false positive?

Recommended Posts

Just looking for help on this recent detection.  Using Mbytes Endpoint Protection.  Is this a real threat or false positive?  Seems like maybe an Adobe Reader registry entry of some sort.  Mbytes quarantined this.  Anyone seen this?  Many thanks.

It's an older detection (~2016). I would say real threat but just a remnant as it didn't link to an executable. Just a registry value that doesn't belong on the system as Adobe Reader doesn't use this startup value (or any startup value AFAIK)

Hope this helps, if you have further questions. Feel free to attach the full Malwarebytes log to be reviewed.

Regards
