Windows Defender False Positives of Immunet Temp Files

Recommended Posts

You may be interested to know that Windows Defender is detecting some immunet temp files as Trojan: JS/Foretype.A!ml

This started happening 2 days ago, and has happened daily to me since.

Their "more info" link, if useful: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/threats/malware-encyclopedia-description?name=Trojan%3aJS%2fForetype.A!ml&threatid=2147724342&enterprise=0

Edit: Uh, pasting images to your forum is terrible, they lose a ton of quality in the process, practically unreadable. Here: https://imgur.com/15VhZ3Y

Great idea to include some screenshots qwerty123, much appreciated!

Those are defiantly ClamAV update files being quarantined.

Have you created an exclusion rule for Immunet's "entire Program Files folder" with Windows Defender yet? If not, give that a try.

If you're using Win 10 & you're not sure how to create custom exclusion rules with WD here's a URL that may be helpful. https://www.windowscentral.com/how-exclude-files-and-folders-windows-defender-antivirus-scans
