  2. Did you enter your email address(es) in the following site https://haveibeenpwned.com/ ?
  3. This is purely a scam and they send those emails out en masse hoping one or two bite at the bait. Chances are that the password was bought from a hacker of a system breach. Just delete the email and then change your email password to a new Strong Password just to make sure. Do not use a password for more than one site. You can use a "base" of password for more than one site if that Base set of characters is appended, prepended or some how modified for other sites. Additionally, you can enter your email address(es) in the following site and it will check to see if that email address was part of a known breach. https://haveibeenpwned.com/ Please reference: ----------------- US FBI PSA - Extortionists Increasingly Using Recipients' Personal Information To Intimidate Victims US FTC Consumer Information - How to avoid a Bitcoin blackmail scam MyOnlinesecurity - attempted-blackmail-scam-watching-porn BleepingComputer - Beware of Extortion Scams Stating They Have Video of You on Adult Sites Malwarebytes' Blog - Sextortion emails: They’re probably not watching you Malwarebytes Forum sample thread - Got strange threating email.

  4. These FakeAlert web sites are created and destroyed so quickly its hard to keep up with them. However if you can get the URL to the FakeAlert it can be submitted in; Newest IP or URL Threats after reading; READ ME: Purpose of this forum This way Malwarebytes' products can block the site for others. FYI: I have created a PDF ScreenShow of a myriad of FakeAlert screens - FakeAlert-Screens.pdf / Flash Version for the purposes of recognition and education.
  5. Have you tried upgrading to v3.8.3 ? It fixes issues with Web Protection. RE: MB3.8 is here

  11. D-Link Agrees to Make Security Enhancements to Settle FTC Litigation
  12. Similar to these ? I have created a 1series of videos generated from these kinds of fraud sites for the purposes of recognition and education. They are all videos from real web sites. ALL are FRAUDS. While the majority of FakeAlerts are using the name Microsoft, many however use the name Apple and falsely indicate an Apple MAC or Apple iPhone is infected. All these have one thing in common and they have nothing to do with any software on your PC. They are all nefarious web sites meant to defraud you of money. The objective is to, falsely, goad you to make the phone call and pay for some service contract for an incident that never happened. From there they may continue to charge your Credit Card for other services, remote into your computer and do real damage and/or exfiltrate your personal data and they may use the information they obtain from you to commit additional frauds. Often in the case of Apple devices, the scam isn't to call a phone number for support but to download and install a rogue anti malware solution or VPN solution. I have also created a PDF ScreenShow of a myriad of FakeAlert screens and you will find numerous examples for Apple devices - FakeAlert-Screens.pdf / Flash Version MalwareScam.wmv MalwareScam-1.wmv MalwareScam-2.wmv MalwareScam-3.wmv MalwareScam-4.wmv MalwareScam-5.wmv MalwareScam-6.wmv They are all a kind of malicious advertisement ( aka; malvertisement ).

  13. Add to that the upcoming US Independence Day holiday which can be represented by a low number of responding personnel this week.
  14. Same here. I think it's because the Forum 'ware is trying to render a preview and fails thus the problem noted.
