I have a windows 7 operating system and have mcafee total protection as well as MBAM (malwarebytes anti-malware).
On startup of my machine and occasionally when running, mcafee informs me it has quarantined a trojan - Artemis! - 9E52F321A396. This file is continually re-created, and has been quarantined multiple times.
I don't know if this is a false positive or not.
Other points to note -
I see no other signs of an infection.
MBAM does not flag this file as a trojan.
The file is edited so that when i startup, the file size is 5109KB and then changed to a size of 1024KB - when the file size is 1024KB mcafee quarantines it.
I searched online and read other posts on this forum and believe the PE_Rom.dll file is related to my ASUS motherboard and the ASUS suite software i have installed.
If i run Asus ez update the file is changed back to a 5109KB size and the update appears to run ok (nothing requires updating)
I upload both files 1029KB and the 5109Kb to virus total - the 5109KB - 0/54 detection - the 1029Kb - 7/54 detection list of results where
- AVware - Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT
- Comodo - UnclassifiedMalware
- Mcafee - RDN/Generic.dx
- Mcafee-GW-Edition - RDN/Generix.dx
- Sophos - Mal/Generic-S
- Symantec - Trojan.Gen.SMH.2
- VIPRE - Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT
Does anyone know if this is a real infection or just a false positive? I searched a few of the register key locations where previous PE_rom.dll viruses created register keys and i see none of these.
Any help appreciated
