Possible false positive: Networx.pid (Trojan.Goldun)

Hello Malwarebytes,

Specs:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.50

Database version: 5242

Windows 6.1.7600

Internet Explorer 8.0.7600.16385

Settings: (BTW: the malwarebytes report should include relevant settings information.)

Settings tab | Scanner Settings tab:

Checkboxes: all six checked.

Dropdowns: all three select "Show in results list and do not check for removal"

Please find attached mbam.exe /developer log of possible false positive for file: c:\programdata\softperfect\NetWorx\NetWorx.pid (Trojan.Goldun)

The detection is possible false positive because NetWorx.pid file size = 4 bytes (yes, four bytes) and apparently does not change.

FYI: the version of SoftPerfect Networx installed is v5.1.5 and NetWorx.pid is created/deleted when Networx is opened/closed.

Please investigate and reply with your findings.

Regards,

steve_str

Hello Malwarebytes,

Please find attached zip folder containing flagged file, c:\programdata\softperfect\NetWorx\NetWorx.pid

Since initial post the following have been noted:

1.) The NetWorx.pid (Trojan.Goldun) detection occurs with NetWorx v5.1.5 installed (as initially reported) and NetWorx v5.1.4 installed.

2.) When copy NetWorx.pid from c:\programdata\softperfect\NetWorx\NetWorx.pid to same location as c:\programdata\softperfect\NetWorx\NetWorx - Copy.pid, malwarebytes flags c:\programdata\softperfect\NetWorx\NetWorx.pid but does not flag c:\programdata\softperfect\NetWorx\NetWorx - Copy.pid.

3.) When copy NetWorx.pid from c:\programdata\softperfect\NetWorx\NetWorx.pid to different location, for example c:\new folder\NetWorx.pid, malwarebytes flags c:\programdata\softperfect\NetWorx\NetWorx.pid but does not flag c:\new folder\NetWorx.pid.

Because of 2.) and 3.) above, repeating my detection of NetWorx.pid (Trojan.Goldun) might require installing NetWorx.

Regards,
