  1. Hello everyone, I am a long time user of MalwareBytes Free and believe it good practice to run a good AV and Malware tools as standard PC security. I am raising this query because i have seen anomalies over a long time (over a year) and am now thinking it could be the security products. I run the latest Avast Free AV and Malware Bytes free along with Hotspot shield free VPN. i regularly do Avast boot time scans and Malware Bytes HDD scans in windows. After these scans occasionally i see odd issues ranging from file associations reverting back, occasional application reinstalls and like today outlook not opening due to a corruption in the Avast add in. A Avast reinstall fixed this. If anyone can advise me on: 1) Do i need separate AV and malware protection? 2) Does Avast free AV and Malware Bytes free work together? 3) If MalwareBytes does not work well with Avast free AV can any good AV be recommended. Any help is appreciated.
  2. I was trying to install one package from internet and I have installed some kind of malware by mistake. It spawns an app inside ~/Applications after some time. Overall app has same icon every time. It is magnifier tool on green/blue background. Once app is called SoftwareIndexer and another time TypeInditator. App is turning itself and it kills safari, clears all tabs and spawns new instance of safari. If Safari is closed it spawns a new instance. Nothing else. App deletion fixes this behaviour but after sometime it is respawned again.
  3. I keep getting a URL:Mal threat secured notification from my Avast antivirus software. When I run I scan using Avast, it picks up no virus, malware or suspicious threat. When I run a scan in malware bytes it also picks up no malware, viruses or threats. How do i remove this? I am running mac. The threat keeps coming up as being from the following links i have i have never been on before: upd-pct.info/ or pctupd.info/ . I did some research on this, and found out it is coming from PopcornTime which is a P2P app for watching movies. I immediately deleted the app and all its contents but the pop still comes every 5 hours or so. I still have not been able to find any solid information on how to remove this threat. I fear this may be a new malware or virus that neither Avast or Malwarebytes is aware of, and it constantly trying to connect to the internet in the background, which is when avast blocks the attempt. I cannot fins any information on how to remove this threat, please help me.
  4. Hello, This is my first time in this forum, Requesting the concerned person to remove the following domain name from Malware list as it's a valid ecommerce site. The URL is: https://www.meenaclick.com Quick action would be highly appreciated. Thanks & Regards S N Alam
  5. about 3 weeks ago I had to download a software from a site I don't trust called "get into pc" and after about 10 days I noticed windows defender doesn't exist anymore, windows update not working and the pc takes much longer to boot so I downloaded malware bytes and did a scan. It detected 27 malware elements trojans, something called bitcoin miner and some other things, I quarantined them all and installed a new windows and after about a week or so everything happened again and windows defender is deleted again and the pc rakes longer and when I scanned by malwarebytes it detected the same 27 malware elements although I deleted the software I downloaded from that site.. what should I do ?
  6. Hello! I am on my Mac and I am reviewing the installations on System Info and I see two dates that call my attention, on May 4 2020 and April 13 2020, I didn't installed Malwarebytes on those dates and it's reported as if I had when I didn't. I first installed Malwarebytes on March 12, 2020 and on May 18, 2020 but not on this previously mentioned dates. Why is it reported this way?
  7. Hello. Since I updated my windows 10 (this morning), Malwarebytes keeps showing a pop-up of "Website blocked due to phishing" And this is - it. And these are the advanced "info" - Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 7/6/20 Protection Event Time: 8:45 AM Log File: e7aa89d8-bf4b-11ea-af68-00d861d43d5b.json -Software Information- Version: 4.1.0.56 Components Version: 1.0.972 Update Package Version: 1.0.26459 License: Trial -System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 18362.900) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System -Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 , C:\Windows\System32\PING.EXE, Blocked, -1, -1, 0.0.0 -Website Data- Category: Phishing Domain: window-updates-service.com IP Address: 151.106.15.12 Port: 0 (No malicious items detected) Type: Outbound File: C:\Windows\System32\PING.EXE (end) I want to know if it is a real problem or it is not.

