Recommended Posts



File Name : register.exe

File Size : 65536 byte

File Type : PE32 executable for MS Windows (console) Intel 80386 32-bit

MD5 : 9c88a3edd2e88bf2d7db952679ca5116

SHA1 : 81dfef0f3e10aec258a69f536f3e8576160f510f

Ran it at various online virus scanners.. a few declared Malware; especially McAfee.. On VIRUS TOTAL has 1 possible and 1 positive out of 36 scanners.

Ran it through Malwarebytes from the file's quarantine position and mbam.exe /developer mode didn't let a peep. As you can see from screen clip 2 above, MBAMPro declared it a trojan when installing it from the packed download.

The ANUBIS file is in PDF format:

So is this a false positive?? (Database 5436 / Also hit on yesterdays various databases.

This seems to be the one. Downloaded from hxxp://download.cnet.com/Registry-Cleaner/3000-2086_4-10844171.html?tag=mncol;3 - matches the picture...

Thanks LOON3R, for downloading and zipping it for Bruce.. (and me :welcome:).. I had to go grocery shopping.. I'd already wasted two hours on preparing/investigating the file; I didn't have the time.

Let me add that just because a download site claims something does not have spyware or whatever, this does not mean that some application will detect it a such based on that applications parameters.

All vendors use their own set of parameters for determining what is or is not classified as one thing or another.

This should be fixed now.

You're quite welcome; Bruce..

@Tom: Always a pleasure to be able to return some of the assistance you always give us in Suspect Users.. Since Bruce said, "This should be fixed now." I make the assumption it was a false hit and MBAMPro was tweaked to make in NOT so.. :welcome:

EDIT: Unpacked said program and installed and used same with no problems or warnings.. - Thanks!
