VirTool.Agent.Gen for keytool.exe

Recommended Posts

This popped up today. Seems like several others have it too since yesterday. Didn't come from a scan from the mbam screen. It just magically happened while I was out walking the dog. I do have PUP turned on.

I can't give you a developer log since I don't know how to make mbam run in developer mode and use the right click context menu to scan it. I don't want to run a full scan of the system since it takes hours.

If you can tell me how to run a scan on the file from the context menu with developer, I'll do that.

I ran a scan and it found and quarantined VirTool.Agent.Gen I later read that it would be fixed (false positive) with the next update. However, when I tried to use the "Restore All" feature in the quarantine section, the VirTool.Agent.Gen just keeps reappearing in the quarantine section. Any ideas why?

I am using version 1.50.1.1100 and database 5512. Initially a scan found and quarantined VirTool.Agent.Gen Then I read these posts that said the next update will take care of it (false positive?). So, after i updated the database, i went into the quarantine section and hit "restore all". VirTool.Agent.Gen disappeared from quarantine. Then i re-scanned (using the new database), and when i checked the qarantine section, VirTool.Agent.Gen was listed again. ??

Yes it was but has been fixed days ago..

Did you actually go to the file location and see if the file is there?

just checked, now it shows to be in the same location, but instead of named "keytool.exe" it is named "keytool". even if it has been restored properly, don't understand why it keeps re-appearing in the quarantined area (after it was restored). at one point, i actually uninstalled malwarebytes program and reinstalled. after updating database, ran a scan and bingo.... there it was again in the quarantined area. if it is a false positive, i can add it to ignore list, but there seems to be a glitch somewhere.
