  1. Hello, so I had a weird error message popping up in my Windows 7 x64 so I ran all the available security tools, and I unfortunately found a couple of infections. The strangest thing was that there was a Mozilla.zip (with the content of the Firefox /AppData files) in my Roaming folder created last night, so I was wondering if my passwords have been stolen, as I save a lot of them in Firefox and I had no Master Password? I would be also grateful if anyone could check my log files, but I guess my system is clean now, only the Mozilla.zip bugs me.....

  2. This brand new Lava x50 4G marshmallow 6.0 phone India. Just installed AVG antivirus and few small apps only from play store. While installing few ad blocker add-ons in Firefox 5.6 0 browser to stop ad flows, had a popup that start installing a quick patch named RozBuzz in a separate download window and could not stop or pause it. Now prob start here as everytime open ffox, opens a additional junk tab. Added, occupied around 1 GB space in internal memory. There is only 2gb files but show 3.15gb occupied memory. Tried clearing ffox cache and fresh ffox install, not solved. No malicious app in app list. Some bloatware malware got installed. Have to remove and fix.
  3. I'm also getting the notification. Is there anything I could do? FRST.txt Addition.txt Scan Log.txt
  4. I've also been getting messages about coin-hive being blocked. It's said to be originating from firefox.exe. I will try unloading all the Firefox extensions. It may be relevant that it seems to be connected with updates on KUSC's website kusc.org (public radio station in Los Angeles). Slightly later: I've tried disabling all my Firefox add-ons without effect, but I closed the tab in which kusc.org was running and the messages no longer occur. Is it possible that something on kusc.org has been infected with it?
  5. Firefox Ver54 getting MS Pop-up Application Error (Memory Issue) when closing FF from the X or through the Menu. After multiple day's and try's/solutions/install/uninstall in the Mozilla Forum https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1164618 Have now found that the issue is resolved when I turn Mbam 3.1.2.1733 , CP ver 1.0.141 , UP ver 1.021.90 and previous version that I was running till I updated 3.1.2 to a higher build. By turning off/shutting Mbam down.resolves the issue but now this is a MBAM issue.
  6. This is a general question. I just finished getting rid of shrt123cln by running JRT, ADW Cleaner, Sophos and Farbar. Are these firefox profiles actual problems? When I was running the above programs many of these profiles were removed. Now I have *never* created a profile manually in Firefox. If there are profiles there they are created automatically. The latest is roaming/mozilla/random #s RWDFD (or something like that)/default\prefs.js IS THIS A PROBLEM?
  7. Does anyone know of a possible conflict with the exploit protection modules of MB v3.1.2 and Norton v22.x on 32-bit operating systems? I recently upgraded from MBAM Premium v2.2.1 to MB Premium v3.1.2 on a 32-bit Vista SP2 laptop. Since the upgrade my Firefox ESR browser has been very slow and occasionally crashes on exit due to shutdown hangs. The Modules tab of the Mozilla crash reports always flag Malwarebytes' mbae.dll, Norton's IPSEng32.dll (Intrusion Prevention System script engine, which includes exploit protection) and NVIDIA's nvwgf2um.dll (D3D10 driver). Here are few recent crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/432f89de-df42-457b-bd23-10eed0170610#tab-modules https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/0614fcd3-9b76-4847-87f5-44f4e0170610#tab-modules I'm aware that Vista SP2 reached it's end of extended support on 11-Apr-2017 but MB v3.1.2's real-time protection seems much more problematic than MBAM v2.2.1. Here's a few changes I've tested since upgrading that seem to improve system performance: Add mutual scan exclusions in both MB v3 and Norton v22 Disable Web Protection in MB v3. This solves intermittent Automatic LiveUpdate failures in Norton (I had this problem with MBAM v2.2.1 as well). Disable Exploit Prevention in Norton v22 (Settings | Firewall | Intrusion and Browser Protection | Exploit Prevention). This solves Firefox browser slow response times and crashes. Note that my Vista SP2, Norton v22, MB v3 and Firefox ESR v52 are all fully patched and I have the latest available drivers for my NVIDIA GeForce graphics card. I also did a complete wipe of MBAM v2.2.1 off my system before installing MB v3.1.2 (deactivate and uninstall MBAM v 2.2.1 from Control Panel, re-boot and run new MB-Clean v3.1.0.1004 tool, manually delete remnants in C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes). mb-check-results.zip FRST.txt Addition.txt ----------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.1.2 * NS Premium v22.9.4.8 * MB Premium v3.1.2.1733-1.0.141 HP Pavilion dv6835ca, Intel Core2Duo T5550 @ 1.83 GHz, 3 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
