Hi I noticed that Malwarebytes breaks the Windows subsystem for Linux if I run "sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade". This is very annoying because I have to reinstall the whole WSL system every time this happens. dpkg is NOT malware, it is a package management tool in Ubuntu. Please see: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/man1/dpkg.1.html Please see the attachment.
Conventional wisdom suggests that Linux is immune from malware, hacks etc. but as it's popularity increases won't the gremlins start coming up with malicious code to attack it too? Is an anti virus utility even necessary for the Linux OS - and if so does MWB currently have or intends to develop a program for it? Currently running the ZORIN distro.
Hello, Yesterday my computer was infected with what I think is a malware virus of some form. I downloaded a new program and shortly afterwards my computer began to act up and suddenly it dawned on me that my computer was infected. I have a startup menu which allows me to select between using Linux or Windows 7. The computer infection occurred on my Windows 7 operating system so I switched to Linux where it is relatively functional and I am able to access it unlike Windows 7 where I have to revert to safe mode just to access the operating system and cripple the virus. I immediately went onto YouTube to get this issue resolved and learned about Malwarebytes and realized that it is a viable solution to my problem. I learned how to go into safe mode on Windows 7, I learned how to access the internet despite the infection, and I attempted to download Malwarebytes but unfortunately the virus is preventing me from accessing it even if I'm in safe mode on Windows 7 so I went to another computer and used my thumb drive on another computer to install the program and then transfer it to my computer but that did not work as expected. I cannot install Malwarebytes on LInux either. I browsed the internet for all of the information I was able to seek until I learned about Chameleon which is intended to be used if my computer is infected and is preventing my from installing and using Malwarebytes to resolve the infection. Unfortunately, after I saved the file and attempted to begin using Chameleon I clicked every button to launch the black DOS command prompt but it never launched despite several attempts to do so. I don't know what to do at this point to remove the malware virus from my computer and it is clear that I am ignorant of a proper solution. I know that I cannot resolve this infection on my own and I require the assistance of experts immediately to resolve this very serious issue. I cannot do this on my own so I am turning to all of you here for help in my hour of darkness and desperation. Please help me, I have no one else to turn to. - Flux FRST.txt Addition.txt
