Thread blocked: Knime associated bin presumably contains Malware Trojan:Win32/Qakbot!ml


Knime was running in the background and scanning client websites. There was no thread detected during previous scans but it doesn’t mean the presumable intrusion necessarily came from the scan.


I did three scans and, surprisingly, when Parallel Chunks were disable to narrow down on the potential impacted domain, nothing was found.

May question would be:

  1. When a temp file from Knime get deleted by the “Windows Defender Overlord”, how is Knime supposed to handle that?
  2. Is there any option to increase interoperability with security mechanisms like Firewalls, VPNs, both blocking requests (Note: I encountered that with NordVPN before), or plain old Anti Virus tools? Maybe some sort of log message if a request from Knime was not satisfied eventually including response codes?
