Virus Total flagged Malwarebytes AdwCleaner download


Recommended Posts

I'm sure this is a hyper-sensitive scan result. I have Virus Total set to scan all downloads, to my surprise, your AdwCleaner triggered the following(below).
I found this to be humorous and not threatening at all. VT has flagged about 70% of the software that I've downloaded as having something suspicious.
Though, since I'm still using Windows 7 I have to take any/all flags with a sense of dread. But not this one. I disengage Ublock Origin on all Malwarebytes URLs, so you have my trust.
I'm simply reporting this to you for your own awareness. Also, maybe an explanation so that I can better understand how these AV engines generate false flags. I suspect that many of the VT warnings that I am getting, usually from only 1 out of 70 AV vendors, are false, and causing me unnecessary ulcers, hair loss, etc. But my AV/malware comprehension is 101 and therefore does not allow me the option to ignore a reported threat. Here's the report and URL...
rule UPX
        author = "kevoreilly"
        description = "UPX dump on OEP (original entry point)"
        cape_options = "bp0=$upx32+9,bp0=$upx64+11,action0=step2oep"
        $upx32 = {6A 00 39 C4 75 FA 83 EC ?? E9}
        $upx64 = {6A 00 48 39 C4 75 F9 48 83 EC ?? E9}
        uint16(0) == 0x5A4D and any of them
rule Amadey
        author = "kevoreilly"
        description = "Amadey Payload"
        cape_type = "Amadey Payload"
        hash = "988258716d5296c1323303e8fe4efd7f4642c87bfdbe970fe9a3bb3f410f70a4"
        $decode1 = {8B D1 B8 FF FF FF 7F D1 EA 2B C2 3B C8 76 07 BB FF FF FF 7F EB 08 8D 04 0A 3B D8 0F 42 D8}
        $decode2 = {33 D2 8B 4D ?? 8B C7 F7 F6 8A 84 3B [4] 2A 44 0A 01 88 87 [4] 47 8B 45 ?? 8D 50 01}
        $decode3 = {8A 04 02 88 04 0F 41 8B 7D ?? 8D 42 01 3B CB 7C}
        uint16(0) == 0x5A4D and 2 of them
 Thank You for Yo
ur time and effort.
