTour.BatBitRst had been detected in a handful of files, as I think that all of the files have been on my machine for some time without ever having been previously flagged. I suspect that the Malwarebytes threats database has just been updated and that this has introduced a new false positive. The files that were flagged were:

C:\\USERS\\JOHN HALL\\DOWNLOADS\\WRAR550.EXE
C:\\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\\ALL USERS\\APPLICATION DATA\\MICROSOFT\\NETWORK\\DOWNLOADER\\QMGR0.DAT
C:\\PROGRAMDATA\\APPLICATION DATA\\MICROSOFT\\NETWORK\\DOWNLOADER\\QMGR0.DAT
C:\\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\\ALL USERS\\APPLICATION DATA\\MICROSOFT\\NETWORK\\DOWNLOADER\\QMGR1.DAT
C:\\PROGRAMDATA\\APPLICATION DATA\\MICROSOFT\\NETWORK\\DOWNLOADER\\QMGR1.DAT
C:\\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\\ALL USERS\\MICROSOFT\\NETWORK\\DOWNLOADER\\QMGR0.DAT
C:\\PROGRAMDATA\\MICROSOFT\\NETWORK\\DOWNLOADER\\QMGR0.DAT
C:\\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\\ALL USERS\\MICROSOFT\\NETWORK\\DOWNLOADER\\QMGR1.DAT
C:\\PROGRAMDATA\\MICROSOFT\\NETWORK\\DOWNLOADER\\QMGR1.DAT

The first item is the installation file for WinRAR 5.50, an archive zipper/unzipper that I installed and have been using since February with no ill effects. The others were I believe downloaded as part of the monthly automatic Windows Update (I'm running Windows 7 32-bit).

Hello,

This was an FP, but it was fixed 8 hours ago or so. Make sure you have a latest database. FileTour adware is using a BitsAdmin service to download its components so that's why you see QMGR files being detected, that is a part of BitsAdmin flush procedure.
