    Exclamation MBAM.EXE 1.70 found MSQT.DLL Virus in Win 8.

    I don't normally post in this Forum so please excuse me if this is the wrong Sub-Forum to post the following, I am currently Dual-Booting between X86 Windows 8 Pro Edition with Media Center Add-On, and X64 Ubuntu 13.04 Nightly Edition using WUBI.EXE, last night Malware Bytes Anti-Malware 1.70 Pro-Edition (otherwise known as MBAM.EXE) found a Trojen-Horse called MSQT.DLL in my Windows 8 Installation. What was particularly interesting was the fact that it NOT ONLY slipped by Avast 8.0 Beta 3 Public Beta for Windows, but it slipped by Malware Bytes Anti-Malware 1.7.0 Pro Edition as well! So my question is the following, is MSQT.DLL any way related to Ubuntu 13.04 Nightly, and/or could it have gotten on my Windows Partition while running Ubuntu 13.04 Nightly?

    Forgot to mention that http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/ is where I got the AMD64 Ubuntu 13.04 WUBI.EXE from.
