Virus Detected in Malwarebytes Chrome Extension?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm actually getting a similar report, but for a very different reason.  I was backing up my Chrome profile in order to cleanly install Windows, and all apps therein, and I received an error about the MBGC extension.  I allowed it as I was about to format that entire drive after making the backup, and I knew this was a FP.

After a clean install, during restore of my Chrome profile it came up again - this time I got a screenshot:

As you can see, I went ahead and told Defender to permanently ignore it.  But, I'd rather it was not detected in the first place....

Hmm, interesting.  It seems as if Defender's newest signatures have listed the MBGC extension as a Ransomware/Trojan.

I manually checked the folder in my Google profile and it no longer is detected.

Thanks @rakka
