    All of a sudden, after an MAM update, it says I am infected with:

    Backdoor.Celofot in:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\protect_ie (Backdoor.Celofot)

    But even after removing it in MAM, it returns.

    Does MAM report this for anyone else?

    HELP please? How I remove it?

    Yes MBAM. So Backdoor.Celofot keeps showing up for you too?

    It don't say it IS a FP. It says "possible". That's what concerns me.

    I cannot find any official comments by BMAM that confirms it's a FP, so unless they do, I have to treat it as a threat!

    Unless it is a big coincidence, chances are it is a FP, since two different people on two other sites have had the same problem today.

    Scan with HMP, see if anything comes up there.

    Per the updated thread at MB's forum, try updating and rescanning and the "bug"/"FP" should now be clear.

    Cheers. I just did an malwarebytes update and now it reports no backdoor infection.

    In the link I provided I see that nosirrah, Malwarebytes VP of Research, confirmed that it is a bug/FP on more than one occasion.
