Trojan Malware Detected in Solidigm Storage Tool (Intel® branded NAND SSDs) Driver Update

New Contributor II

The Intel Driver & Support Assistant to keep a NUC 8i7BEH/NUC8BEB updated is showing that the Solidigm Storage Tool has an available update (Version 1). When downloading and installing the SST update the system security app Malwarebytes detected that it contained PDM:Trojan.Win32.Bozan.a malware flagged with a high risk status.

Are other NUC owners experiencing this as well?

Is this a false positive, an actual corruption, or an in-built function with a questionable process?

Hello, jCav, Superusers, and community members.

We appreciate your patience.

We have been working on reproducing the issue you are reporting on this thread and other threads on the community like, and we have great news:

We had reproduced a similar issue with Kaspersky* Solidigm Storage Tool (Intel® branded NAND SSDs) viruses which is a false positive. 

Not only this thread on the Kaspersky* community confirms our suspicion that this was a false positive, but Solidigm® submitted a 'false positive report' for the Solidigm® Storage Tool with Kaspersky*, to which Kaspersky* confirmed that it is a false positive and they are working on the fix. For more information about this issue, visit the Solidigm Storage Tool (Intel® branded NAND SSDs) viruses thread on the Kaspersky* forums.

Based on this information, if you have any other questions related to Kaspersky*, we advise you to contact them directly.

We appreciate the time and effort you all took to bring this issue to our attention.

We will close this thread since the issue is related to a third-party tool and the solution is available on the link to the Kaspersky* forums previously provided.

Best regards.

Jos B.

Apologies for such a delayed reply.

True the concern of viruses and invasions is very worrying for the whole world in a unique way for the manufacturers of the processors
