Process Hollowing - Excel - Potential False Positive


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Get a process hollowing block when trying to add a filter to an existing Excel 2016 sheet.  Just one user experiencing and file works fine on other PCs.  No exploits found on virustotal and can't imagine what part of adding a filter would look remotely like process hollowing attemps but maybe there's a very sneaky hacker out there?

Latest definitions loaded, how can I upload the file itself or one of those zipped detection reports?

Thanks for your help,


Kind regards,

Hi there,

No it was still enabled, does that mean I'm not getting updates on this or something else?  Am on a managed environment but am set to auto update from cloud at the highest frequency.

My other machines also show as enabled but somehow don't flag the activity as an attempt at process hollowing?
