avg detects a trojan in malwarebytes ?????

5 posts in this topic

hi to all

today i scanned my laptop like i allways do and AVG is showing this:

trojan horse PSW Banker5.ZOY in malwarebytes.exe

i have never seen this before until today

so i uninstalled it rebooted then started to downloaded it again from cnet

as soon as the download box came up avg comes up with this alert again i canceled the download

i had to reinstall winp and reinstall all my driver programs now this is showing up since i reinstalled malwarebytes before i found this on my laptop

i use AVG paid ver on my 2 computers. on my desktop malwarebytes is running fine and AVG finds no problems

with it.

anyone have any idea what is going on?????

if this is a false positive why is it not being detected on my desktop but is on this laptop?

i don't have but a few programs installed on my laptop

desktop is a different story

thanks in advance for any help

AVG is not being careful , we have notified them of their FP .

They have known for at least a few days , seems they are slow to fix these .
