  1. Hiyah! I recently decided to add lines to my hosts file in order to block ads due to the fact i cant block ads via steam web browser... My question is if it's safe to do so? Everyone mentioned this guys github and his hosts files: https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts Now, i added Unified hosts = (adware + malware) one... Should i worry about anything? I basically copy pasted everything what's inside it... Thanks in advance!
  2. What is Oneway? The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Oneway is a hosts file hijacker and part of an adware bundle. These adware applications display advertisements not originating from the sites you are browsing. How do I know if my computer is affected by Oneway? You may see these entries in your hosts file: How did Oneway get on my computer? Adware applications use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was bundled with other software. How do I remove Oneway? Our program Malwarebytes can detect and rem
  3. Hello, I believe my HOSTS file detection to be a false positive, Virus total scans clean no other detections. My HOSTS file was downloaded from http://hosts-file.net/download/hosts.zip Would you please be kind enough to check and report back. Thank you. Kind regards. MBAM_HOSTS.txt
  4. Hi, A few months back, I had an infected hosts file which would redirect selective websites. Malwarebytes did not detect it at that time. Will it now detect "dirty" hosts files or, if not, could it be added as a warning ? Thanks, mandacat
  5. I decided to give Roguekiller a try today and just finished scanning my machine. I keep very close tabs on system files and processes and have no cause for concern at the moment (no weird system behaviours), but decided to use Roguekiller to be sure there's no silent malware that i might've missed. I don't know enough to discern if the results shown in RK's scan are false positives or actual threats. If you'd care to have a look at the report i'd be very interested in knowing your expert opinion on which of these entries might be beneficial to delete. RogueKiller V8.6.2 [Jul 3 2013] by Ti
  6. In order to prevent ads from stealing my bandwidth i am adding to my hosts file lines like ads.pile-of-crap.com i copied file to other machines, and once noticed that file changed. i started making local copies and found out that two lines (out of about 100) constantly disappear from the file: ad.doubleclick.net www.google-analytics.com clearly this is an action of some malicious entity. Unfortunately both NOD32 which i have constantly running, and manual scan by my favorite Malwarebytes, don't show anything wrong with my system. Any ideas?
  7. Although MBAM does detect the files associated with the Trojan.Qhost.Gen and .BG (dplaysvr.exe & dplayx.dll), it does not appear to detect or warn that the hosts file has been changed. I'm not positive, but apparently it was changed by these Trojans. In my case , the host file redirected the browser to a site in Romania ? when either www.google.com or www.bing.com was browsed. Is it possible to warn users when the host file has lines in it without the # character ? Thanks, mandacat
