FLV_SETUP False Positive?


Recommended Posts


Just ran a full scan with MBAM, Database version: 3442, and it picked up the installer file for FLV flash player as a Trojan Downloader. I went ahead and quarantined the file, since I don't need the installer file anymore, but I'm concerned that this may be a false positive. (And, of course, concerned if it isn't!) It has been on the computer for more than a year, at least, and this is the first time MBAM complained.

Should I be concerned?

How do I get it evaluated by Malwarebytes if it has been quarantined?

Sorry for the delay -- it was a full scan and takes a while. Restored from quarantine, re-ran it in developer's mode, quarantined it again, and restarted again.

Here's the log:
