Hi, I also received a warning when I ran a Malwarebytes scan this morning and guess what?

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.36
Database version: 2173
Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3

24/05/2009 07:04:00
mbam-log-2009-05-24 (07-03-50).txt

Scan type: Quick Scan
Objects scanned: 75526
Time elapsed: 3 minute(s), 13 second(s)

Memory Processes Infected: 0
Memory Modules Infected: 0
Registry Keys Infected: 1
Registry Values Infected: 0
Registry Data Items Infected: 0
Folders Infected: 0
Files Infected: 0

Memory Processes Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Memory Modules Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Registry Keys Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Terminal Server\Install\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (Backdoor.Bot) -> No action taken.

Registry Values Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Registry Data Items Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Folders Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Files Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

A quick Google search brought me to this thread.

I believe its a false positive, (note the database version), additional scans using Avira, SpyBot, and RootkitRevealer shows a clean bill of health.

I've checked the registry key concerned and the entry is blank.

Think I will choose to ignore it and see if Malwarebytes still detects a problem after the next database update.

Anyone else getting this warning?