  8. Good morning everyone, I'm new in this forum, I really hope you can help me. Yesterday I've find something strange in the behaviour of the PC: Windows Defender doesn't find any problem but when I open its history it crashes. I've find the name of the maleware before the last crash (Trojan:PowerShell/Mountsi.A!ml). Running MalwareBytes I've found some malewares so I eliminate them but the problem is still there! Thanks.
  9. I was recently on opera and noticed a search bar pop up on the top of the screen, when you click on the search bar it takes you to a fake search engine and whenever you search something it takes you to a yahoo page I figured it was malware so I even downloaded Malwarebytes right off the bat and ran a scan. Nothing was found. I found the malware in control panel and deleted it but it is still there. I've re-ran Malwarebytes and nothing is found but I can't find a way to prevent this search bar from appearing on the top of my screen. Any thoughts on what I need to do?
  10. Hi, I had been having awful trouble for a while with webpages not loading "resolving host" issues, in multiple browsers. I thought it was chrome so I changed to the new Edge chromium After searching for answers I came across a number of people having the same problem and the cause seemed to be Malware bytes and mainly real-time protection. I turned real time protection off, and have now run for two weeks with a 99% improvement, I wondered if you could check for me. Last week I collected the log reports to upload here (attached) I think I also had trouble when running the free version though, Im not sure I wondered if you could confirm this and what to do about it, I paid for a premium subscription on 3rd april 2020 but was running free version before Many thanks for any help mbst-grab-results.zip
  11. The program isn't showing up as the Free or Premium version, I bought a key but whenever I try to activate it it can't connect to the license server. I reset all the firewall settings but it didn't work. Here are the grab results from the support tool. mbst-grab-results.zip
  12. So I unfortunately encountered a malware when I tried to download a game from unknown sources. It was the SAntivirus one and it even installed the SAntivirus Lite on my laptop. I detected it and uninstalled the app and after that even used malwarebytes to check for potential threats and quarantined the Trojans and PPUs detected. But my laptop is still slowing down to the point where it takes almost twice/thrice the time to open up application and boot. I would really like someone's help. It you want I am ready to run scans and share the same here. I fear I might not have access to the scan result of when I removed the SAntivirus malware but I will have to check. I am obliged to anyone who helps me
  13. here's the logs you need. i have no idea where i got the RAT from since i didn't download anything sketchy.

  14. Hi, so one day I was playing Minecraft and almost took a break but somebody was moving my mouse! So I went into airplane mode and scanned around but didn't find anything. I reset my PC with settings and I read that RATs can survive resets so I want to get my system rid of all rootkits and RATs and hidden malware.
  15. Hello, I have problems with g****.tmp.exe, it use RAM and CPU in process. I read some topic in forum and know i need Fixlist.txt checked by some of you. Here are my file after run FRST64, hope someone can help me. Thank you in advance! Sorry for my bad grammar English. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  16. After launching game it crashed, after I tried to delete the folder it was open in another application. Using Process Explorer I found that it opened a schtask.exe. I looked in Task Scheduler and found a GoogleUpdateTaskMachineUAC that hasn't run yet, but it was linked to a file in Roaming/d_temp/sevices.exe with the game's logo. The game was scanned by ESET nod32 before I ran it. Malwarebytes free didn't detect anything neither did the Rootkit protection or the windows security.
  17. my dekstop has been infected by tojan.agent, i already use both malwarebytes and adwcleaner. but on adwcleaner, i cant delete the trojan.agent on c:\windows\rss folder. im still using my windows defender, and the virus still apearing everytime i turn on my dekstop. i dont have any idea to do now, can someone help me? thankyou!
