HP Printer Update Detected as Trojan.Hexzone


Recommended Posts

cpe_scan_destination_update_hpu_001_003[1].exe appears to be part of an automatic update for my HP printer/scanner. It would have come from the "HP Update" program if it is. The file has been on my system for over a year and was only recently detected as a Trojan.

If you visit HP's website you can see that there is a similar file out there that can be manually downloaded. The names and sizes are however a little different.

This system is relatively clean (not much use before imaged a year ago, recently re-imaged) which is why I think it's a false positive. If I look at the properties the description says "HP Webpack" which is similar to other HP updates I've received.

I was unable to upload the file because it is too large (~21MB). The log is attached.

I am unable to duplicate this here.. The file is 29mb on hp's website and does not hit here. That detection is in your temporary internet files. Were you maybe using private browsing or a sandbox?

Can you possibly zip the file and attach it or upload it to one of the filesharing sites so we can get it?
