'lpaq5.exe' identified as Malware.Packer


Recommended Posts

Ran Malwarebytes for the first time and it identified file lpaq5.exe from an old install of PeaZip (open-source file archiver) as 'Malware.Packer'

Googling it, I came across a note on PeaZip's own Changelog, from a couple of years ago:


2008 03 15

* PeaZip 1.11b (Windows only)

Original lpaq1 and lpaq5 executables were compressed with upack and could lead to false positive detection from some antivirus products, so they were recompiled from sources and compressed with UPX instead than with upack to avoid this annoyance. PeaZip and PeaZip Portable packages for Windows were consequently rebuilt (1.11b release) with new lpaq executables.

Yeah, I should probably update the app, but it's still a false positive. B)
