  1. Thanks Chris, it's no longer being detected. :) Appreciate the prompt response and fix.
  2. This is being detected on my machines with Google Drive installed this afternoon. I'd say it relates to an update that occurred sometime between 5.5hrs ago and 30mins ago, as it was not picked up on a machine that has a scheduled scan at 1100hrs NZ time, but was picked up on a machine that is scheduled for a 1600hrs NZ time scan. A repeat scan on the 1100hrs machine now detects it too. Virustotal had a 0/67 detection report. Google Drive File FP.txt
  3. Ok thanks @exile360 Just one final question remaining - am I best to do the Intel MEI Driver or the Intel ME firmware first? And definitely doesn't matter which order the BIOS is done in relation to MEI stuff? (OK that was two. :P) Really appreciate your input. I'm setting this one up for someone else, so I want to be extra careful I avoid borkage.
  4. Thanks so much @exile360 That's a really comprehensive reply! I appreciate the effort and time that must have taken to post. :) That's interesting about the order of audio and graphics drivers. I didn't know that. This one has both integrated Intel UHD graphics and discreet Nvidea Quadro graphics (it's basically a workstation). There's updates for both, from memory. So if I understand you correctly I need to do anything related to the chipset first. There are actually a few in my list that relate to the chipsets I think - definitely the Intel Chipset Installation and Utility Driver, Intel Serial I0 Driver. Will I do those tow first (in the order typed) and then the MEI stuff? Would you recommend I do the Intel MEI Driver or the Intel ME firmware first? Good to know I can do the BIOS at any stage, and yup! I'm very aware of the risk with BIOS updates- thankfully I've never been bitten yet with any BIOS updates going bad (at least not HP ones). Before doing so I unplug all peripherals and switch off all security software, and also run a SFC and DISM RestoreHealth first. My whole reason for posting this was because I'm sure I read somewhere that it's vital to get the MEI firmware and BIOS updates in the right order (this was back in 2017 when the first spectre/meltdown vulnerabilities came to light), as one might undo the changes of the other if done in the wrong order (from a spectre/meltdown point of view - not the other BIOS fixes). Of course I can't find that post or article for looking now! It's an 8th gen Intel chip, so will definitely need security updates. I'm not sure what brand the SSD is. I've a sneaky feeling it's a Toshiba, or maybe a Seagate... I haven't got my hands on the machine yet. The product datasheet simply says: 1TB M.2 PCIe® NVMe™ TLC Solid State Drive. I also forgot to ask, would I be best to do any Windows Updates before anything else? Thanks again exile. :)
  5. Hey forum. Wondering which is the best order to install drivers from the device manufacturer for a PC I'll be setting up. It's a 2018 HP Zbook 15v. The five I'm concerned about doing in the correct order are: a BIOS update (which has a microcode and security components as well as general fixes, so definitely wants doing), Intel MEI Driver, Intel ME firmware, Intel Chipset Installation and Utility Driver, Intel Serial I0 Driver. The rest is run of the mill stuff: audio driver, graphics driver, thunderbolt controller driver, synaptics fingerprint driver, IR camera update, WLAN and gigabit ethernet drivers, bluetooth, HP wireless button driver, card reader driver, and Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. Been a while since I set one up, esp one already 2yrs old! Thanks.
  6. Hi. Could someone from Malwarebytes staff please tell me if I purchase the Premium + Privacy for 5 devices, if I will be able to use the license key for this product on my Android phone to activate Malwarebytes Antimalware for Android? I realise the privacy component is not yet available for Android, which is fine, but my question is if I will be able to use the activation key for this option to activate the normal Malwarebytes Android app. I have a two device Premium license which is about to expire, which I'm using on my Android phone and one of my computers. I'm trialling the Malwarebytes VPN on the computer which has the about-to-expire license and think I'd like to keep it. What I don't want though is to purchase the Premium and Privacy license and find out I can't activate my Android phone with it, as it's essential I have real-time protection on my phone too. (I'd be better going for the 5 license of just antimalware and forgoing privacy in that case). Thanks in advance!
  7. I came on here to see if others were reporting this issue. I manually checked for updates on one of my four machines today and got the update to 4.2. After the programme restarted it had reverted my premium product to a free version on a 14 day trial. I tried restarting the machine to see if it would right itself but it didn't. Fortunately I was able to simply reactivate it with the same licence. I've deliberately not checked for for updates on my other three machines yet, which are also all running premium versions. Since you asked the OP @exile360 the machine in question is the only one I have running a non-lifetime license. It's a license that is shared with my android phone (which appears to still be activated) and has 67 days remaining. It is a two year/two device license. I have no idea what email was used for some of my older lifetime licenses, which might make reactivating difficult if it they get rejected when I try an activate.
  8. That's so bizarre! There must be something else that loads intermittently on that login page that MB browser guard doesn't like... I can't think of another reason, can you? I load the page via a bookmark, so it's not like I'm mistyping anything and visiting a counterfeit site in error. If it happens again I'll just keep trying and come back if it doesn't seem to resolve itself with repeated efforts (with clearing browser history between tries of course).
  9. I tried again this morning with FF and got the same result as I posted - blocked. Broswer guard version was 2.2.5. I then checked for add-on updates in FF and this extension received an update to 2.2.6 (which was not available yesterday AM when I checked then). I can now navigate to the site with no problems on FF with version 2.2.6. I then tried on Chrome and that works fine also (I didn't check that yesterday as I assumed the extensions would block the same sites on both browsers). Interestingly Chrome is still on 2.2.5. It seems something has changed in version 2.2.6 for FF to allow this site (at least on my end...)
  10. Hi. Just tried to visit the payroll site my work uses to download my latest payslip but Malwarebytes browser guard blocks it because the site may contain malware. This is the first time it has done this, as I have visted this site every fortnight either via FF or Chrome, today happened to be with FF. The page I was trying to visit is this: https://secure2.ipayroll.co.nz/login Could someone take a look at this? Thanks. I chose not to proceed just incase ipayroll has been compromised.
  11. Hi @gonzo Yes I did wonder about that embedded .exe myself, and suspected that was the reason. Your Fix has worked beautifully. :) Thanks so much. Just tested in FF also and behaving there too. Thanks for looking into that so speedily!
  12. Hi. I recently installed MB browser extension and it's flagging some sites I have used on a regular basis for years, and have never had any problems with. It's the smart catalogue search for a group of public libraries in the greater Wellington region (NZ). Thanks. https://porirua.spydus.co.nz/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/MSGTRN/WPAC/HOME https://library.huttcity.govt.nz/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/MSGTRN/OPAC/HOME https://kapiti.spydus.co.nz/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/MSGTRN/WPAC/HOME https://masterton.spydus.co.nz/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/WPAC/BIBENQ I haven't tested them in FF with the FF MB browser extension enabled but I imagine the result would be the same.
  13. Ahh so that is why I couldn't see it in the control panel to uninstall it that way. Silly me I should have realised. Thanks for the reply. :)
