[SOLVED] Is this a legitimate Panda file

Post by exraiderfan » Sat, 20 Dec 2014, 00:35

Hello everyone,

I scanned my computer with a product called herdprotect. The scan detected this file as potential malware: C:\ Program Files (x86)\Panda Security\Panda Security Protection\tools\pandasecurity\ytb.exe

I'm not sure why, perhaps its the ytb portion of the file which I believe stands for yahoo tool bar.

Any clarification would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

This file call "Panda Security Toolbar" and unfortunately some Antivirus company detect it as a malware.

But for sure you can resubmit this file on Virustotal ;)

myazdi,

Hello.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I'm happy that entry is not a problem.

As you pointed out sometimes scanners detect each other. I'd read that somewhere but had forgotten.
