  1. As many have found, when installing Malwarebytes on a Mac running High Sierra, I could not install system extensions that enable Real-Time Protection. I do understand it’s not a bug, it’s a feature on Apple’s part. After multiple searches here and elsewhere on the Interweb, no fixes worked for me. No matter how many times I tried to “Allow” in the Security System Preferences nothing would happen. Finally it dawned on me to try “allowing” in Safe Mode. Lo-and-behold, everything is loaded and I have Real-Time Protection switched on. So for the simple home user who is just trying to get a li
  2. Dear Forum members. I installed the Swagbucks extension into Chrome. It is a nuisance, and I'd like to get rid of it. I saw some tips on YouTube, which didn't help. Can't really find an answer using Google. So I'm turning to my trusted source of information ... this forum. I know you have all the answers ... right? KPP
  3. I have scanned PC with AdwCleaner and it finds two identical extensions or somethings maybe having to do with web browser? (Under: Value= Extension) then - Data: followed by a 33 letter gobble de gook -(starts like this: hhbgpoak... ) which also says something about secure preference. After it completes scan, it presents this info and I choose "remove". I go through restart, rescan and they are still there. I have Malwarebytes / 2016 11 22 9 also, which does not find this stuff? Probably just stuck with whatever it is. Any info would be appreciated. My other scans sometimes find
  4. Lenovo R-500 laptop 8GB 64-bit Windows 7 Pro SP1 Seamonkey 2.39 (x86) browser Anti-Ransomware I was updating my browser's extensions through the Add-On Manager when my browser was quarantined. Restoring function and excluding Seamonkey.exe in Anti-Ransomware was easy and uneventful so far. logs.zipMalwarebytes Anti-Ransomware.zipseamonkey.zip
  5. Hi Malwarebytes forums, im having a problem with my computer it seems to be infected by a nasty adware. Chrome keeps on repeatedly self installing ad extensions even after i remove them and run Malwarebytes Removal Tool. as instructed on the pinned post, i ran FRST and here are the logs. FRST log here is the Addition Log Addition.txt FRST.txt
  6. Hi, Recently my younger brother decided to learn how to download movies off the internet and tried direct downloading off a bunch of dodgy websites. Unfortunately, now he's managed to get a couple of ad extensions stuck in my Google Chrome. I've uninstalled the programs from my computer and have removed them from my Google Chrome list of extensions but whenever I restart my computer, the extensions reappear. I've tried scanning with Malwarebytes but despite scanning and finding no problems, the extensions still continue to be reinstalled. I'm quite concerned of any security issues I may hav
  7. OK, The above tags are some of the folders contained within the bogus User folders, which all lead to a group of identical files that I suspect to be malicious. Anyways, Initially I had started searching for a way to remove some adware that continually reinstalls itself after removing it from Chrome extensions. Later discovered that in IE11, the same extensions were greyed out and unable to be disabled, much less deleted. found the file location and tried to remove them this way, but seems they're still lurking somewhere. whilst hunting for these I came across these suss user folders and their
  8. Today, from out of the blue, my Chrome web browser notified me that: "Chrome detected that your browser settings may have been changed without your knowledge. Would you like to reset them to their original defaults?".... what just happened? I did some searching around, and found this news article, published within the last 8 hours. After reading suggestions by Google that I may have acquired malware of a sort, I decided to do a scan with Malwarebytes Pro in safemode. It found "hijack.drives" (attached), which it then prompted to quarantine. How the heck did this get on my system, and is it s
  9. So there has been some discussion over at Reddit about malware groups approaching extension designers to either affiliate or sell these extensions to them, netting a laundry list of existing users. Said groups then modify the extensions. Users have reported all manner of nonsense, from link poisoning and ad injection to botnetting. Has anyone here heard about or been looking into this? I did some quick searching and didn't come up with anything similar. Relevant discussions: http://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/1vir7a/chrome_extensions_are_being_bought_out_by_malware/ http://
