Malware.packer.gen on a non-existent tmp file
by danawenco - 5/27/10 3:49 PM
I got a "malware.packer.gen" threat from my Malwarebytes Anti malware complete scan last night on a tmp file.
I didn't take any action and exited MBAM, went to that location, and couldn't find the file. So I did another complete scan (without updating the db version) with MBAM, and the second scan came out clean.
During both scans I only had one firefox browser running (same web page), and had no other application running.
Is there any way to figure out if this is a FP, since I can't even find that file? And, can I be sure that my system is clean once I've done a few complete scans (in regular mode and safe mode) with a few AV products?
I have Windows Vista SP2. Thank you very much for your help.
