MOBIB Reader: Malware.Sandbox.4


Recommended Posts

Heya, just dropping by here to say that MalwareBytes decided to catch my interest... by falsely flagging a registry key and a file as malicious.


It doesn't really help that there's no information, aside from an article talking about what that name means.

MOBIB Reader is a software that interfaces with STIV-MIVB's website:  


User wants to check their trips and clicks "I have the software installed"
Website rings the reader software to ask for details about their STIB transport card once the user inserted it into their card reader
Reader software gives details to website, and website shows them to the user

They also talk to each other if the individual buys trips:
Upon confirming that the trips were paid for, user is instructed to load them into their MOBIB card
User gives the go ahead, website talks with the reader software and says to load the trips into their card
Reader software does that, and notifies the website when it's done
Website goes to the "you're all done" page and does the equivalent of "It is now safe to turn off your computer"

So yeah, I'm not sure what MalwareBytes thinks its doing by falsely flagging this as malicious, but I've attached the ZIP file with the report and file.

What a weird event.
