Hey Malwarebytes team/forum. Recently I've been receiving notifications from Malwarebytes saying that it has blocked an inbound connection. Great! that means it's doing it's job. Or at least until yesterday when i took an extra moment to see what exactly it was blocking. Upon inspection of the notifications i saw several from the steam gaming platform, and one from Nvidia container. yesterday i tried looking into this blocked connection that was using Nvidia and tried posting to the forum only to be blocked by the forum's spam filter, oh well. so i took it into my own hands and uninstalled Geforce Experience and manually removed the folder containing the Nvidia container inside the Nvidia corporation folder just to be safe since i don't use the features provided by Geforce Experience aside from the FPS overlay, then called it a day. That is until just now when i got another block this time in regards to another inbound connection this time using the program Spotify. now i'm familiar with both steam, nvidia, and spotify as one is my game client, one is my graphics card, and another is my music program. What concerns me is that the inbound connections are not associated with any site or host-name, only IP address. so i googled the IP address and a few results came back with china (minus one from a data center in Canada). each notification lists the program behind these inbound connections and the files location, all back to the actual programs .exe's. Bummer i was hoping for an easy uninstall of some fake programs. so after some digging i found that this time (the block using Spotify) the file location was located inside "WindowsApp" folder (which is permission blocked by "trustedInstaller" a default outdated windows process[from my understanding]). This concerns me even more and i really don't want to try gaining access only to accidentally break something. So now convinced that i in fact do have a Trojan and it is attempting to receive network communication via legitimate applications i have come to this forum in search of more professional help. Once the malwarebytes scan is finished i will attach the result of the malwarebytes scan, the Adware cleaner scan, the Frst.txt / Addition.txt, and the Notifications (in .txt) from malwarebytes. Then i wil submit this post and hope that the weirdness yesterday with the forums spam filter is done.
