Agent.exe from Battle Net Possible Exploit
« on: December 02, 2018, 09:49:20 am »
Hi,


Since a week or so, i have this message everytimes i'm running Battle Net Client to play Blizzard's games.
I'm on AUTOMODE but i can't figure out what's going on.
If i'm blocking as Voodooshield suggesting, then i can't play.
I have re-installed the Battle Net client, but it's still happening.

I had this with latest official 4.53, i've installed since a few days ago the 4.67 versions.


Thanks :)

I would try scanning the file and url at Virus Total.
https://www.virustotal.com/#/home/upload
 See what the scan comes up with. Sorry I’m not using Voodoo and you should be able to white list the file.

After scanning at Total Virus I would wait to see what Dan says about the file.
Sorry I cannot assist you anymore than what I have posted.
Oh one thing I forgot to mention is if you have Malwarebytes installed on your OS you could scan it to with Malwarebytes.

Regards,
Hardhead

Battle.net is using like at least 2+ agent.exe stored sometimes in different places to update the games.
I find it annoying but i think i can only blame blizzard for it.


I just allowed the warning since i trusted blizzard and the games legit from the homepage. (But thats my choice not suggestion :D )
HMP scan and EEK scan never flagged any agent.exe for me.

Total guess:
agent.exe needs admin rights for whatever task it does> flagged as exploit

@Dräffendrüks Maybe ask the question in the VoodooShield v4 STABLE Thread? More people read it and maybe more answers.
