  1. For reasons unknown to me, this morning Mr. Malwarebytes Premium has sent me a few warnings indicated an "Exploit" attack: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 9/19/21 Protection Event Time: 4:26 AM Log File: 33d8f420-1923-11ec-af4a-3c2c309b2446.json -Software Information- Version: Components Version: 1.0.1453 Update Package Version: 1.0.45108 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 19043.1237) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System -Exploit Details- File: 0 (No malicious items detected) Exploit: 1 Malware.Exploit.Agent.Generic, ComSpec=C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe, Blocked, 0, 392684, 0.0.0, , -Exploit Data- Affected Application: Microsoft Office Word Protection Layer: Application Behavior Protection Protection Technique: Exploit Office WMI abuse blocked File Name: ComSpec=C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe URL: End.

  2. I was infected by zero day deeply integrated into system rootkit , that my current av (bitdefender) detected with behaviour detection , and removed it . For safety I clean install the windows . Everything went fine ,even full scan and rescue scan scan by Bitdefender went fine .Now , I am unable to install malwarebytes now , also malwares extension isn't working . Also I once found many suspected traffic from my device , again this time I formatted hard disk and then clean install windows . Still I find that many system files are getting corrupted now for no reason . Please check my system for any malware ,adware ,spyware , keylogger, viruses ,etc and check for especially rootkits (uefi , kernal , bootkit , mbr , virtualization ,ring 0 , ring 1 ,ring 3 , firmware ,etc) .Fabar recovery reports are in the attachment of this post. Thanks FRST.txt Addition.txt Shortcut.txt
  3. I would be interested to know if the current version (4.6.11) is already compatible not only with Big Sur, but also with Apple M1 or if a new version will be released (first obviously in beta). Before any future purchase, I would like to be sure that Malwarebytes can protect me. Thanks Have a good day Massimiliano
  4. I just logged in to my account ,. Browsing the Forum’s sections and as of sudden an error admin page is pop-up . screenshot of admin install error is attached and upload failed issue . (not even able to uploads anything to forum)
  5. HI . A quick qustin on what is Malware.AL detction about - what it meaning or refering to? regards / 👍
  6. I've been wanting to ask this question for a while now but didn't find anything related to this so I just ignored it. My space on the C drive is decreasing ever so slightly. Within 2 days I lost 4gb worth of storage and it seems to be decreasing drastically after scanning with malwarebytes. At first, because I was installing Creative Cloud/Steam and Unreal Engine I thought its a necessary decrease but after a while I observed that every Malwarebytes scan is taking up more storage than supposed to. Ran disk cleanup but only 200MB of junk was found. I just reset windows completely in fear of a trojan but this phenomenon still appears. I currently have the trial version of malwarebytes, real time protection is on so the possibility of an infection seems extremely low, as I just reset my pc and barely even have any software installed (all games and software are installed on a different drive as well). Should this happen? How do I know if I am infected when malwarebytes says I'm not? Could it be something else? Help.
  7. Hi why Malwarebytes Browser Guard is not basilisk web-browser support ? I hope to we have this web browser to be supported by MBG soon !
  8. I recently torrented software from a trusted uploaded on THAT website, and now something has access to my PC that shouldn’t possess it. Malware bytes and other anti malware software like adw and far are are being closed automatically. My free antivirus Avira is still working normally, and I’ve launched at least a dozen scans. It’s not reporting any further malware but I know it’s there. Notepad is among the software that auto closes as well. please advise, I do have a laptop nearby if that will help any. I’m ready at my phone to provide any necessary information.
  9. hello all . problem : a few well-known and trusts ones ad-blockers are no longer able to blocking the YouTube’s ads and this make me unhappy of course . I currently use ad-blocker from AD-guard company for android OS for mobile . this ad blocker was able to almost to blocking all ads but as of right now this one is no longer able to blocking the pop-ups ads with the default setting in the ad-guard so I had to hover up at their setting page and I have to put a check marks to all available option and now it blocking all YouTube’s ads but I now I have a new problem where the You tube video is no more playable and thus you’ll sees only black video screen . a suggestion : to have a brand new level browser protection for the android base users . a new protection layer from Malwarebytes company to fully guarding up the web-browser form any type of the annoying ads .
  10. I have been using Malwarebytes Premium for 3 days and im pretty content with it, however its missing some other features that might help making this anti-malware/antivirus software stronger and better. 1. Password Manager - Norton, Mcafee, bitdefender and etc have this feature, this would be really helpful if you added this, you can like put your passwords in an encrypted vault and such, 2. firewall - now this is a thing that i've said, other antivirus/anti-malware programs have. if this feautre is implemented the next update with some cool and useful features inside it, that'd be great! 3. camera protection - we all know camfecting is a common thing nowadays, i am very paranoid when it comes to things like these, it breaks your privacy, they can listen to some sensitive conversation you're talking about, and way more things. this'd be a perfect feature in the next updates of malwarebytes. 4. microphone protection/monitorer - other than camera protection, this is also a very useful feature, it like alerts you when a app or your microphone is in use. this'd be again, a good feature to add in the future updates of malwarebytes. now i can list down all the things that you guys can possibly add, but i'd figure that'd be too long to read, so this is the only 4 feautures i listed down, yall at the malwarebytes team can think of more useful features you can add in this software. thats basically it for my first forum post.
  11. I used Malwarebytes Free to scan my pc because of this stubborn Generic Trojan KD virus I could not remove. My anti virus that I'm using is Bitdefender. It detects and blocks it but it couldn't remove no matter what I do. I tried using other free malware alternatives but they still couldn't remove this Trojan. While Malwarebytes was scanning, it caused this issue. This happened before which is why I was hesitant in using and purchasing Malwarebytes. But after searching far and wide in the internet, many are praising malwarebytes as the best one out there. But my issue is that it causes this error and I can't fix it anymore. Please help me! Thank you
  12. links to prices are totally dead , error appears for when to clicking through the links in Malwarebytes Android application we’re planning to Purchasing Malwarebytes for Android in the few coming days when that is possible as we can . currently everything you want to gets becomes too hard to be on hand due to COVID19 Lockdown . Error Something went wrong on our end . Please try again.
  13. These popups can be extremely annoying and I don't know how to get rid of them. They popup at random and I would like to turn them off. (If it helps, I have already stopped my trial malwarebytes through account settings) Any help would be appreciated!
  14. Hi!

