False Positive - Malware.Heuristic.1001 - tnzext.dll


Recommended Posts



I just scanned my computer with a recently updated Malwarebytes and has suddenly detected tnzext.dll as Malware.Heuristic.1001. I'm fairly certain this is a false positive; I've uploaded the sample to VirusTotal with a clean result, but I want to check nevertheless to be sure.


The sample, as well as the log file, is compressed in a .zip file as attached. I will, although, paste the contents of the log file here at this post.


Hoping for your swift response. Thanks!





(I did two full scans prior to this result to make sure it wasn't a fluke.)
