SAS Does not detect getbooks.exe

Recommended Posts

Hi, apologies if this is not the correct location to post this but I couldn't see where else to put it given the forum titles.


Anyway, I am running Windows 7 64 bit SP3 and have SAS Pro installed, this morning I noticed an exe running in the process explorer of the task manager called GetBooks.exe*32 and when I googled it it's listed as an ad tracker / trojan. It also gets a hit on the SAS webpage on the first page of google results but when the link is clicked there is no reference to GetBooks. Also, searchng the site does not bring back any results either.


I then ran a complete system scan and it was not reported as a threat. I have now removed it manually but I thought I should bring it to your attention. The GetBooks.exe was located in "C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\GetBooks"
