(SOLVED) Malwarebytes reporting Trojan.Agent.ED within Superantispyware.exe!

Recommended Posts

I think you might have to speak with your fellow wizards over at MWB! I have two different computers on two different physical networks, both have MWB and SAS and MWB has quarantined SuperAntispyware.exe, reporting it as containing Trojan.Agent.ED. Both instances occurred 15 mins apart around 5pm EST today. Sounds to me like MWB erroneously reading an updated SAS definition file as a virus??

 

I have posted on MWB forums as well but right now I can't run SAS without removing the exe from quarantine and I'd like to be sure I should do that!

 

Thanks for your help.

Same problem here. I also had to shut down the service for SAS as it had one of my 4 core's maxed out (probably because MBAM was blocking parts of the program).

Hey all,

 

I've verified that MalwareBytes is indeed detecting SuperAntiSpyware.exe as a Trojan:

The good news is that it looks as if they are is already aware of the false detection and according to them it should be fixed in the next update:

Anyone who has quarantined SuperAntiSpyware.exe may have to reinstall after MalwareBytes has fixed the false detection.

The MWB issue has been fixed with their latest updates.

 

If SAS has been corrupted as a result of this then follow Gabes ( SAS Malware Research ) post above.