  15. Hello . an notification message about "Your Wi-Fi Connection is unsecured" is showed up on the right side corner of the screen! so what is this about ? Malwarebytes Premium Your Wi-Fi Connection is unsecured Your Internet activity may be visible to unauthorized parties. Malwarebytes Privacy can help secure your connection. such a message shouldn’t be to show up because Malwarebytes has no module to monitoring and protecting the device network like most anti-virus software . Malwarebytes is now a full anti-virus ?

  17. Hello everyone. I bought a licence for my Malwarebytes today. I tried activating it, but it wouldn't work. I am constantly presented with an "Error 404101" message and the indication that my Internet is to blame. As you can see, by me writing this right now, my Internet is working fine. I have allowed Malwarebytes through my Firewall and even used the Proxy option. Sadly no difference. My Malwarebytes refuses to connect to the internet. I am the admin of my Computer, so that cannot be the problem, either. It would be nice if someone had an idea what to do, since I am at my wits end. I tried to activate it over the Program I changed the Proxy I changed the language and Proxy I activated the licence over my Malwarebytes account on the website and tried to connect that to the program I tried at least 20 different tips I have seen online about this issue No result. I am from Germany and use the program for personal use. Please, someone, help! I don't want this to become an utter waste of 40€. Sincerest Thanks LBS
  18. I decided to download MALWAREBYTES and run it. It identifed lots of threats (all related to PUP.Optional.ASK PUP.Optional.Babylon and also PUP.Optional.Conduit) and quarantined them all. They were all located at the carpets \AppData\Local\Google\Chrome, etc... I ran another MALWAREBYTES scan but the malware keeps regenerating every time I open chrome! It keeps founding over and over again those 6 threats. After long time of using my pc if I run a scan it shall find around of 20 threats. I've deleted all my cookies and history and settings and extensions from chrome but nothing helps, got the BitDefender antivirus but that one doesnt even detects the 6 threats malwarebytes founds. Can you please help me get rid of the MALWARE?

  21. as asked by @gatortail to I have to open up a new topic for an Malwarebytes Browser Guard problems . Firefox user here not a Google chrome . anyway the Issue that I still seeing it is the both options of " I want to continue to the site and do not block this site" none of them works even though I click so many time on both options . well . Malwarebytes Browser Guard most of time not allowed to users to bypassing to the downloads from the developers websites to garbing the wanted software and thus even if you’ve already put a check mark on the "do not block this site" or even to click on "I want to continue to the site" to the allow list ’ but that is still not work here this issue is not specified for all downloads for some but it is for a lot of them around the developers website/official downloads links step to reproduce the issue : look for any well-known and official developer website download any of their software and see if Malwarebytes BG is blocking any of their downloads . if there any blocks by MBG then go to next step if there anything is blocked by MBG then all you need is to downloading one of their exe and if you able to get the file to your download folder then you’re a lucky , if you weren’t able to get the file then MBG will continued to blocking it and you will not be able to grab the file even if you already put a check mark because a new tabs in the web-browser will be opened as a continuation warnings by Malwarebytes browser Gurad hope this will be of any help :.
  22. Hi, So Malwarebytes won't open. I'm worried that it got corrupted or something. I tried reinstalling, it just stopped midway so I had to force close. So then I installed the Malwarebytes Support Tool, and I did a LOG check. I hope there aren't any problems. I just want to open Malwarebytes to see if my computer is fine. I'm scared. mbst-grab-results.zip
  23. a software called a check disk gui is being blocked already by Malwarebytes Browser Guard version2.2.4 . the software last update is on 2014 so it possible to be a false positive .
  24. 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
  25. 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
