I was wondering the same thing- Malwarebytes found it on my computer, too, and said that it was quarantined and removed successfully...

Did you rename Malwarebytes because itís sometimes necessary to fool Spyware or Virus? if so, you might end up with Malwarebytes detecting itself as an exploit.

EX: If you rename Mbam.exe to explorer.exe, you will orobably return the following message:

Heuristics.Reserved.Word.Exploit
