False positives in Diablo uninstall apps

4 posts in this topic

Hello. I would like to report two false positives generated by MBAM. I am using the latest version. The log file is the following.

============================

============================================

Now, bnetunin.exe and diabunin.exe come straight from the original Diablo cd from Blizzard. Those files have been the same since 1996, which is the game's release date, and I can confirm they are definitely not viruses but the uninstall utilities for Diablo, and respectively the Battle.net service. That becomes more apparent since MBAM links the two files with their registry entries precisely where they should be, HKLM/....../CurrentVersion/Uninstall. Thank you in advance.

Edit: I updated in one hour ago, but I just noticed a 1101 database, so instead of doing another 1:10 hour scan.. I just scanned those two files. Still detected as viruses.
