  1. My wife's MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) running Yosemite (10.10.5) had its Chrome browser hijacked by "Search Encrypt" 3 days ago. I spent the evening following online recommendations: 1) removing the offending extension or app - NONE FOUND 2) within Chrome "Restore settings to their original defaults" - DIDN'T WORK 3) Remove Chrome and various files & pref's from Library; 3A) Downloaded and ran Malwarebytes - Didn't find anything 3B) and then download and do fresh install of Chrome. - This worked - UNTIL she re-synced bookmarks, etc from her Google account. Chrome was immediately re-hijacked as before. 4) For now, I've re-deleted Chrome, and she's using Safari, though it is greatly impeding her normal work flow in her school classroom. SO... I need help! I assume that Search Encrypt has hidden something in what's synced to her Google account, and it may be synced into her Android phone also, though she hasn't mentioned any problems there yet. Any recommendations would be appreciated!
  2. Hello all, Earlier today I mistakenly installed some unknown piece of software which resulted in the infection of several Trojan and Adware files on my PC. The files were being generated everywhere, in random folders with random names upon startup and chrome would be opening new tabs indefinitely. By using Malwarebytes without internet connection it seemed that I had managed to fix this issue. The logs were coming with zero threats. However, when browsing YouTube and other sites via Chrome I seemed to get some unfamiliar behavior/ads. I checked my extensions and removed one I did not recognize (chrome_filter). Then I noticed two things: my Google page was "google.ga" (from Gabon), and when I actually searched for anything the address bar would change to my-search.com/"whatever term I searched her". Thus, I tried to reinstall chrome using MS Edge. On edge I'm getting some ads with "Aura" written on their bottom (which I searched online and seems to be malware-related) and I'm also getting Google.ga in there, but no "my-search" redirection. There are some empty popups that appear which I blocked. I tried reinstalling chrome anyway and I got an error saying that the chrome installer couldn't connect to Google's network and suggested I checked my firewalls. Finally, I've just run Malwarebytes again with Rootkit and inside archives options turned on and I got the attached log - I quarantined the 4 infected files. I'm also attaching FRTS log with the "addition.txt" file. Any help? Thanks in advance log.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt
  3. Hello, Back in May of this year I reported a bug to Malwarebytes by email about the Malwarebytes For Chrome browser extension conflicting with the Video DownloadHelper extension for Chrome, and this bug was confirmed by Malwarebytes after I reported it by email months ago. Here is an edited version of my report from back then: This conflict is still there, I was asked to report it here when I emailed Malwarebytes again to see if this bug was on the list of bugs to be fixed. This problem is pretty annoying for me and has prevented me from using the Malwarebytes extension for long, I have to keep disabling it, and so I usually give up using it until the next version comes out hoping that it will be fixed. I like the Malwarebytes extension and I would like to be able to use it again full-time one day and recommend it to others if this problem is fixed one day. Thank you, -John Jr
  4. Hello everyone, I just read this article and got a little worried: https://www.howtogeek.com/fyi/bing-is-pushing-malware-when-you-search-for-chrome/ I have three quick questions that I hope someone could help me with: 1. If you actually run that phony installer, will it still act as the official installer? As in everything will act normally but you actually have a hidden malware in your Chrome? 2. If I installed Chrome a while ago, how can I check that my installation is genuine and not a fake Google Chrome? I don' have the installer anymore. 3. Would a Malwarebytes scan detect a bad installation? I ran a scan and it didn't find anything. Thank you and have an awesome day!
  5. I have random popups of a red screen regarding a Chrome problem and it gives me phone numbers to call. I have Malware Pro and Malware AdBlock. How can I remove this?
