Microsoft Defender Falsely Detects Win32/Hive.ZY In Google Chrome Electron Apps

Behavior:Win32/Hive.ZY – Issue look through !

What Is It?

Here is a BleepingComputer news article written by Lawrence Abrams about a current false positive / malware database (signature update) issue with Microsoft’s Windows Security / Microsoft Defender called: Microsoft Defender Falsely Detects Win32/Hive.ZY In Google Chrome, Electron Apps.

Here is a brief description of this news article:

A bad Microsoft Defender signature update mistakenly detects Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Discord, and other Electron apps as ‘Win32/Hive.ZY’ each time the apps are opened in Windows.

The issue started Sunday morning when Microsoft pushed out Defender signature update 1.373.1508.0 to include two new threat detections, including Behavior:Win32/Hive.ZY.

“This generic detection for suspicious behaviors is designed to catch potentially malicious files. If you downloaded a file or received it through email, ensure that it is from a reliable source before opening it,” reads the Microsoft detection page for Win32/Hive.ZY.

According to BornCity, the false positive is widespread, with users reporting on BleepingComputerTwitter, and Reddit that the detections appear each time they open their browser or an Electron app.

Traveling | Antivirus Programs

I had several dreams that I woke up remembering, I did not bother to record them or try to remember them, and so now I barely remember part of two dreams.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it probably involved me traveling around one or more cities, I probably stayed at one or more locations, and I probably went shopping; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Old Floppy Disks | An Alice Morgan-Like Woman

Dream 1

This dream took place inside a fictional multi-purpose building that had an apartment, I assume The BP Library, an office, and I am not sure what else.

I possibly had an apartment room in this building, if so, at some point I left my apartment room to probably work in the library part of the building.

Helping A Coworker With Android Apps & App Stores

I had at least three sets of remembered dreams but I did not record them, and so now I can only barely remember part of two dreams which is very unfortunate because not long after waking up I kept thinking about someone/something involving work that impacted my mood for most of the day.

Maybe one of my forgotten dreams led to this being on my mind and impacting my feelings/mood, I am not sure, I just know that I struggled for most of the day trying to deal with the thoughts/feelings.
