  1. Hey Everyone, I recently came across "Malwarebytes Privacy" which offers a secure VPN connection with no logging which is great!! Also, I read that it changes the public/private keys periodically for increased security on the internet. I wanted to know how often do these keys change? Is it for every session or is there a fixed time period, like a week or a month? Thanks!!

  3. Hi I have the same problem with my desktop computer. All my files were changed to .PPTX. I need someone willing to help please. All the encrypted file are too important. I can't just delete them. Here's the same note they left. Your files are Encrypted! For data recovery needs decryptor. How to buy decryptor: 1.

  4. Please help me. I have this problem too, all my files changed to .pptx. Here to find the alternatives. Thanks.
  5. Hello, Im new to this forum and I would be extremely grateful if anyone here could give me some advice on how to remove encrypted syswow64, (possibly zero access rootkit), from several usbs that I got that have been infected when they where inserted in windows computers that I got that were attacked by hackers. The hackers installed a system administration server on my network and attacked my computers with some kind of synzcronization worm/virus that synced and even infected offline devices, (that contained Bluetooth and smartcard etc), like Television, digital TV box, dvd, printer and p
  6. hi, I just downloaded and scanned your andorid application. there was no problem. but I inadvertently activated the device encryption feature on the security suggestion screen. the phone has restarted and I think it's encrypting all my files right now. Does the operation cause problems when cutting in half?
  7. When I activate safe browsing scanner, I'm directed to enable accessibility for Malwarebytes. Once done, I receive a screen that says the following: So with that: 1. Do I need to make a choice between having an encrypted phone OR using safe browsing? (maybe I'm missing something) 2. If it is the case that I must choose between the two, is Malwarebytes covering me in the same way that my phone's encryption does? 3. Is there a way to circumvent this? (I'm not rooted) 4. Or, will my phone still be encrypted, not using the screen lock for enhancement, in which
  8. Last time I encrypted my hard drive I learned Malwarebytes wasn’t compatible and therefore could not scan for root kits. Is there an encryption program that is compatible with Malwarebytes and will allow for full scanning? Thanks so much for any help you can provide.
  9. I use MBAM Premium on all my computer and Android phone. I have this suggestion that I think would be well received by anyone interested in online security... expand MBAM to include best of class anti-keylogging, anti-screenshot, anti-clipboard, anti-mic, anti-cam... make it a complete full featured anti-spy tool. I'm looking into Zemana Antilogger, HitManPro.Alert, SpyShelter, GuardedID for those very features. Those are foreign based companies, I'd prefer buying from a trusted US based company though. If Malwarebytyes were to expand in this direction, I feel certain it'd be a huge hit, and v
  10. I have a pretty big problem, some of my files are encrypted by something calling itself Coin Locker Malware. I've searched all over the internet, and I can't find any forum or threat with this particular malware. Some of my files are encrypted, and thus unable to be used. For example Microsoft Office is encrypted (Word, PowerPoint, Excel...). Also on EVERY page in my computer is this txt. file, which I've attached to this post. Off course I'm not going to comply, because I believe it will do even more harm. Anybody encountered this problem and managed to remove it? Or has anybody got an
  11. Hi, I think I just got the CryptoWall 3.0 virus on March 15. I really would like to know if there is anyone that could help me save my files and get the other ones back?
  12. I recently made a post on here that was ruined by an unauthorized user posting an answer. However, being as that post does not include new information I just found out, it is no longer needed. On January 26th, my computer started running very slowly. After that, it started freezing after only being up for roughly 5 minutes, so I system restored back to an earlier date. However, upon it booting from the system restore, it told me it was unsuccessful, so I tried another restore. This one had the same result, however it made the computer actually work. It wasn't until I clicked to go to my manusc
  13. I have a Lenovo T410 laptop, running Windows 7 Professional (Svc.Pack 1), 64-bit and has been hacked with some kind of encryption virus and most of the files are encrypted with '.crypted' extension. Could anyone please suggest what needs to be done to remove the virus. This attack happened after a couple of days of the "dllhost" virus attack, and when my computer's wi-fi was left on for a couple of hours (dllhost was active and attracting more viruses when I my internet connection was on). #1) I have taken outside help to remove the "dllhost" virus but unfortunately they were not able to
  14. recently I was "hit" with cryptolock. I clicked on nothing once the screen showed up (I believe this one was done using a "drive-by download " type attack while reading a .pdf frow a website) & then turned off the machine. I rebooted with a scanning CD, cleaned up, entered safe mode, maually cleanned, & booted normally. Problem solved. I had access to everything. A week of two later (sorry, time is vague due to being very busy) I went to read a recipe & .docs, .pdf, & .rtf all like the same sent. A breif personal history-I an 60, have owned a sucessful PC repair biz for 14 year