  8. I have adware in my browsers that adwcleaner, malwarebytes and hitman pro are unable to clean. I have deleted cookies. I did not find any extensions or new program files. Malwarebytes is able to block popus from opening though. Please help. I cannot format my PC at this time as too time sensitive work. I have attached the files. Thanks so much. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  9. The only way of getting Chrome Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit), Firefox 53.0.3 (64-bit) and VLC 64 bits is to shut Malwarebytes 3.1. This happens on both a desktop and a laptop. Once the programs have opened properly, they keep functionning for some time, but revert to malfunctionning eventually. It seems another way to get Chrome to work is to append "no-sandboxing" to the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.ex" line in the shortcut properties. So far Malwarebytes support has not answered the ticket I opened 2 days ago. I hate having to disable a security app to get a browser to access the Internet for obvious reasons. Can anyone help ? Thanks in advance Fredric mb-check-results.zip
  10. Ok, so I woke up yesterday and found in my laptop's desktop that Firefox was installed and two suspicious shortcuts named BigFarm and BigBangEmpire where added. Checked files, went to reddit and followed /r/techsupport malware removal guide, asked on /r/techsupport live chat about it and users responded to being a standard trojan virus. Finished removal guide, threats removed/quarantined, etc. All good. Deleted all fishy files installed that day, etc. Opened chrome and noticed some extensions missing as well my log on info not being there. Checked chrome files noticed they where changed to another file named : C:\Program Files (x86)\Footjane\Application\chrome.exe (Google Inc.) Uninstalled chrome using RevoUninstaller, deleted all remaining footjane files. Tried reinstalling chrome but I can't. Tried everything, tried every solution on the internet I could find, alternate installer, offline installer, safe mode, Ninite, etc. Nothing works Laptop runs Windows 7 Professional (X64)
  11. For the past few weeks I've noticed that Firefox.exe does not terminate upon closing the browser and I've now connected the behavior to Malwarebytes. A bump on effect is that Firefox will not start a new instance until that old instance is killed via task manager. Malwarebytes Running Open Firefox Close Firefox Task manager shows Firefox.exe processor utilization drop to zero, but process is still running New instance of Firefox will start, but will not load UI Malwarebytes Not Running Open Firefox Close Firefox Task manager shows Firefox.exe terminating immediately New instances of Firefox start with no issues Quitting Malwarebytes during the Firefox session will correct the problem as well... bottom line, no Malwarebytes, Firefox terminates correctly. This happens each and every time I close Firefox with Malwarebytes running. Starting Firefox in safe mode does not correct the issue. Uninstall and reinstall of Firefox does not correct the issue. MB logs and MB check results attached. I'm not providing Farbar results. There is way too much sensitive data included, so I hope you can troubleshooot without it. Windows 10 1703 (OS 15063.138) Firefox 52.0.2 (32-bit) Malwarebytes 3.0.6.1469, Component 1.0.103, Update 1.0.1819 logs.zip MB-CheckResult.txt
  12. Hi People, had great advice from this forum in dealing with malware in the past. Seem to have problems again. I downloaded a new copy of MPC video player and afterwards received a pop-up window suggesting I use an add-on called Searchlock. As I always do, i did a Google to see if it was safe and saw only malware alerts and didn't click on it. However it is still affecting my Firefox browser. This is now operating in a limited function. The right click menu of options is curtailed to only four. The font and clean frames of each tabbed window are no longer there. I have run Malwarebytes and Adware but the problem still persists. Can I have some help regarding getting rid of this? Thanking you in advance.
  13. With Malwarebytes ver 2 AND Anti-Exploit installed everything was fine. Since updating to ver3, Firefox is blocked from opening as long as anti heap spraying for browser is active. Once turned OFF, Firefox opens as expected. This is Windows 7 Home 64. Anti heap spraying had been active in Anti Exploit and browsers worked fine. I have tried disabling all add-ons in Firefox but no help.
  14. This one really had me tearing my hair out..... Subsequent to an MB automatic update, two older PC's in the same office, both running Windows 10 32-bit with latest MS patches, began to experience issues with loading the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox. In the case of Chrome, it would display boxes for a few different extensions saying they had "crashed." These extensions included Adobe Acrobat and Google Hangouts. I searched the Google forums, and nothing they suggested worked. Then someone suggested Norton AV could be causing the problem. But that wasn't it. It was Malwarebytes. With it completely turned off, the browsers would load with no problems. The fix I finally came up isn't at all optimal, but I had no choice. Went to Settings:Protection:Manage Protected Applications. From there I turned off protection for Chrome and Firefox. It solved the problem on both machines. Both machines had startup pages that pointed to Google. But the site didn't matter. I couldn't access ANY site at all until I made these changes. I haven't seen this issue arise on 64-bit Windows 10 machines and no problems on any of the Macs. I sure don't like the idea of folks surfing the web with no malware protection, but they have to be able to do their work. If anyone knows of a better fix, I would be grateful if you would share it. Thanks!
