RiskWare.IFEOHijack detected: Sysinternals ProcessExplorer

Recommended Posts

Hello,

current MBAM version
(Application Version 3.8.3.2965, Component Package 1.0.613, Detection Package 1.0.11680)

is going to detect legitimate Sysinternals "ProcessExplorer" as RiskWare.IFEOHijack
if ProcessExplorer is registered as replacement for standard Windows Task Manager.

Actually ProcessExplorer Version 16.21 is not yet whitelisted.

Pls. see attached log & screenshot (log is taken from another box but same behaviour, either Intel or AMD)
Mark Russinovich's "Process Explorer" is a legitimate tool that's been here for decades, giving a profound look under the hood.
When having the "Replace Task Manager" option enabled Malwarebytes recently (few days) started to flag those regkeys red.

I see the same result from MBAM verson 3.8.3. It is a false positive because Sysinternals Process Explorer is not malware.

See attached log file from MBAM scan.

The earlier version of MBAM never complained about these registry entries.
