Half-Life 2 Possible False Positive


Recommended Posts


I was recently doing a full scan of my PC when MBAM reported a detection on my HDD dedicated for video games. The file in question is located in my Steam Library's files for Half-Life 2, under, "COMMON\HALF-LIFE 2\BIN\DMXCONVERT.EXE" . The type of malware is called, "Malware.AI.4098362766." This made me curious as it's located in my Steam files, not somewhere malware typically is known to be harbored, but then again anything's possible. I scanned the folder with Windows Security, and nothing came back positive. I believe this might be a false positive. I ran the file in question through VirusTotal, and it shows two engines detecting it (https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/d8dce9bae7239b200e4f5559106625e5f1649d4f97be5407bb94855f4b89059e/detection). I noticed that Malwarebytes isn't picking it up on Virustotal. I was wondering if I could get a confirmation that this is indeed malware or just a false positive. If I could have a technician, admin, or otherwise verify this for me, that would be greatly appreciated. I've attached screencaps and the .txt extraction below. Thanks, and I hope to hear from you A.S.A.P.
