Possible False Positive?

10 posts in this topic

Hello, I ran a full scan today and it said there is one threat located in my Steam games folder, specifically in the game folder for Audiosurf. And the file it found said it was a "Trojan.Agent.rf" which was found in the engine folder, and the file called "QuestViewer.exe". After this was found, I deleted the file and restarted as Malwarebytes requested, scanned again and was fine. I then did a system restore to about five days ago, ran another full scan, and the same file came up with the same threat definition. Can someone confirm if this is a false positive?

Thanks in advance.

My apologies. I was in a bit of a panic to find out if this was a false positive or not, but after reviewing the Audio Surf and Steam forums, it appears this file is apart of the game. Making this find a false positive. You can see so for yourself by searching for "QuestViewer.exe" (without quotes). Also, the file has already been removed. And after reading those instructions, would submitting a file without that file still provide useful information to resolving this false positive?

File is likely in mbam's quarantine cache. You can dequarantine it and then zip/attach it to your next reply.

No, the file is required. If you would, please open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and access the Quarantine tab. Once there, click on the file and then click Restore.

Now, navigate to the file's location and zip and attach it to your next reply so that our Research team may get the false positive corrected.

Thanks :)

Thanks for making this post Portal. I just finished a full scan of Malware Bytes and had the same file flagged. Was getting worried. After doing some googleing it does indeed look like this is a false positive. The file is a part of the game. Thanks again for making this post!
