SnapDb & AutoHotkey Compiler False Positives


Recommended Posts

MWB reports SnapDb_ansi.exe and autohotkeysc.bin as containing trojan backdoors.

I cannot believe either of these harbour malware.

This only happens in XP SP-3, not in Windows-7 64-bit.

Please update mbam and scan again. This should of been fixed. If not please attach a scan log and the files.

It wasn't found on a scan, it just popped up: SnapDb twice, the Autohotkey one once.

The programmes were declared clean by Avast and MWMB after download.

Nonetheless, I'll update and scan again.

Ok let me know if they are detected again.

Thanks for reporting.

This came up again. Snapdb_ansi.exe is flagged as a trojan (but not Autohotkey).

I have this programme running on XP Home SP-3 and on Windows 7 Pro Sp-1 64-bit. It's clean on

the XP machine and a trojan on the Windows 7 machine according to MWB.

(There were also a half-dozen Epson utilities flagged, but according to the forums they're FPs,

so I've released them).

Please rescan and post the detection log.

Done so. Turns up nothing.

The Snapdb an Epson items didn't come up in a scan but from pop-up notices. I can't find anything about

Snapdb in the logs, they're all about Epson.

No, nothing to go on - I've deleted the file!
