As of yesterday 1-29-21, WRURL.DLL being flagged by Malwarebytes as malware.

Hello @jackwebb 

 

If it’s located here then it’s a False Positive and let MBAM support know please! It’s part of Webroot’s Web Filtering module!

 

See here from VirusTotal: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/930f97accadc4c43c8ec971743e940ed37aa2b8c2bef143956d127862fad43aa/detection

 

Also I have MBAM and it’s not detected by them on my system and I updated to the latest database update before scanning that file.

HTH,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, your suggested location [C:\ProgramData\WRData\PKG] is where it was flagged at.

However...This afternoon after another scan by MBAM,  it was not flagged and had not been quarantined. MBAM is now clear. Looks like as you suggested a false positive.

 

thanks a lot for the help here...jack
