Trojan.MalPack - False Positive?

Recommended Posts

So my computer restarted itself while I was out of the room today and I was unable to determine what initiated the shutdown in the event manager, since it didn't seem to be related to any updates.

I decided to run a custom scan of my C drive including file system scan, and it turned up 2 results, both exactly the same file, one in program files, and one in appdata.

Nothing else was found, memory was clean, scanning the files individually with Avast says they're harmless.

I'm going to see if MB can remove them and then do a complete scan of all my drives (almost 2TB of data) overnight, see if it turns anything else up.

Does anyone think there is reasonable cause for concern here or does it look like a false positive?

I'm generally a very careful person, last full scan was a month ago, turned up clean, and I can't remember anything strange happening since then, no unknown downloads or suspicious attachments.

I run MB Free (for manual scans), Avast Antivirus, and Comodo Firewall.

Picture & log of scan results attached.
