Hey guys, the latest MBAM update has started detecting this on my computer:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.43

Database version: 3462

Windows 6.0.6001 Service Pack 1

Internet Explorer 7.0.6001.18000

Apparently "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\PTECH" is a generic PlayTech registry key, which will exist if you install any PlayTech casino. There are a bunch of online poker sites that use the Playtech software engine, which makes up the online poker network called "iPoker". More info found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Playtech. Anyways, I do play some online poker and have two of these sites installed (Poker Plex and NoblePoker), both of which use the Playtech casino/gaming software.

My question is, is there a chance that this detection could be a F/P?

FWIW, the last scan I did was on Dec 29th, and everything came up clean then.

If this is not a F/P, is this something I need to be really worried about? Will it pose as a serious threat to me or my computer?

And lastly, will quarantining and deleting this registry key cause any problems with running the online poker software?

Thanks for the help!

Hey guys, was this detection just fixed in todays update? Because I just updated to the latest database (database version: 3466) and did a scan, and everything came up clean this time.

I did not delete or quarantine the infected registry key from before prior to this.

Any confirmation from the MBAM team would be awesome.

Anyways, Happy New Years guys!

Kind regards,
