MB 4.2 finds Spyware.RedLineStealer in ADGUARDSVC.EXE?

Recommended Posts


Today the Malwarebytes scan found 6 times Spyware.RedLineStealer malware in several Adguard components.

I don't believe that Adguard is malware.

I have added adguardsvc.exe which is one of the items reported by malware. Can you please check and verify if this really is malware or a false positive?

Hi @Chinaski1

This False Positive was fixed on last Friday. You can ask the customers to make sure they have the latest MalwareBytes database installed by simply right clicking MalwareBytes tray icon and then Check for Updates.

Anyone who had Adguardsvc.exe quarantined should restore it from quarantine and do another MalwareBytes scan to make sure it is not detected anymore what should be the case.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused.
