Trojan.CobaltStrike - detected but impossible to remove


Recommended Posts

I did a scan with Malwarebytes and it detected the CobaldStrike Trojan.
It was quarantined and should have been removed when the computer was restarted.
After rebooting I ran another scan but the problem returned.
Again the threat has been quarantined; I repeated all this 4 times but the trojan is always detected by Malwarebytes.
Can someone explain to me how can I permanently delete this infection?

This is where Malwarebytes found the trojan:

File: 1
Trojan.CobaltStrike, C:\PROGRAMDATA\MALWAREBYTES\MBAMSERVICE\TMP\OSE.EXE-K.MBAM, Elimina al riavvio, 807, 932214, 0.0.0, , ame, , , 


Thank you.

Turn off scan for rootkits and you will not have this detection's as these are the files "collected/copied" by Malwarebytes during a rootkit scan when it sees a "forged" file. Meaning, reads through WinAPI differs from the contents read through low-level disk access. This doesn't always mean there's a rootkit present that forged this file, as there might be a lot of other reasons why a file can be seen as forged. 

Rootkit scanning does not need to be run on any regular basis.

It is recommend rootkit be turned on only where there is an issue for removing something with the normal scan. Rootkit is slightly more dangerous as it has to disable some whitelisting to remediate some rootkits.

Maybe once a month if really want to use rootkit. But honestly we rarely see rootkit files anymore and the newer engine can remove most of them anyways even without rootkit on.
