MKVEXTRACTGUI- falsely detected as alware


Recommended Posts

I have Malwarebytes Premium set up to do a complete scan every day at 05:00.


Today, for the first time, it flagged a file named MKVEXTRACTGUI- as malware.  It is an installer for MKVEXTRACTGUI.  I have had that file on my computer (in 3 different locations) for several years now, unmodified I think, and it has never been flagged before.


I attached both my MBAM scan logs as a file, as well as the file MKVEXTRACTGUI-, to this post.


I also uploaded MKVEXTRACTGUI- to virustotal just now, and nothing detected it as malware.


My guess is that MBAM's AI just got fooled.


Details from virustotal:



  • MKVExtractGUI-
  • MKVExtractGUI-
  • MKVExtractGUI 2 v2.3.0.0.zip
  • MKVExtractGUI- -PORTABLE.zip
  • MKVExtractGUI- (1).zip
  • Prog2 - MKVExtractGUI-
  • MKVExtractGUI-提取 MKV 字幕、音軌工具.zip
