win32.koobface !IK on A Squared scan

This one I am not sure about.
It looks like I should remove it but could it be one of those false positives that A squared is known for producing.

Win32.koobface !IK

Quarantine it or leave it to see what the next update comes up with.That is the Question.

Do you use Facebook?

I would quarantine it, and then when you next update A squared it will re-check it.

I have never used Facebook but maybe some of the grand kids have.
Just giving Malwarebytes a run just now and like you say Quarantine looks like the next step.

I was actually searching in Microsoft when i got the warning of a bad site from A Squared but I refused it so nothing should have downloaded but you never know.
Going to quarantine it.
Like Sea Urchin says if a false positive A Squared will reset it again.

Nothing found with Malwarebytes so I have Quarantined it.
Just a matter of waiting to see if A Squared resets it or not.
Thank you both for your help.
I will class as resolved but will let you know the outcome.

Looks like it was another False Positive as it is no longer in the Quarantine section.
