False positive? - Trojan.Win32/Agent -hosts file

Recommended Posts

I have been receiving a false positive for Trojan.Win32/Agent in C:\Windows\hosts. I run Spybot, search and destroy and it regularly "innoculates" the host file to protect against malware sites

Hi PhilPoxon,


Welcome to the forum and thanks for your feedback :smile:


To check if it is false positive, please supply IObit the following information:


Upload the file that was reported as threat to VirusTotal and supply the report link in your next post.

• Also, ZIP the file that was reported as threat and upload it to Wikisend and supply the link in your next post for iObit to investigate further.


You can use THIS post as an example.


Thanks in advance.
