False positive on Microsoft download: NeihausDeployment2006_11.exe


Recommended Posts


I'm seeing what I assume to be a false positive on a file that I downloaded from Microsoft in 2007.

It's passed Malwarebytes scans previously, and is unchanged from the original (I re-downloaded from Microsoft and compared MD5s).

Neither McAfee VirusScan or SuperAntiSpyware detect any problem with this file.

The file was originally downloaded from here:


It is a self-extracting archive, but when the contents are extracted (using WinRAR, not by executing it!), then Malwarebytes doesn't detect any malware in the contents.

This should have been fixed last night. Can you please update and let us know if its still detected?


You're correct - it's no longer detected. I'd updated late last night (UK time) and then it was detected in an overnight run. I didn't take into account the number of updates that you guys produce per day!
