Is this process ancestry legitimate for TeamViewer?Process Ancestry: wininit.exe -> services.exe -> TeamViewer_Service.exe -> TeamViewer.exe-> mshta.exe
Thank you for your message. ?
Yes, this is a false positive and a safe file. ?
HTA is an (old) HTML-based application technology supported only by Internet Explorer– https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML_Application
The behaviour might seem suspicious to the antivirus because the TeamViewer executable generates a temporary .hta file and launches it with the Windows built-in mshta.exe runner, which runs it as a trusted application.
I hope this could help. ?
