  1. 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 Op
  2. Hi @Soniapuppet, I don't know of a limit, so I think you're good then. Nathan
  3. 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

  5. Hi @annmariaa, If it's a specific site causing the redirects, it's either a malicious site, or a site that has been compromised. If it's a site that has been compromised, it's up the that site's admin to fix the issue. Nathan
  6. Hi @Phuc, Yes, it's different. Also, VirusTotal only represent our Windows scanner as well. You can PM me the MD5, and I can check for you if you like. Nathan
  7. Hi @Phuc, Well then, glad we were aware of it WAY back in August, and have been detecting since last May -> https://blog.malwarebytes.com/android/2019/08/mobile-menace-monday-android-trojan-raises-xhelper/ I guess new to The Hacker News though. But yes, very nasty piece of malware. Nathan
  8. Hi @misgnomer, Well, that is quite a predicament. Since you have a device that could potentially be infected, you can send us an Apps Report from that device. Since you suspect that it may be spreading through WiFi, I would suggest disconnecting any other devices on the network before powering up and sending the Apps Report.

Tap three lines icon in upper right corner. 5. Tap Send to support
  9. Hi @Phuc, Thanks for bringing this to our attention! This will be detected as Android/Adware.Ashas as you suggested in future database versions. Thanks again! Nathan
  10. HI @RayRay26, I did some testing on the site, and I couldn't get it to drop any malicious apps. Looks like it just serves up a bunch of ads. Since you closed it out before it even got to the site, you're 100% safe. Honestly, even if you had browsed around on the site, you would have been fine. It's just grabbing revenue from ads one annoying ad at a time. Nathan
  11. Hi @Jonny6980, Just responded here: Sorry, didn't see this thread until afterwards. Nathan

  13. Hi @RayRay26, I think you're probably okay. Most likely it would have redirected you to a site to attempt to get personal information. Like filling out a survey for "free" prize. Nathan
  14. Hi @wys52613, Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This issue has been resolved and will no longer be detected in future database versions. Thanks again, Nathan
  15. Hi @yeahnot9000, Most of these scam sites are tying to trick the user into giving up personal information by entering the "survey". Rarely do they drop malicious apps. Therefore, as long as you didn't enter any personal info, you are safe. Nathan
  16. Hi @Jimmi, These types of ads are browser related. This is caused by the way most browsers handle redirections executed by javascript code.

  17. Hi @yeahnot9000, You should be clear of any malware, so no need to worry about that. It sounds like the redirect is aimed at Chrome, and only mobile. Not unusual for ad redirects to focus on one area. In this case Chrome and Mobile. Nathan
  18. Hi @Slobodan, Although I don't believe we can stop the use of other apps from using camera/microphone, we absolutely do detect spyware. Nathan
  19. Hi @Smackus, Malwarebytes for Android is taking a more aggressive stance against stalkerware. Therefore, apps that used to be clean may now be detected as Monitor. Monitor is a subset of Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), thus it’s NOT considered malware. The main purpose of detecting these Monitor apps is to make unsuspecting users aware of their presence. Especially in cases of domestic abuse where abusers have physical access to victims mobile devices. If you are aware of the presence of these apps, you can simply ignore them using this method: Run a scan.
  20. Hi @CWWorld, 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> If you need help with which apps to remove, you can send an Apps Report.

  21. Hi @Mazi I'm guessing it might be a system app, or have admin permissions. If it has admin permission, you can deactivate it through settings>security>Device admin apps, or some variation of that depending on the Android OS. Then uninstall. If it's a system app, it's more work to remove, but doable.

  22. Hi @ridgerunner777, You can disable via Settings > Notifications > Malwarebytes > Disable. However, be aware that you will have no way of knowing if Real Time Protection gets disabled if you turn off notifications. Nathan
