This only started happening today. The software in question is an EPUB reader called Neat Reader. I’m running Windows 10 and have Malwarebytes Pro browser guard.

Every time I launch the app, I get a popup saying there’s been an RTP/Trojan detection. The details for each of these detections are as follows:

– Domain: avosapps.us
– File: C:Program Files (x86)NeatReaderNeatReader.exe
– Category: Trojan
– Port: 443
– Type: outbound connection

I can’t upload any ebooks because Malwarebytes is blocking the apps connection to the internet, and I’m not sure if I should just create an exclusion. Weirdly, Malwarebytes also blocks the homepage for the software as malware.

Should I assume this is a false positive? I ran full scans with Malwarebyes and Windows Defender as well as scans with adwcleaner and HitmanPro and everything came back clean.

    Port 443 is https (like the same protocol used by modern websites and browsers). “avosapps.us” is a hosting service that people can develop a web application. Seems like a false positive.

    Why did Malwarebytes detect it? Since the site hosts user-generated content, possibly someone used to to host malware at some point.
