So I've been getting connections from strange IP's for a long time and Malwarebytes has always notified me of it and classified the attempts as malware. These attempts would usually happen around 4-5 times a week for the past 5 months or so and Malwarebytes Premium would show no additional information on the attempts apart from IP & Port. Recently though these attempts have been much more frequent (3-9 times a day) and coming from different IP's and sometimes even showing domains which also are different from each other. Instead of saying it was an attempt to infect my PM with malware it now says it was a Trojan instead. I've scanned my PC with Malwarebytes Premium, Adwcleaner and Avast with no results each time. Just recently I've been looking into the IP's with different online tools: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/ https://www.virustotal.com/#/home/url These would show that most of the IP's that Malwarebytes would inform me as Trojan infect attempts are trying to infect me with the Zero-day malware. One of the recent IP's I had checked was this and it seems to be a spam bot (from a botnet most likely) trying to infect PC's with the Zero-day malware. https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/ip/22.214.171.124 Most frightening is the fact that after after using a VPN or even double proxies they still manage to connect to me. I'm using NordVPN and even then I am getting spammed. Majority of the attempts only show the type of the malware and the IP. Not domain or the file it was coming from (assuming I have something on my PC that lets them connect to me through changing my IP address. So is my PC, information and files in danger with how things are now, or am I safe? Sorry the text on the image is in Finnish. Also not sure if the topic is in a wrong category, move it if it is.
Hi, So my problem is that I downloaded a cracked game... (I know, I know, its full of malware) but this time I messed up and I got .exe that I think installed a malware, now it's opening a random spam tab in chrome every 40 mins or so. So first things that I did was deleting the .exe, after that, I went to Task Manager and saw that a unnamed Program was using 50% of my CPU... I went to File location and it was svhost... I then run a MalwareBytes scan with free premium trial and deleted everything that I didn't know what it was. So now what I do is I task kill the unnamed thing, but that doesnt block it from opening chrome pages... P.S: sorry for my bad English I'm from Portugal.
Hi I like to report an suspicious email from yesterday, heres what it said.: Hello. Dont consider on my grammar, I am from China.We loaded our virus on your OS.Now I thiefted all personal data from your device. In addition I have some more evidence.The most amusing compromising which I have- its a videotape with your masturbation.I put malware on a porn web site and after you downloaded it. When you picked the video and clicked on a play, my deleterious soft instantly downloaded on your Operating System. After adjusting, your web camera shoot the videotape with you self-abusing, furthermore I captured the video you chose. In next few days my deleterious soft collected all your social and work contacts. Its obviously a scam because one thing I use Linux to surf the web and really don't touch free porn sites. And this person finishes by saying: If you desire to erase all the evidence- pay me 640 usd in BTC(cryptocurrency). I provide you my Btc address - 19U6ZoDKgaxHcnvNYXTeucpUWrMMav7PQE and hers there email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I run a computer repair shop here in Central Florida and we are also an affiliate with CleverBridge to push Malwarebytes to our customers on a regular basis, because it is an excellent product and we stand by it 100%. The only thing that's a bugger are the non-stop notifications that pop up for those that use the free version. With previous editions of Malwarebytes it was never, ever this bad. I understand you want people to purchase your product, but please take my advice on this one — these "UPGRADE NOW" notifications just annoy people and make them want to uninstall it. This practice isn't anything new, especially with anti-malware software, I get that. Even if you could just reduce the notifications to purchase the premium version to just once within the 14 days would be an improvement, not every single time they turn on their computer. We explain to every customer that after the 14 days they'll need to manually run scans periodically to ensure they're free from malware — and majority are ok with that — the pop-ups are what they can't deal with. Just some friendly advice, and I hope you take it into serious consideration. Cheers!
