False positive for Spyware.RedLineStealer from EML File Viewer Tool?


Recommended Posts

Hi there.

Back in April I installed FreeViewer EML File Viewer Tool (https://www.freeviewer.org/eml/) to view certain files.

A few days ago, MB flagged three files associated with this program - EMLREADER.DLL, MAILEXAMINERCOMMON.DLL, and MESSAGINGHELPER.DLL - as Spyware.RedLineStealer threats.

I quarantined the threats using MB. But this program was installed several months ago and MB did not report this issue until very recently.

Is this a false positive or is this a malicious program?

Be sure MB is up to date. Un quarantine the file and scan again.

If it is still detected please provide the scan log.

Thanks for the reply!

1. I updated MB. (MB appeared to update.)

2. Unquarantined the files and confirmed they were back in the program folder.

3. Re-ran the scan. Then re-ran it again about 15 minutes later to be safe.

4. No threats detected BOTH times.

5. The three files (all *.dll) flagged originally are attached to this reply in the .rar folder for your review.

6. I think that is a good thing? Please confirm.

I assume the program still works?

There was a false positive that was fixed as Spyware.RedLineStealer threats
