Oculus on Android - false positive?

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I'm on Android, Samsung Galaxy S7.

Malwarebytes runs and scans automatically, and today I received a notification I wanted to verify here first:

Ocululs (Gear VR) infected with Android/Trojan.Dropper.Agent.tos

I haven't used Oculus in a while but intend to use it again in the future, so I don't want to remove it if I don't have to.

Is this likely to be a false positive?

If it is real, could someone have hacked the Oculus update servers? Or how else would this self-updating app have become infected? I try to take good care of my phone and keep it clean...

Thanks!

The exact same thing happened to me today with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5. I'm not sure if it was an update the app had or something but I use it regularly and definitely don't want to remove it from my device but I want to keep my phone Malware and Trojan free so if anybody has a solution please let me know.

Hi @semmelbroesel, @Howler89,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  This issue has been resolved and will no longer be detected in future database versions.  If for any reason this is still detected after tomorrow, please let me know.

Thanks again,

Nathan

Thanks for the reply.

So just to put my mind at ease, can you officially confirm that it was a false positive and not detecting an actual detection?
