Malwarebyte installer is trojan ?

Perhaps you guys think I'm lying about this,but I downloaded the installer of malwarebyte today on Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - CNET Download.com

The link I got from its official website,there is no doubt it's either phishing or slander.

After downloaded,kaspersky's real time protection doesn't detect it as virus yet.Later on,I found my yahoo mail and hotmail accessed from other region and my MMOG account been stolen then I scanning entire PC then found it..

I do not know whether it's false positive.Those advanced users or who have experience against trojan please make a test about it.

Here is the proof of my kaspersky pure 2 detection

I'm sure of it because my information and data exposed (Checked via yahoo notice) after I downloaded malwarebyte installer.

Good lesson here, always go to the manufacturers site and get your downloads and drivers from them.

You can upload it here:

https://www.virustotal.com/

where it will be scanned by many different tools.

I can't say I'm completely surprised. I have heard that recently CNET is deliberately letting certain add-ons be included with their downloads.

I'd get Malwarebytes from Malwarebytes.org; nowhere else.

You may have been taken to a page that looked similar, but I can assure you that the genuine Malwarebytes site would not have infected your computer.

I agree with Andy, but I've also asked Siri at the Malwarebytes site to comment on this. So far, I haven't yet found this reported there.

I'm sure it's official website base on its domain Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download .In any case I must admitted that before I format my pc,I trusted the malwarebyte very well.However I do not fully trust cnet

The hyperlink from Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download 'Download' taken user to cnet for download.

P/S : I can't upload it on virus total because I have quarantined it to prevent HIM access to my information.Plus starter version doesn't include the sandbox software.

That's strange.

That link takes me to Malwarebytes.org. The link there takes me here, at bleepingcomputer.com.

Following the download link from Malwarebytes takes me to MajorGeeks. I have scanned this exe using VirusTotal, and there is one hit......but I'd be 99% sure this is a FP.
