On May 3, 2017, at approximately 7:16 (GMT), Trend Micro received several customer reports of potential false detections of GoogleUpdateSetup.exe using Trend Micro products with Smart Scan Agent Pattern (13.377.00).
At approximately 12:46 (GMT), Smart Scan Agent Pattern (13.379.00) was released to resolve the issue and is now available in the Download Center and ActiveUpdate.
- Update to the Global Smart Scan Agent pattern 13.379.00 via ActiveUpdate. Refer to the following KB article for details on how to configure the update: OfficeScan client update configuration and process.
- If you are unable to update to the new 13.379.00 pattern, you can add the following directory(ies) and file(s) to the OfficeScan Real Time Scan exclusion list as a workaround.
To configure the scan exclusions list:
- For OSCE 10.6: Networked Computers > Client Management > Scan Settings > Real-time Scan Settings
- For OSCE 11.0/XG: Agents > Agent Management > Scan Settings > Real-time Scan Settings
Files to be excluded:
- <Installation directory>Program Files\Google\Update\188.8.131.52\GoogleUpdateSetup.exe
- After successfully updating to pattern 13.379.00, the directories should be removed from the exclusion list.
