NS scan finds malware in a Malwarebytes/temp file
This started yesterday with a reboot request after Norton Security 22.214.171.124 performed a scan it informed me that backdoor.regin was located in a Malwarebytes temp file. It was located in the root of Malwarebytes/00001263.temp. Rebooted
After posting in MBAM forum I was told as per below this is a Norton issue of false positives and Norton creating the temp file again.. "The issue you report has been a longstanding problem with Norton.
There are many threads about it, such as HERE and HERE
It has been discussed at the Norton forums, as well, HERE and HERE
The problem is with Norton, not with Malwarebytes...."
Today after a update and a quick scan malware was again found in the root of Malwarebytes in a temp file. Details below:

SO why is NS creating a temp file in the root of Malwarebytes and as per MBAM forum, is it a NS issue/problem and what is the cure for this or is it a issue of needing a new patch to correct this issue/problem ??? Should I configure Norton not to scan MBAM DIR ?
Tons of fun.............
