Anti-Exploit False Positive: VLC 3.0.4 win32


Recommended Posts

Exploit payload file blocked         BLOCK           C:\Users\****\AppData\Local\Temp\vlc-3.0.4-win32.exe             ****       VLC Player           C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe   Attacked application: C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe; Parent process name: SpillmanClient.exe; Layer: Application Behavior Protection; API ID: 205; Address: ; Module: ; AddressType: ; StackTop: ; StackBottom: ; StackPointer: ; Extra:

Malwarebytes Management Console > Policy > ***** (Default) > Right Click > Edit > Anti-Exploit > Advanced > Application Behavior Protection
We do not have Application Behavior Protection enabled for Media Players.

Object Scanned: C:\users\****\AppData\Local\vlc-3.0.4-win32.exe
I can't add the scanned object to Anti-Exploit Exclusion List: Selected threat does not contain a valid payload checksum, it cannot be added into exclusion list.

The alert only occurs if we try to pay a video from the Spillman application with VLC. Playing the videos directly does not seem to be affected.

This issue started after the update on 9/20/2018.

Hi bhabel,

Thanks for posting in a separate thread. The other thread in the forum was dealing with a false positive with VLC player which has been fixed. But yours looks like a conflict with another product from the looks of it.

It looks like you have the Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Business version being managed by Malwarebytes Management console. I will send you a PM with details on how we can proceed to fix this for you. Thanks.
