Malwarebytes and avcenter.exe


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Malwarebytes is detecting Avira's avcenter.exe as a trojan (trojan.agent) on folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\AntiVir Desktop. I sent the file to Virustotal and only 2 antivirus say it is a virus. Is this a false positive?

Malwarebytes sent the file to quarentine and now i don't know if Avira is working as it should.

As a remark, neither Superantispyware, Windows Defender or Spybot flagged that file and my computer is running fast without problems.

What to do?

Thanks.

I just downloaded new updates to Avira after seeing this post and didn't get any detection from MBAM.

My file version of avcenter.exe is 10.00.12.28

File date is 2/22/2010

File size is 381K

MD5 is 41769d31ce9bb518aceabebf4bd4f675

No detections from VirusTotal or Jotti

I'm on Win7 x64 Pro with MBAM 1.46 DB number 4339 that downloaded at a little after 11:00 AM PDT this morning.

I'm using Avira 9, not 10. Maybe Swagger is using 9 also. The avcenter.exe file is different.
