  1. I have been experiencing two (& maybe 3) potentially related problems: 1) Beginning around Nov. 8, Malwarebytes (Premium 3.3.1) has been identifying PUP.Optional.Spigot during its daily scan. When I click "quarantine," Google Chrome abruptly shuts down. I restart Chrome, and then Malwarebytes finds Spigot again on its next scan. I did check my Google Chrome extensions, and nothing suspicious shows up there. 2) On Nov. 20, Malwarebytes repeatedly blocked a malicious website, outbound. As the attached logs document, all but one was from File: C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe; the other, from File: C:\Windows\System32\spoolsv.exe. 3) This may or may not be related, but -- on Nov. 21, a fraudulent charge was made to one of my credit cards, which I had used to make an online reservation on Nov. 15. It's quite a coincidence if it's unrelated, in that the charge was made less than 24 hours after the malicious website "attack." So -- help! I am very cautious online, have Malwarebytes running every day, have Norton Internet Security doing daily scans . . . yet obviously our computer has been infected &/or there is a malicious DNS server. We do have a wifi network - not sure whether KRACK could have played a role?? In any case, I am wondering how to deal with this problem -- specifically, whether it is something I should be able to deal with myself (with instructions from someone much more tech-savvy than I :-) )? Or?? Thanks in advance for any guidance. Malwarebytes logs 11 22 17.docx
