Where was Avast when a Trojan appeared?
« on: May 05, 2012, 04:19:18 AM »
Below, is my log from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, that appeared immediately after I installed new, updated software from cnet.com, this evening. There is no record of it in my paid Avast. Where were you????

Florida, not a detection software is perfect. As you can see, this time, MBAM take a false positive (clean file flagged as infected).
Other time, it could happen with avast! :) Although, I hope not ;D
