Malwarebytes didn't detect virus


Recommended Posts

I don't think Malwarebytes detected this virus. It got detected by about half of the engines on virustotal, but not by MBAM.

Here is the result from virustotal: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/559f591c811135028bdcb36ff5dd87a7b25abf4b35e1038151cd2efd48263bf5/detection

This probably isn't the right place to post this, but i don't know where else to.

Thanks.

Hello,
The reason is that this malware was or is too old. Or the kind of malware that does not fit into the update policy of Malwarebytes Antimalware. Malware examples may not be older than 3 months.
 

Well, look

It is also possible that just the specific Malware Protection/scan engine component didn't detect it but that one of the other modules which are more heuristics and behavior based might since VT only uses the scan engine to check files.  The Malware Protection/scan engine component actually makes up a very small part of what Malwarebytes Premium uses to detect threats and prevent infections.  It is a layered solution with many different methods to stop attacks and you can learn more about how Malwarebytes works by reviewing the information on this page.

In this particular case, since the file in question is a DLL, it can't self-execute (it would have to be an executable file such as an EXE, COM, SCR or other executable file format to do that) so it is probably designed to try and inject itself into another process or to be loaded by another piece of executable malware; behaviors which Malwarebytes should detect via other means such as Exploit Protection.

Does anybody know what it actually does/how it works?  I'm curious just because I still suspect that one of Malwarebytes' other components might actually detect this threat when it is actively attempting to infect a system (we'd likely need a dropper for it rather than just a DLL, as malware seldom shows up as just a single DLL file and usually starts with some kind of script/exploit or executable file to install/initiate).

Besides being known to Virus Total since 2013, and thus too old for Malwarebytes signature creation, it is a trojan and not a virus.

 

 

Fair enough. I'm not really too good with viruses and stuff.

Some further information, i found that in a shady pirated game when trying to install it.(this specifically

https://thepiratebay.org/torrent/8835063/Splinter.Cell.Blacklist-RELOADED.

  This equally shady website says what it does:

https://www.solvusoft.com/en/files/missing-not-found-error/dll/windows/ubisoft/uplay/uplay-r1-dll/

Please avoid such shady sites.  The site that supposedly indicates what the DLL is, is not about the information.  It about pushing crapware.  It is using the name of the DLL as its ploy to goad one into the crapware installation.