  6. Just a heads up, today Chrome dropped down a settings window, here's the results: I'm not forced to remove it, but thought I should mention it here. ...now me? ...I'll delete Chrome before I'll delete MB anti Exploit. Respond if there's something I should know guys, and thanks
  7. Hello, My pc apparently has been infected with annoying adware. When I start up my PC, a CMD window flashes, then chrome starts up with an ad page called www.dipladoks.org I ran Malwarebytes, Windows Defender, even in safe mode. I cleaned up my chrome settings, and checked my PC using chrome, yet nothing seems to work
  8. This is a very severe issue for me!!!! Everytime I reboot my computer or shut it down and reboot it up and login and then try to launch chrome, it does not open whatsoever. As soon as I take malwarebytes off the computer, chrome is happy. This is a serious problem. I absolutely whatsoever cannot open chrome. And if I am lucky enough to get it open, none of it will load properly and it will just lockup if I try to click in the search. Sometimes I am able to get chrome open just fine and other times it may take shutting down the computer repeatedly.
  9. This morning I had a Google Chrome Critical Error screen pop up.. It said that my computer was trying to be attacked for financial info (or something along those lines). It gave me a number to call and I didn't call it obviously. I ran my Premium Malwarbytes Scan and nothing showed up. I ran my AVG and nothing showed up. I have the payments protection on AVg off because it was conflicting with quick start up. Computer seems normal. Should I do anything else, or just see if it pops up again.
  10. Getting a prompt from Chrome to remove Malwarebytes. Chrome keeps shutting down and when I restart, I get this message: This application could prevent Chrome from working properly. Application Malwarebytes version 3.5.1.2522 Remove
  11. 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.
  12. I have suddenly started getting: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 9/9/18 Protection Event Time: 7:58 AM Log File: b1b168ca-b3fd-11e8-8d5b-5404a601e55b.json -Software Information- Version: 3.5.1.2522 Components Version: 1.0.441 Update Package Version: 1.0.6723 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 17134.228) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System -Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 , , Blocked, [-1], [-1],0.0.0 -Website Data- Category: Malvertising Domain: IP Address: 92.242.132.24 Port: [55636] Type: Outbound File: C:\Windows\System32\smartscreen.exe (end) Every time I start Chrome.

  14. I refreshed Windows 10 and installed Chrome and Adobe Reader from their corresponding website and installed Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner later. When I ran Malwarebytes, it classified a threat as malware, name is MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%, location is C:\PROGRAMDATA\ADOVE\ARM\{291AA914-A987-4CE9-BD63-AC0A92D435E5}\BITA73A.TMP (I took note of this). For AdwCleaner, it detected 2 Chromium Search Provider: Ask and AOL. It took 2 times to remove both of them (1st time AOL failed). And I think either MBAM or AdwCleaner detected some registry keys relating to IObit Uninstaller on Edge. I proceeded to do a clean installation of Windows 10 using my boot flashdrive. I do not know if I can re-install Chrome, IObit Uninstaller and Adobe Reader. Anyone has same issues? Those are pretty common softwares and the fact that there is malware, PUP and strange registry keys made me scare to install any software on my system now.
  15. In Chrome on Windows x64 Pro under chrome://settings/incompatibleApplications I see: Lenovo Patch Utility 64 bit Malwarebytes version 3.5.1.2522 I'n running Chrome Version 68.0.3440.106 (Official Build) (64-bit). I read that in v69, chrome will be blocking these apps, and in v72 they will always block them. What is the future of this MB Chrome app?
  16. Hello all, I have recently noticed that Google Chrome browser version 68.0.3440.84 (64 bit) has been displaying periodically a message that my Malwarebytes version 3.5.1.2522 needs to be updated or removed due to it being incompatible. So I disabled the Chrome Browser settings in the advanced protection area of Malwarebytes as well as the protected applications area to no success so I re-enabled those settings and disabled the web protection and exploit protection and the message is now gone......obviously this is totally unacceptable so I am throwing this out to the forums to see if anyone else has experienced this issue and to find out if a resolution has been found. PS...I also enabled Beta versions and tried to update to a Beta version in hopes of a fix but unfortunately there was no Beta version to be had. PSS......I have also submitted a ticket with the support tool and will post the results to this post if nobody else has posted a resolution by the time tech support resolves my ticket.