  15. OK, I updated to this latest version on my Windows 10 machine and now Chrome and Firefox and Adobe Reader have stopped working and will only work if I turn Anti-Exploit protection OFF for each of those apps. I deactivated, uninstalled, ran MB-clean, with reboots in between all step, reinstalled and reactivated and still having the same problem. I was asked to start a new topic and include all of these logs that I attached. Please advise. Thanks FRST.txt logs.zip MB-CheckResult.txt Addition.txt
  16. Hi. I'm running Windows 7 and MB Premium 3.0.6. I think there was an update recently after which Firefox has been crashing at start up. Firefox tell me that it's MB Exploit Protection (or a conflict between it and Norton Internet Security) that's causing the crash. From info on another thread, I've tried adding various mb*.exe and mb drivers to Norton's ignore list but the only thing that stops Firefox crashing is switching off MB Exploit Protection. Any ideas? TIA Dave
  17. I have windows 10. I open firefox and a fake firefox urgent patch screen opens (see attached png.) I haven't opened it. When I plug in firefox-patch.js into windows 10 search window I get the original file which is a JavaScript File (2.5KB) dated July and a copy dated August. When I did a google search, it indicated it was a trojan. Any idea how to get rid of this file safely?
  18. I also have this firefox-patch-js and would like to remove it. I did not install. I always close it out but it keeps popping back up. I ran Malwarebytes and my avast anti virus but they found nothing.
  19. Enclosing FRST.txt and Addition.txt; please help - I accidentally installed the firefox patch. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  20. hello everyone with latest version, i am issue with my firefox, it become random freeze/lag ... not sure if it related to add-on or what, at first i thought the bug in lastest update causing it (51.0.1) but then what i notice is from firefox crash report : 1 mbae.dll mbae.dll@0x236db 3 mbae.dll mbae.dll@0x23a43 i believe mbae.dll is malwarebytes files, how can i make malwarebytes less protective with firefox ? i know i can turn off firefox in "protected application" but it seems not recommended, for testing i disabled it at the moment and see if this fix random freeze in my firefox i tried disable "web protection" but as it seems more to ip/domain filtering rather than looking/hooking firefox, it not fix issue with my freezing/lag firefox anyone else got similar issue ? or someone can recommend me how to dealt with this issue
  21. For the past week or so, MBAE has randomly shown a warning message about an exploit attempt, and then closed Firefox. When I start up Firefox again, sometimes the warning and closure will repeat immediately, but other times everything functions normally. Occasionally, I will get the warning message as I am *closing* Firefox. There doesn't appear to be any specific action on my part or on Firefox's to cause the warning and closure; sometimes it occurs without any action at all. If I stop MBAE's protection, Firefox works without any problem. I suppose this could be an actual warning of a blocked exploit attempt, but it happens too frequently (and on more than one network) for me to believe that the warnings are not false positives. Here are my vital statistics: I'm on a Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series with an 4th gen Intel i7 chip and 8 gigs of RAM under Windows 7 Pro. I am using MBAE 1.05.1.1016 and Firefox 34.0; a zipped copy of the entire MBAE logs directory folder is attached. applications.zip
  22. Hi there dev, Its not a new problem,,,since 3 previous versions mbae cannot let me open firefox downloaded files (used to fix this by CLEAN reinstalling mbae ) Every time i open or open folder from firefox downloads firefox crashes with the error "an exploit code was blocked" memory heap protection or something (included logs below virustotal link Virustotal scan report) I tried to do the same on firefox safemode issue persisted(firefox40-46) . Also tried folder open command from firefox CLI (Shift+F2) got the same error...using avast ,mbae,mbam free,mbarw beta (issue was occuring even before the days of mbarw beta) Any way to fix this????(FRST Scan included) This is becoming a royal pain Thanks in advanced 1Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.zip FRST.txt
  23. Malwarebytes AntiExplot is causing Firefox to slow to a crawl when saving files. As an example, when i go here - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/, download the x64 version of Firefox i get the "Save File" dialogue box pop up no problem, however under General Settings in Firefox i have "Always ask me where to save files" ticked so i should then get a file save location dialogue box pop up. However, if i have Firefox ticked Under Exploit Protection in Malwarebytes Protection tab then Firefox freezes for about 20 - 30 seconds before the dialogue box appears and then using it is very slow. I've also noticed a general sluggishness to Firefox with the Anti Exploit module enabled for Firefox. If i turn Firefox off under Under Exploit Protection in Malwarebytes Protection tab then all these problems go away. I run Windows 10 version 10.0.14393 & Windows Defender on 64bit Firefox, however this also happened on 32bit Firefox and whilst using Bitdefender Free.
  24. I am running Malwarebytes premium on Win 10 Malwarebytes version: 3.0.5.1299 Component package version: 1.0.43 Update package version: 1.0.1021 Whenever I try to run a browser and malwarebytes at the same time I get a BSOD. I had heard about issues with addons so I deleted chromes add ons but still BSOD. I then downloaded firefox and still got a BSOD. When I am not running MB my computer does not crash. When I am running MB and no browser then my computer does not crash. MB worked great on my last HDD running win10 but this is a new HDD with everything newly installed. Anyone have any ideas on a fix for this?
