Well, I didn't think that the Maptools Suite was THAT archaic, but I guess I was wrong. Fresh install of MalwareBytes, because I'm observing some malware like behavior. Unfortunately, it didn't get any hits on any actual bad stuff, but it did tick off Maptools as unrecognized.

Hi,

This is detected by our MachineLearning engine, which helps to protect even better against 0day threats. Unfortunately, as this is a heuristic engine, it's possible False Positives happen. Also see here for more explanation: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/238670-machinelearninganomalous-detections-and-explanation/
Thanks for reporting these, as this helps to finetune the engine, so these won't be detected in the future anymore.

This should be fixed by now. Please give it some time (max 10 minutes) in order to have it populate, so detection won't happen anymore.

I already read that post before I created a new post.
 

Thanks for your help!

Hey! Since MalwareBytes didn't detect anything, I'm also going to try SpyHunter and Spybot. Are there any other big malware scanners I should try as well, before I give up?

There used to be a forum to help people track down malware back in the day. Does anything like that still exist today?
