VBALink website detected as malware (false positive??)

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am new to the forum.

Malwarebytes premium seems to be flagging the website vbalink.info (the site of a legitimate and well used emulator program of the gameboy advance) as an exploit. Virustotal reports no threats on the website when scanned, also the file was only flagged by 1 antivirus engine on virustotal as malware (I'm 99% certain the file is safe as I have used it before). Can anyone shed any light on this? VBALink is a modified version of Visualboy advance which is a legitimate GBA emulation program. Their site is being detected by malware bytes. Any light shed on this is appreciated.

Thank you. The site is blocked due to other available files that use a shellcode exploit.

At this time if you trust the site you can add it to your own local exclusions and we would then no longer block the site.

Thank you

Hi. Thankyou for the reply.

Does this mean that my machine is infected? Am I in danger, or has malwarebytes successfully blocked the threat (from the site)? As I mentioned I have used the emulator program fine before (I scanned it with virustotal and it was clean - the actual emulator) does this mean the site is hosting malicious files? Not necessarily the emulator? MB premium scans report my pc is clean. Am I safe?

Kind regards

Calum

No, this is just a site block. It does not mean your computer is infected at all. We are simply blocking the site due to the availability of software for download that might potentially be a threat to your system.
