  1. Hey Everyone, I just created a detection for a very small sample set of Peel Remote that is displaying aggressive ads. The detection is Android/Adware.Peel. However, if it is preinstalled on your mobile device, you'll still need to use the process mentioned in my last post to uninstall for current user. Nathan
  2. Hey @Clang, Don't worry, we'll get there! Still in Beta now, but just from my own personal use, it's going to be awesome once finalized! Just keep on reporting those numbers so we can fill our database with bad numbers to block! Thanks for the support, Nathan
  3. Hi @Elwood, Sounds like you may gotten Adware. It could be that an app you already had installed on your phone was updated, or an ad SDK code within an app suddenly became more aggressive. If you send an Apps Report, I can look further into it. To send an Apps Report with Malwarebytes for Android use the following instructions. 1.Open the Malwarebytes for Android app. 2.Tap the Menu icon. 3. Tap Your apps. 4. Tap three lines icon in upper right corner. 5. Tap Send to support Choose an email app to send Apps Report. Your email app will open with the Apps Report included. At this point, it would be very helpful to mention you are submitting via recommendation from the Malwareybtes forum. This allows our support staff to know where to direct it. By sending the Apps Report, you will create a ticket in our support system. Private Message (PM) me the email used and/or the ticket number assigned. Nathan
  4. Hi @ntula, Maybe try the below, and see if it stops the ads. You can use this method to uninstall for current user (details in link below): https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/216616-removal-instructions-for-adups/ Warning: Make sure to read Restoring apps onto the device (without factory reset) in the rare case you need to revert/restore app. Use this/these command(s) during step 7 under Uninstalling Adups via ADB command line to remove: adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 tv.peel.app I'm not seeing anything that indicates it's straight Adware, but it could just be that I don't have the right version to research. If you like, you could send me an Apps Report and I can gather the exact hash of the one you think is causing ads. You'll need to do this before the uninstall steps noted above.

  5. Hi @ntula, You may be onto something. Although it isn't getting any hits by any anti-malware vendors as being adware, it's no longer available on Google PLAY. I'll look into tv.peel.app more and see what I can find. Nathan
  6. Hi @bob12a, Yes. If the Malwarebytes icon is on the phone, downloaded from Google PLAY, then it's downloaded and you're protected. Nathan
  7. Hi @bob12a, Okay, great! Since you purchased the licensed via Google PLAY (which is what our Android in-app purchasing does), you can use Malwarebytes for Android on any mobile device that uses the same Google PLAY account. Nathan
  8. Hi @bob12a, So within the Malwarebytes for Android app itself? Nathan
  9. Hi @Clang, So you already sent an Apps Report? If so, could you PM the ticket number assigned? If an Apps Report wasn't sent already, and you like to, instructions below.

  10. Hi @bob12a, So you bought a multiple device license to use with PC/Android/Mac? Or did you buy an Android license via Google PLAY? Nathan
  11. Hi @Ronan1, We are pretty sure it's browser related. This is caused by the way most browsers handle redirections executed by javascript code. Most browsers don't do a great job of preventing these redirects, which also cause ad pop-ups. Advertising affiliates are aware of this, and exploit this weakness. Even if an advertising affiliate is shut down for using this exploit, they just come back with a different affiliate id and are right back at it. The best way to block these pop-ups are to try a different browsers, disable javascript, install a browser with ad blocking (like Opera), and/or install Ad-block Plus. If you encounter these pop-ups again, back out of them using Android's back key. Also, clearing your history and cache will help stop the ads from reoccurring. However, if you like me to check for Adware on your mobile device regardless, I certainly can do that. You would need to send an Apps Report.

  12. Hi @Soniapuppet, I don't know of a limit, so I think you're good then. Nathan
  13. Hi @Soniapuppet, It depends. Are you planning to use on different OS's, or just Android? If just Android, are you using the same Google PLAY Account on all devices? If you use the same Google PLAY Account on all devices, you only need one subscription. Nathan
  14. Hi @DeathWitch, Sounds like you may have preinstalled. If that's the case, we may have a solution. If you don't mind sending, lets start with an Apps Report. To send an Apps Report with Malwarebytes for Android use the following instructions. 1.Open the Malwarebytes for Android app. 2.Tap the Menu icon. 3. Tap Your apps. 4.

From there, we can find out what app could be the issue, and move forward removing via this method: You can use this method to uninstall for current user (details in link below): https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/216616-removal-instructions-for-adups/ Warning: Make sure to read Restoring apps onto the device (without factory reset) in the rare case you need to revert/restore app. Use this/these command(s) during step 7 under Uninstalling Adups via ADB command line to remove: adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 <package name> Nathan