  18. I was invaded on my Mac running Catalina 10.15.5 by MacKeeper. Everyone thinks it's just a virus scanner app that has bad code but the company is worse than what it appears. I will attach some files that they took over to take full control of my Mac and wanted 200 to go on it with their techs and "clean" the viruses and malware that I had. When I told them no I got the full brunt of their invasion. They quickly ran a js file that installed their ransomware before I could disconnect my mac from the internet completely. I then spent a day tracking all the files and broke them into readable code so I could see what it was doing. Here was my first clue that I wasn't getting my Mac system drive back. This is from the System/Driverkit/Runtime/.../kernal/.../info.plist: Note that it changed the package type to 'FMWK' and the signature is '????'. I went looking for files installed by FMWK and found it had rewritten the code in my grammar checker for chrome to include thousands of lines of code. It took over root and all the groups. It added it's own acct and changed the root/admin password so I couldn't undo their program or kill it. It had a line of code in it that basiclly said, "if any of my files are changed or missing to add them back right away." I did try a lot of deephack moves on their code but it would just put itself back. It added hundreds of files in all different types such as js, php, xml, css, de, oss, json, h, c, html, intime, py, ssh, and more. They wrote files into the usr/local/opt, opt/x11/bin, lib/ext, lib/apple, sys/vol/data and added a burred directory called /zz/. They captured my fingerprint reader because I have all my passwords in a safe. This they used to control what I could get to and do. They added com.apple.lockoutagent and webpack bootstrap so neither I nor Apple support could use the system recovery section to rewrite the system. The grammar file base app was called Grammerly_popupeditor-denali.js. so I took it that they were from India. And I could go on for a long while about the code I found in these files but I couldn't do anything about it. I finally gave into the fact that they had won the battle and I totally cleaned the system drive and wiped my Mac til I knew it was clean. Then I used an external boot drive to reinstall the system. It's a good thing they couldn't get to my apple id password or my icloud id because they trashed my TimeMachine backup drive too and made it a mess. I had a couple of long days and nights breaking down what they had done and to what extent then reinstalling my system. I'm writing this account of their activities so other will be ware and maybe someone higher than me (Apple) will put them on the blacklist. Yes I did have Norton installed and it would have stopped them but they thought of everything and erased the main .exe file before they installed all this mess. Of course I could not reinstall it or any other app too. There are names for people like this that I won't say. I just hope someone shuts them down before we loose a government computer or something else important. It has taught me a valuable lesson in cybersecurity and that is to do better at it. They will get theirs someday. I found them out and so will others. Please put them on the blacklist Apple.
  19. Hello! I deleted my trash the other day and has happened to me twice that some random files re appear in trash after deletion, does this have to di with malware or just a simple bug?
  20. Hello there, I have a dell vostro 5568. I had to get the motherboard changed and now the board is from dell 7460. I get this message at start up :- Alert! TPM device not detected. I checked the boot menu and under the security tab there is no option related to TPM. The problem: I cannot run anything as admin. I have just one user account and that is the admin. Whenever i download any exe file, i am unable to install it. I tried changing the user account settings, but it wont let me change the default settings to let third party apps get installed. I tried using safe mode but the antivirus wont work because of BFE is turned off error. Please help me. Either this is virus or TPM. I dont know.
  21. Im not a malware expert but it seems it have infected the windows installer msiexec.exe and sending or receiving data through internet to a domain "4nbizac8.ru" , malwarebytes categorizes it as an adware and blocks it. But the malware keeps repeating itself every 4-5 seconds it cannot be stopped. Malwarebytes keep notifying that it successfully blocked it every 4-5 seconds. I ran the scanner multiple times but it cannot fix it, its up to date. Here is the log : (end)
  22. Now this happened about 3 months ago I have long before reset my PC to windows 10 by now but for some mysterious reason my ABV.bg email has been repeatedly getting hacked every time! even tho last time I changed my password to be unique combination of 30 symbols and letters including the secret question and answer. Its still getting mysteriously hacked and at this point its obvious the information is being leaked from my PC so the trojan/keylogger/hijacker or whatever has not been removed even tho I did repeated Malwarebytes scans and I even scanned with Bitdefender in boot environment still no such luck! Yesterday I saw about total of 74 SVHOST.exe processes in my task manager and I don't wanna say all of them are viruses but I doubt windows needs that many processes to run! So something is definitely up here! As for the virus I had in February that hijacked my browser immediately after I found my email hacked I checked my Temp folder and what do i find multitude of unknown files scattered on about I put them all in a 7zip archieve in case I need them to be give them to a professional for analyzing etc! The hacker had even hijacked my wifi (I even found some chinese characters within the wifi app pointing at some access point in some chinese province) I am pretty sure so at this point I am not even sure if its DNS hijack or browser hijack...or whatever hijack the trojan just keeps appearing and this time he seems to be not leaving any files on HDD so I am not sure if its using fake windows processes or services I need to get rid of the malicious files before trying another clean system install... The FRST.zip logs I have provided are from Safe mode scan today in Windows 10 I included some older ones too from previous months! FRST.zip temp folder viruses package.7z FRST 09th-05 Logs.zip FRST 27th-04 Logs.zip
