False Positive on OpenOffice Updater?


Recommended Posts


got a Threat Detection this morning after booting up. MBAM quarantined the folder 'OpenOffice Updater' which seems to be empty, at least after removing it from quarantine and taking a look!? Have to admit it's odd that this folder is next to the regular 'OpenOffice' folder inside /AppData and not inside it?!

Still a false positive?

This isn't a false positive. OpenOffice doesn't install this folder. This one is often installed as a part of an Adware bundle. The reason why this folder might be empty is because the adware file inside got deleted already. We only added detection for this folder since recently, that's why you suddenly get this detection :)
