  1. Greetings, I received a shorted google link via Skype like this: goo.gl/letters#manyletters&numbers?id=MYSKYPEID (MYSKYPEID was my actual skype ID) and I unfortunately clicked on it which opened a website. It looked like advertisement so I closed it and didn't think much about it. 2 hours later I wanted to skype someone and noticed my skype application isn't open so I went to my desktop to use the .exe shortcut but it had no icon and clicking it said something along the lines of the location of the exe(or oath) not being found. I searched on Cortana und didn't find my usual skype appl
  2. I recently installed Malwarebytes after some suspicions due to slow computer running speed in order to run a scan (which turned up 2 entries), and activated a trial for the enhanced protection services. A few days later, I began to receive repeated notifications that a malicious website was blocked, trying to access Skype and svchost. I promptly closed Skype and disconnected my computer from the internet for a bit as I deleted my stored passwords and cache and ran a scan, which turned up nothing. As of reconnecting my computer to the internet after closing Skype, I have not received any more n
  3. I was playing a game chatting with friends (i was playing fullscreen borderless) when suddenly Malwarebytes poped up and said it protected my pc (or something along those lines) Here's the log: Detection, 03/09/2016 00:00, SYSTEM, *pcname*, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, IP,, 8780, Inbound, C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe, Detection, 03/09/2016 00:00, SYSTEM, *pcname*, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, IP,, 8780, Inbound, C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe, Detection, 03/09/2016 02:46, SYSTEM, *pcname*, Prote
  4. While watching a YouTube video, I noticed Malwarebytes starting to go insane with notifications blocking both inbound and outbound connections from the IP to Skype. I never have any ads in Skype and while Malwarebytes does randomly block IP's inbound to skype at times, its never been anything like this before. A quick google search of this IP address reveals that it is listed in the StopForumSpam database as well as project honeypot who states it is used in dictionary attacks (see attached image). I have attached the Malwarebytes protection log, should I be concerned about t
  5. As long as my computer is running Skype, I get a popup from Malwarebytes telling me that it's blocked a website and the process in action is ALWAYS Skype. I don't have to be in a Skype call at the time, just as long as Skype is open and running on my PC, the popups will happen. Using the Malwarebytes premium service, I have completed a various number of scans which have all finished with no detections. I am wondering if anybody knows why this is happening and if anyone can assist me. For professional reasons, I rely on Skype daily and I don't want to lose anymore trust in the servic

  10. Hey, I don't recall the entire warning message I got from MalwareBytes' pop-up message on my desktop, but I got a warning that Skype was trying to make a call to IP (Quatar I think the IP lookup said). I have read some on this and other forums, and people mentions uninstalling any torrent programs. I have removed all these, and MalwareBytes doesn't seem to find anything causing this. I wouldn't delete Skype, I got friends who only has Skype, and I can't afford to lose contact with them.
  11. Okay so I have a brand new computer with Malwarebytes Premium and Norton 360 installed on it. I also have Skype. This is an error message which I keep getting, any one any ideas? Could it be an IP thing? Any help is appreciated. http://gyazo.com/bb15596dc1ba4a17e4d6798d1d85947f Kieran
  12. Malware Bytes has been blocking a lot more than usual. First it kept blocking an IP address. Then every time I clicked iTunes it would block a trojan. It blocked something from Skype. I recently removed Pure Leads. And my computer is still slower than normal. Downloaded the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and attached the logs since it won't let me enter it in this post as its too long.

  13. Hi, I'm new to MB and have been using it for maybe a month? So, my concern is that for some reason there's this Skype IP that keeps getting blocked. I usually see different ones from time to time but today there was this one in particular that keeps getting blocked continuously every second. I logged out of my skype (with the skype sign in page is still on) and they seemed to have stopped, I then logged back on. After a couple minutes of peace, the same exact IP is blocked again and when I checked the log, it's been blocked 6 times for the first time before I logged out and then another 6 time

  17. Hi guys, I have encountered some issues with probable malware after I encountered a random pop up at a website titled "rwindowsdefender.nl". The site appears to be associated with the malware that is being served up in Skype's ads. Here are my DDS log files: DDS (Ver_2012-11-20.01) - NTFS_AMD64 Internet Explorer: 8.0.7600.17267 BrowserJavaVersion: 10.51.2 Run by Administrator at 17:44:15 on 2014-02-05 Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 6.1.7600.0.1252.1.1033.18.7854.5424 [GMT -6:00] .

  19. Hi, I'm not too sure if I'm posting in the right place but Skype does not work at all when I try and sign in. I used MBAM to clean up my computer, but after when I tried to use Skype within the next day it keeps signing in forever or if it does sign in it keeps refreshing the messages forever, so I cannot receive or send messages or calls. It's been like this for days now.
  20. So heres what happened. Someone on my skype friends list sent me a link and a message saying "When was the last time you saw this picture? [Link] :D" So when I asked him what it was since hes an idiot and doesn't realize that its a pretty big deal he told me to click it and download it. So (I know its mostly my fault) I clicked it like an idiot that I am because I didnt realize that this kind of stuff happened on skype. So basically I asked my other friend who's really good with computer and he said it was a botnet (I dont really know much about this stuff). And he told me to download Malw
  21. Hi, A couple of months back i was befriended by a stranger on Skype. McAfee Antivirus software was running on my Windows 7 pc. While chatting with this person my Antivirus software alerted me that my pc was being probed through various ports. I immediately closed all contact with this person, but the damage had already been done. Various ports on my pc get probed from all over the net on a daily basis. +50/daily Recently i installed Malwarebytes and scanned all my files. It found PUP:Datamangr in the registry and i promptly removed the registry entry and rebooted the pc. i thought i had fin
