Two possible false positives?


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

This morning after fearing a Blackhat SEO attack, I ran a Malwarebytes scan and found the following:


Submission of both files to Virustotal gave me no malicious results. I can provide samples from quarantine, if necessary. Could someone please advise on both? I notice the vcredist executable has been submitted by other users, but I see nothing about the one hiding in the installer directory... Thanks for any help!

Awesome. Thanks very much for this... Just to be clear, though, before I restore from quarantine: Does this mean that these scan results were both false positives, and that I should not worry about them? I'm trying to decide if I need to panic and reformat/change all passwords right now, but I don't want to do that if I don't have to.

Thank you very, very much for the reassurance nosirrah. Please, no need for apologies, either. You guys at MBAM are among the best when it comes to speedy response, helpful advice, and effective tools. Nothing to apologize over! I'm sorry if I blew a small issue out of proportion with panicky posts :D Thanks again for the help!
