Suspected False Positive "mdimon.dll" (XP SP3)


Recommended Posts

I purchased and own Malwarebytes Pro (MB). I have it set to check for updates hourly and perform a Quick Scan daily at 10:00 am (EST). After MB ran it scan this morning it told me that C:\Windows\System32\mdimon.dll was infected labeling it as Trojan.Hiloti

I allowed it to remove the file and I rebooted. I'm the IT Admin for my company so I have access to everyone's computer. So I then proceeded to get the same file from several other users computer - one that I just setup yesterday and hasn't even been on the Internet all - ALL of the mdimon.dll files came back with the same results - that they are infected.

Away, I'm pretty sure it is a false positive. As per this threads instructions I have ran MB in Developer mode and attached the log and the file zipped.

Thank you

Just to add, found this thread having just in the last 20 minutes got the same suspected false positive. I am on Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 Build 7601

Memory Modules Infected:

c:\Windows\System32\mdimon.dll (Trojan.Hiloti) -> No action taken.

Files Infected:

c:\Windows\System32\mdimon.dll (Trojan.Hiloti) -> No action taken.

mdimon.dll is signed by Microsoft and the sig is reported as OK.

Tested the file with Superantispyware and Antivir and both report it as being clean.
