Malware.Packer


Recommended Posts

I have been using Malwarebytes for a few months now and find it a great bit of software.

Because I have tried to follow all the instuctions given in the sticky 'so why did I get infected in the first place' the scans usually come up with no infections.

However the latest scan showed one infection:

'Files Infected:

C:\Program Files\Ulead Systems\Ulead VideoStudio 10\Vfx_plug\Box4.vfx (Malware.Packer) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully'

Because I only usually use Video Studio when I am not connected to the internet I am at a loss to know how the infection got there. Can I assume whoever distributed this malware ensured it was placed in the most unlikely place ? What is a Malware Packer?

I suspect this was a false positive. Malware.Packer refers to how the file was compressed as certain compression routines are used frequently by malware makers to create malicious files.

Please refer to this post: Read before reporting a false positive!

and post the info here: False Positives so a developer can take a look and correct the detection.

Thanks :) .
