Exploit Office WMI Abuse Blocked


Recommended Posts

I agree with OneTime that this is not a good thing.  The exploit indicates that MSWord is trying to run C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe and that is a command prompt that could allow another program to run.  Turning off this alleged exploit protection would let that CMD run.  I have run several scanners and nothing is coming up.  I also got a safe mode notice on the restart of MSWord.  

I do appreciate Malwarebytes and all that it has stopped and protected me with.  This is either a quirk in the scanner or a real threat and turning off something that is protecting me seems to go against the purpose of both the product and my wishes to be protected.

Until this is resolved as a false positive, I am NOT disabling this feature.  There is a related post at this link and they should be merged.
