Potential false-positive (HPUSBFW.EXE)

Recommended Posts



the attached ZIP file contains HPUSBFW.EXE which has been on my computer since 'the beginning' and seems to be a part of some HP utilities (HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool), but has only been flagged as malicious today.

Do you have the log showing the detection? I am not getting a detection.

You can find Scan and Protection logs within the Malwarebytes 4 program in the following location




RTP stands for Real-Time Protection and is where automatic protection operations would normally be logged




If you click on the View option you should get something similar to the following with other options available.
