welcom to this forum what you can do is to fully update the Malwarebytes program reboot the computer and run another scan ; then post the reports from that scan for someone to check for you ?

it is possible for it to be a 'false positive '..
when did you last update the Spybot definitions ? If memory serves, I think some people are 'moving away' from trusting that program and are utilising other programs for their protection
as to the Malwarebytes scan, I think it a more preferable idea to run it while you are off line so the computer can concentrate on the scan
Have you considered the use of Superantispyware yet?

You can set Spybot to Advanced view, then click on tools, then click on View Report. That page will list a lot of options of what should be included in the report and it can be quite detailed. I think all you want is to have it show the infections that were found, so you should only have the box checked for "Include results of last check in report". Then click on "View Report" next to the green arrow on top. That will bring up the report and will list many things about the Spybot program that probably won't be too helpful here. I have not had it find anything on my system so I do not know but I am guessing that after the Spybot program info in the report, it will list the things it found and that would be the section of it you might want someone to look at. I would just highlight that part of the report and then copy it and then paste it into a post here.
After checking the Spybot forum, it seems to me the finding of Virtumonde.sdn is probably a false positive

They do have atleast one form of the false positive for this set to be fixed in their June 24th update.
How long have you been getting this picked up by Spybot?

Since you are not having any problems with the computer and Malwarebytes is not picking this up and Spybot did not pick it up before the June 17th update that has been known to cause false positives on this one, I would lean towards it being a false positve and try not to worry about it. I would wait until after the June 24th update and see what happens when you scan then.
In the meantime, I would also download and run SuperAntiSpyware just to confirm there isn't anything harmful on your computer. Since none of the programs are running realtime protection, there is no reason to be concerned about running too many of them. Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware find different things quite often, you should have both.

Scan looks good so I agree, try to quit worrying
This was the scan result. Doesn't look like anything serious. So unless it's a very elusive trojan, I think it's probably a false positive.
