Chrome detected as a trojan

Recommended Posts


On the 8/16/20 I received different alerts from Malwarebytes console, one was the one below from a machine

Trojan.Dropper < No action taken >         C:\Users\XXXXXXXXXX\Downloads\ChromeSetup (1).exe

Trojan.Dropper < No action taken >         C:\Users\XXXXXXXXXX\Downloads\ChromeSetup.exe

And this was coming from other 4 computers:

Trojan.Dropper Quarantined      C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Update\\GoogleUpdateSetup.exe

Trojan.Dropper Quarantined      C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Update\Download\{430FD4D0-B729-4F61-AA34-91526481799D}\\GoogleUpdateSetup.exe

Was Malwarebytes detecting a false positive that afternoon and a database update fixed the issue?

Thank you

Please update from your Management Console the Database for affected systems.

We confirmed this was a False Positive and have removed from detection moving forward. Apologies for any inconvenience.

The issue should no longer occur on or past Database version:

Please let us know if you are on this latest database or newer and still continue to receive detection's?
