Powerpoint - Exploit Office WMI abuse blocked


Recommended Posts

I am having an issue after a recent Malewarebytes update.

     When I open a powerpoint file, malewarebytes closes it down as a RTP detection event stating:

     Exploit = Malware.Exploit.Agent.Generic

     Location = ComSpec=c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe

     Technique = Exploit Office WMI abuse blocked


This only happens when I open a powerpoint file directly. I can open powerpoint alone and it is fine. I can also open a ppt file in running powerpoint without issue.

I have run MSERT.exe, adwcleaner_8.3.0, RogueKiller_portable all without finding any issues.

This is PowerPoint 2013.

What can I do to fix this?

Does Malewarebytes have a issue with powerpoint 2013?
