Title: Continued False Positive
Post by: Pkshadow on August 03, 2018, 05:05:23 am
Continued False Positive of Firefox.  Submitted last time and was told prob went to a site that had EICAR on it.

Unfortunately I do not think that is the case.  I may do Support for Firefox but not been to many sites today
That could possibly have done that to Firefox.exe and it is marking all Processes 7 as Eicar.
Norton Internet Security full system scan today, Malwarebytes early eve daily and uploaded to Virus Total.
Nothing found.

Hi Pkshadow,

Welcome to Adlice.com Forum.
Could you please clear Firefox Cache, then redo a scan and check if the detection is still present ?

Regards.

Hi, you can close this. It is memory resident, same as last time.  Gone after reboot, open Firefox then close, and then scan and is clear.

Has to be some site am not suspecting as did not travel far.  Thanks