  17. Hello. After reading those scary things about adf.ly and even reading this post: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/140423-adfly-redirecting-my-chrome-browser/ , I decided to search for protection from adfly, because i can in the future meet with this website when downloading something. So my question is: Is AdSkipper ( a program that bypasses the 5 second wait) safe? Disclaimer: I don't have any type of adware i think, i have a MWB Premium trial for 6 days left, i have Adwcleaner and Roguekiller installed, I have been on adf.ly during the trial of MWB and it protected me from hijack. Link to Chrome Web Store AdSkipper application: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/adskipper?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon Link to AdSkipper's site: http://adfly-skipper.blogspot.com/ Thanks.

  19. Recently I have gotten a warning when using Chrome Canary that MBAE is an incompatible application. I am using the beta version of MBAE. Canary is an omen of what normal Chrome will become. So far my standard version of Chrome does not show the same warning, but eventually it will. I posted this problem on the Chromium Bug Log and was linked to this page: https://blog.chromium.org/2017/11/reducing-chrome-crashes-caused-by-third.html An excerpt from the page, "in September 2018, Chrome 69 will begin blocking third-party software from injecting into Chrome processes. If this blocking prevents Chrome from starting, Chrome will restart and allow the injection, but also show a warning that guides the user to remove the software. Finally, in January 2019, Chrome 72 will remove this accommodation and always block code injection." Which by my interpretation means that after Jan. 2019, MBAE will no longer work with Chrome. Am I wrong in assuming that paid Malwarebytes will have the same problem. Here's a couple of pics of the present warning in Canary.

  22. Hello all, my first time posting in this forum, sincerest apologies if this is the wrong place to post this. My computer has been infected with something that causes gambling/bitcoin websites to pop up randomly. It also causes anti malware programs to close and malware related web searches to be closed as well. I have conducted scans in safe mode with Malwarebytes, spybot and avast free antivirus to no avail. Hope that this forum will be able to help me ? Thank you!
  23. Upgraded to Bullguard Premium and now get errors to remove MalwareBytes as incompatible with Chrome. Not sure if the Bullguard upgrade had anything to do with it, but noted it.
  24. Hello community, i'm facing a weird issue with google chrome. After updating my malwarebytes to version 3.5.1.2522 (component package version: 1.0.374 and update package version: 1.0.5468), i can't open my google chrome. Malwarebytes anti-exploit keeps on blocking google chrome from opening. I uninstalled and reinstalled google chrome, removed all the extensions, deleted profiles, installed Google chrome canary but nothing seems to be working. I also contacted google chrome support forum and followed everything they suggested but nothing works. Could someone help me in fixing this annoying problem please? all other browsers work absolutely fine. below is the report i extracted from malwarebytes when it blocks chrome from opening. regards, Amil Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 6/13/18 Protection Event Time: 8:11 AM Log File: 043362cb-6ed9-11e8-bb6b-002186bfd015.json Administrator: Yes -Software Information- Version: 3.5.1.2522 Components Version: 1.0.374 Update Package Version: 1.0.5456 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 CPU: x86 File System: NTFS User: System -Exploit Details- File: 0 (No malicious items detected) Exploit: 1 Malware.Exploit.Agent.Generic, , Blocked, [0], [392684],0.0.0 -Exploit Data- Affected Application: Google Chrome (and plug-ins) Protection Layer: Protection Against OS Security Bypass Protection Technique: Exploit ROP gadget attack blocked File Name: URL: (end)
  25. At least once a minute, for 15 minutes, from 11:27 to 11:42 local time, MalwareBytes notified me that it was blocking an outgoing connection to howlong.top at the IP address 109.206.182.9 and the port 60089, referencing that the connection was coming from Chrome and telling me the website was being blocked for malware threats. I've been using the premium trial of MalwareBytes for a bit now, and it expires in about 3 days. I performed a manual scan that found nothing as soon as I realized something may be wrong, and after it concluded, I got about 1 or 2 more notifications that the site had been blocked, but it has now stopped while I've been writing this. malwareblock.txt scanreport.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt
