Trojan.Downloader False Positive (W.exe in Temp Folder)


Recommended Posts

Hi, I got the heavy pants this morning by a "Trojan.Downloader" reported by Malwarebytes in my temp folder that, upon restoring to upload to VirusTotal, turned out to be a file created by SysInternals. I'm sure y'all know that SysInternals is Microsoft's deep dive suite of software to watch Windows processes and startup etc. W.exe is described in its properties as a Rootkit detection utility and is signed by Microsoft Corporation. Being as it said no malicious items found I'm sure it's just being abundantly cautious. Thought y'all might want to whitelist this guy.
