Windows Installer 5ee5.msi (Trojan.Agent.ED)

4 posts in this topic

Ran a MBAM scan this morning and it reported a trojan: Windows Installer, 5ee5.msi (Trojan.Agent.ED).

What is this? Is it a false positive? I can't find any information on it by searching the web. Thanks in advance.

Hello and :welcome:

If you think it could be a False Positive (FP) see below.

The experts will need some more information in order to determine if that's the case.

Please follow the instructions in this sticky topic >>HERE<<.

Then, please start a new post with the requested information in the FP section of the forum >>HERE<<.

The MBAM engineers will analyze the file and correct the FP detection, if needed. :)

Thanks :)

Updated MBAM definitions last night and ran it again, but no detection this time. I investigated the file properties for 5ee5.msi and it turns out it is the installer for the Norton Online Backup program. I guess someone at Malwarebytes figured this out during the day yesterday and updated the definitions. Thanks for the info about handling false positives.
