false positive on 5 yr old AVG files?

Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes 3.6.1 claims that there are threats on my system, these files are 5 years old, why are they saying Trojan.Agent.Generic unless it's false-positive?

And I think the .jpg files are also false-positive for RiskWare.ExtensionMismatch, as the only .jpg in the Recycle Bin were created using my Android phone.

Thanks for reporting this amccombs

 

Confirmed the task detection is a false positive and will get fixed on the next update cycle today.
