False positive USBFix.exe

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

USBFix (created by Chiquitine29) is a french software that is used to disinfect USB flash disks.

USBFix.exe is the installation file of this software : it is detected as Trojan.FakeAlert by MBAM, but it is a false positive.

It can be downloaded here : http://sd-1.archive-host.com/membres/up/11...3188/UsbFix.exe

Here is a virustotal scan of the file : http://www.virustotal.com/fr/analisis/a14b...4bc811dd8df04e0

There is only 2/38 detections. I think it is due to "process.exe". This is an element of the tool that is discerned by some antiviruses as RiskTool. It is a virus, but an utility intended to put an end to processes.

Here is the MBAM developer log :
