Malwarebytes blocking Excel Add-In Macro


Recommended Posts

We use a query tool called Showcase (by HelpSystems), which has a macro-based add-in for Excel. Starting today, MalwareBytes Cloud is blocking users from opening .xlsm files that call Showcase macros as "Malware.Exploit.Agent.Generic".

I'm not sure how to get the logs that everyone else seems to post from the cloud dashboard, but here's a sample detection:

Detection Name:Malware.Exploit.Agent.Generic

Action Taken:blocked


Scanned At:12/04/2020 11:14:34 AM

Endpoint: XXXXX.ourdomain.tld

Location: Mapped-Network-Drive\Path\filename.xlsm

Group Name:Default Group

Affected Applications:Microsoft Office Excel