  23. Hello. I fell for something today and got a bit screwed, I've had my PC crash twice and I'm a bit worried because Malwarebytes hasn't found anything and something else fishy is up. When the first crash occurred there was like this womans photo plastered on the "crashed" screen, never seen that photo in my life lmao. If you look at my screenshot, when I open the program, it shows that everything is enabled but my taskbar shows the ! sign and shows that protection is not enabled - very odd. First time this has happened too. I uhh.. uninstalled the frowned upon executables. Any help would be nice, thank you for your time. scan.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt
  24. Some weeks ago I realizad my Malwarebytes date is wrong. On "next scan" it says 01/01/21 and last scan says it was on 31/12/20. In the little icon at the top of the Mac screen says that scans are being done daily but when I check reports I can see that suddenly scheduled scans are not being performed. I deleted the app and downloade it again and I think it's working fine now but I still would like to know why this happened, I am a bit worried. Thanks
  25. Hi all, First time with this type of trouble and I've come across this forum via a Google search which I had started reading through this thread here: I will try to do my best here in understanding and communicating with the everyone and your knowledge. Thank you in advance for any help. I'll try and keep this simple and broken down into what I know. To start I am running Windows 10 on a Cyberpower PC that I purchased about 3 months ago. As briefly as I can be I use this PC strictly for iRacing and use only a limited number of applications that run along with it. I use Chrome as a web browser which is pretty much just familiarity and a preference. This whole adventure started when the command prompt opened on me in the middle of a race. I noticed in the task bar following this race that Internet Explorer and Chromium were there. Not thinking too much of it as this was the first time it happened I unpinned them and continued what I was doing. This happened again several hours later and I got to investigating this Chromium deal. I am now familiar with what it is and how it works and I also learned more about Electron and how it operates some of the apps I use such as Discord and Simracingapps. More familiar with how this all comes together I continued with trying to get these apps removed. Im almost positive I had uninstalled Chromium via the command prompt and a hidden folder in This PC>Windows(C:)>Users. I also took a second look at SAntivirus which is my fault for not noticing sooner and I found out all about that.. I followed instructions to remove SAntivirus by rebooting in "Safe Mode with Networking". The following step is to download and install Malwarebytes. As there seems to be no way to connect via WI-FI in this mode (which is currently all I am able to use) I downloaded on my Surface and tried to install but it still needs to download during this time so I could not do so. I went on to the next steps as they were 2 more removal softwares so I figured leaving one out would be just fine. These were HitmanPro and then Adwdefender. Following the instructions to reboot after the Adwdefender scan all I booted to was a black screen. I restarted using the power button on the tower out of frustration at this point with this already being a 4 hour headache. When I powered back on I navigated back to where I was given the options that included "Safe Mode with Networking" and others. Since I was familiar with that one during this process I chose it. Boot to black screen. Reset again and believe I chose the startup troubleshooting after finding it and chose some type of boot recovery. This is where i was starting to see red so I cant remember exactly and I dont want to really do much else on here using that route unless instructed to do so. But that sounds about right. This went through and finished and the pc booted and I am at my desktop and logged in. Now whatever it did to recover gave me a sigh of relief but now I have the apps that I originally started this process to try and remove(Chromium and SAntivirus)back again along with 2 or 3 others that I have decided not to use and had previously uninstalled. All I want is Chromium off of my computer for good. I'm sick of saying the word. I'm sick of looking at it. SAntivirus Realtime Protection Lite off my computer for good. I'm already planning on being more vigilant for these things as the SA snuck in thetr on me. Also using all three of these softwares in the future to help me do thst... if Malwarebytes doesn't hang up on installing that would be great too. Seems I'm at a point here where I can try this all again with some of your help. Thank you for your time, Ryan
