Backdoor.quasar false positive?


Recommended Posts

This morning, Mbam tells me that the scan it ran overnight found two files (a .zip and an EXE inside it) infected with Backdoor.Quasar.

It seems a little odd because the files have been on my PC since March (about 8 months) and no previous scan has detected any issue with them.  Nor I have recently extracted the .zip or run the contained EXE (modified date is about a year ago), so something else would have had to infect these already existing files, as opposed to downloading already-infected files - does that make sense?

Anyway, when I run a scan now, Mbam finds nothing, even if I specifically scan the .zip file.  (I haven't quarantined the files yet.)  Also, a McAfee scan shows no virus either.

I dunno how much it matters, but the files themselves are from a publisher I trust - proprietary files of my one of my clients.

I'm attaching a couple of files here, in case it's helpful.

  • Scan log.txt is the result of my current / clean Mbam scan, specifically targeting the .zip file.
  • Scan report.txt is a report from when the two files were detected overnight.

What (if anything) should I do?
