    Default Rootkit Results a Bit Overwhelming - Guidance Please

    Rootkit Results a Bit Overwhelming - Guidance Please

    I have a very long Rootkit Deepscan Result List that I don't know how to interpret...

    There was only one file that was singled out:

    Type: File
    Object: SafeOS.Mount:$WIMMOUNTDATA:$DATA
    Location: C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\SafeOS\
    Details: Unknown ADS

    But then I have nearly 500 (!) Registry Key entries like the one below, all with the notation under the "details" column: "No admin in ACL":

    Type: Key
    Object: {02DDA8BD-182F-4C35-A0F7-9CC378822AC3}
    Location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\Wow6432Node\CLSID\
    Details: No admin in ACL

    Any help I could get would be appreciated!

    Hello djlipsy,

    Those files appear to be normal. The RootAlyzer is an analyst tool, sometimes even legitimate software may use rootkit technologies.

    Do you suspect an infection, is that why you ran the scan?

    Best regards.
