  1. Amaroq_Starwind: It is a not Phishing nor a data harvesting venture. Its a multi-point generated, mass email broadcast venture exploiting people's worries, fears and anxieties about their Internet activity. Hoping that a few scant recipients who are not well informed and don't follow current events will take the bait and pay the suggested price using crypto currencies. Its nothing more that a cheap man's get rich scheme.
  2. A few simple steps... Disable acceptance of ICMP Pings Change the Default Router password using a Strong Password Use a Strong WiFi password on WPA2 using AES encryption Disable Remote Management Is the Router Firmware up-to-date ? Specifically set Firewall rules to BLOCK; TCP and UDP ports 135 ~ 139 and 445
  3. I have noted the continuance of the bug as well and I will see if things have been fixed. Thank you Ron.
  4. I doubt that Malwarebytes supports the Tor network.
  5. NOTE: DNS does not slow down Internet. A slower DNS server may introduce latency in the resolution of a Domain name to an IP address but that only occurs once per Domain name to IP address occurrence. Its like a 5mph ramp to a 65mph highway where you travel 200 miles on that highway and the ramp is only 200 feet long. That 5mph for 200 feet has little overall effect on the travel time. Even if on that 200 foot ramp you did 10mph instead of 5mph the time difference would be inconsequential.
  6. Do you have so many hard disks that one is "G:" ? This is probably a Removable Drive that is not connected and while it is not connected it is "not accessible."
  7. Because 3rd Party Firewall applications are not intrinsic to the OS they have greater functionality, reporting, granularity and capability.
  8. Here's another variant with a new twist. Instead of the text of the email being in the body of the email, it is it a JPEG and embedded within the email body. This is done to thwart Bayesian and other forms of email filters which block based upon content.
  9. On a desktop behind a NAT Router with simplistic firewall capabilities or a NAT Router with a full Firewall implementation, I agree. The Windows Firewall is just fine. However... On a portable system where you jump onto other people's networks, especially public ones, then I can see replacing the built-in Windows Firewall with a 3rd Party Firewall application.
  10. I think perspective is needed on Binisoft's Windows Firewall Control now a Mawarebytes' product. " Windows Firewall Control is a powerful tool which extends the functionality of Windows Firewall and provides new extra features which makes Windows Firewall better. " It isn't a Firewall. It is a front-end to the Native OS' Firewall and adds additional constructs and adds extended functionality to what is already built-into the Windows OS.
  11. That is NOT what it says. You are inferring 25% off the Full Price. It does not state those words. Continue to the next page and it clearly states 25% off the second year.
  12. @Hyperwolf122 Are you mobile or is this a fixed location desktop ?
  13. No. In IE and Firefox it still tries to render the content with a viewer in the editor and shows an error as unsupported or as unsupported MIME while in the Editor. However the Forum does show the content as an attachment after the post is made or has been updated. EDIT: It is good to have the number of downloads for a given attachment shown again. It has been missed.
  14. Yes, please. Extract the RAW full Header and Body email and post in Newest Malware Threats Some Web mail sites will call it something like; "view message source".
  15. Yes. MBAM specifically will deal with; ZIP, RAR, 7z, CAB and MSI for archives. And self-Extracting; ZIP, 7z, RAR and NSIS executables (aka; SFX files).
  16. This post is meant to be a FYI on an email scam that can have text similar to that referenced below. If you receive email similar to the following then please, just delete it. It's a scam. If a password that you have used is included in the email it does not mean your PC or email has become compromised. It was most likely to have been found in a database whose contents were harvested from a Data Breach that was then sold and subsequently used in this scam. They include the password to bolster that scam and make it more "credible". If that is the situation, it is suggested that you change your email password to a new Strong Password just to make sure. Additionally, you can enter your email address(es) in the following site and it will check to see if that email address is associated with a known breach. https://haveibeenpwned.com/ Hi! As you may have noticed, I sent you an email from your account. This means that I have full access to your account. I've been watching you for a few months now. The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited. If you are not familiar with this, I will explain. Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other device. This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it. I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence. Why your antivirus did not detect malware? Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours so that your antivirus is silent. I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the screen, and in the right half you see the video that you watched. With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts on social networks. I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers that you use. If you want to prevent this, transfer the amount of $780 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: "Buy Bitcoin"). My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: ########################################### After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again. I give you 48 hours to pay. I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter. Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my bitcoin address. I do not make any mistakes. If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video will be immediately distributed. Best regards!

  17. I want to state that I reported the context menu anomaly back in v3.61. I just tested what LiquidTension purported. I did an in situ upgrade and I lost the Context Menu Scan with Malwarebytes. I rebooted the PC and the Context Menu Scan with Malwarebytes was now present.
  18. LOL - You mean sUBs the author of ComboFix ? He's been a Malwarebytes' employee for a quite a number of years now.
  19. MS Windows based file submissions are performed in; Newest Malware Threats However I can state right now it not malicious. It has no detections on Virus Total and it is Digitally Signed by Safer Networks and it is their, trusted, software . https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/a38d4ec3f9884851981f07afd615d95e026746e28464396ba33f4d5be24a9b8d/analysis/
  20. If there is nothing new to report, can this thread be closed ? { NOTE You can always have an Administrator or a Moderator re-open this thread if needed. }
