Whole lot of pup detections overnight???


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Since yesterday when everything was fine and after the latest database update. MB is suddenly detecting Android/PUP.Risktool.CallPay.lo  for 74 apps which includes apps like google play store, youtube, Weather&Radar, Hive, Google play services etc., which seems strange as I've not opened any emails or downloaded and run any new apps since the last MB scan.  Does anyone know if MB has changed it's scan rules which might be generating false positives.  Its more worrying because there are a good number of system apps listed as affected, and you can only disable them not delete.  I'm going to leave off doing anything until I hear back from you guys and your advice.

 

Thanks,

 

Robert

Hi,

Not clear on your reply, could you say a bit more?

This is a false positive -- it seems he's referring you to update the definition database manually.

Hi,

Oh right. Thanks. I have no idea what that is or how to do it :)

Open the Malaarebytes app, go to Settings -> Other -> Force update.

Hi,

Thanks for that.  update and scanned with no pups.  This has never happened to me before so took me by surprise and caused a bit of panic as I couldn't think how I had got infected so badly!  Hopefully all will be well now.  Cheers to both of you.

I was trying to Force Update but I kept clicking and nothing happened. Is there a reason? The system keeps showing me the last update time, which was almost 2 hours ago.
