  1. Hi everyone this is my first post! Happy to have found this forum. I'm just starting to learn about malware removal. My main question is should I join AlienVault Open Threat Exchange? I'd like to be able to more easily identify threats that are found on my devices and network. The website is https://otx.alienvault.com . I'd also like to learn how to identify who an IP address belongs to and if it is safe. Below are details related to the malware on my iMac (Mojave 10.14.6. If anyone cares to delve in and comment on any of it, that would be fantastic. Thank you in advance. My Safa
  2. Lately i'm getting messages from my Norton antivirus saying that it blocked an attack from "log4.clouduetrika.com" These are the advanced details System Infected: Miner.BitcoinMiner Activity 9 "log4.clouduetricka.com (, 453)","TCP, Poort 453" The attack resulted from: \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME2\WINDOWS\SYSWOW64\CS-CZ\S-1-5-31\TIWORKER.EXE.
  3. I have recently acquired a popup ad virus on my iMac (macOS High Sierra 10.13.6). This virus sends my multiple popup ads through out the day telling me my Nortons or McAfee has expired, My Mac has a virus sent from a mock apple website page and virus protection ads. Each popup includes costsimpleplay.com on the notification. I have blocked this site from notifications and popups with no success. When I run my Malwarebytes it tells my my computer is clean. I have found one site about this virus, however it only explains how to rid it on a PC. Please help!
  4. Hi, First of all, I'm sorry my Norton is in Dutch. Next, I'm sorry if my English isn't all up there. I'll do my best :) Yesterday I noticed that Norton gave me lots of warnings about an attack. (System infected: Miner.bitcoinminer activity 7). The interval between the warnings is around 6 seconds. I really need a solution. I have way too much important files about my internship and school on my laptop; which leads me to the next question: If I follow the help, will that make me lose any files? I'll put a screen of the Norton warning in this thread. Thank
  5. Hi, I have Norton Security installed and running on my computer. Can I have Malwarebytes simultaneously runing on the same PC? Do you consider that this is a good idea? Because I am not an expert on cybersecurity, I would like to know your oppinion. Do both programs working together cover more harmfull cases than only one?' Maybe it is a bad idea? or Maybe not? Thank you very much in advance!😉
  6. So I’ve read other forums on this website on how to remove the “Miner.Bitcoinminer Activity 7” that norton keeps popping up, I’ve read other forums and followed what they did but I’m not sure if I did it right, it would be helpful if i could get help from a professional or similar, on the side note I have windows.
  7. Just an FYI that an update to MB Premium v3.2.2.2018 (CU 1.0.188) did not fix the issue described in my previous thread MB / Norton Exploit Protection Conflict with 32-bit Firefox Browser? where my Norton Security Automatic LiveUpdates (ALUs) fail if MB's Web Protection module is enabled. I performed an over-the-top update from v3.1.2 to v.3.2.2 on 27-Aug-2017 using the latest installer from https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3 (note that the Settings | Application | Application Update | Install Application Updates button reported that "No updates are available"). I ran MB v3.2.2
  8. My other machine is blocked from the Internet as reported by Chrome and IE. Malwarebytes is blocking outbound every few seconds, referring to dropbox,norton wifi privacy, chrome, etc. I ran both Norton and Malwarebytes without a cable or wireless enabled. Neither found any issue. I'm typing this from another machine using the same network with no issue. Two other machines have accessed the network, also with no issues. I need some assistance to get the faulty machine back online. Thanks. Joel
  9. I have been using Norton Utilities and Malwarebytes Premium for several years with no problems. Recently I get a message from Malwarebytes Premium that my Real-Time Protection is turned off. When turn it on, it automatically switches off. I believe this is a lack of compatibility with Norton Utilities. Does anyone have an idea of how to resolve? Thanks, Pam
  10. Does anyone know of a possible conflict with the exploit protection modules of MB v3.1.2 and Norton v22.x on 32-bit operating systems? I recently upgraded from MBAM Premium v2.2.1 to MB Premium v3.1.2 on a 32-bit Vista SP2 laptop. Since the upgrade my Firefox ESR browser has been very slow and occasionally crashes on exit due to shutdown hangs. The Modules tab of the Mozilla crash reports always flag Malwarebytes' mbae.dll, Norton's IPSEng32.dll (Intrusion Prevention System script engine, which includes exploit protection) and NVIDIA's nvwgf2um.dll (D3D10 driver). Here are few recent c
  11. I recently upgraded from MBAM Premium v2.2.1 to MB Premium v3.1.2 on a 32-bit Vista SP2 computer. I have Norton Security v22.9.4.8 installed and my Windows Security Center now shows both NS and MB as installed virus protection programs. Would it be prudent for me to change Settings | Application | Windows Security Center to Never register Malwarebytes in the Windows Security Center and leave NS as my only registered antivirus? The status indicator for Windows Security Center in my system tray doesn't display a red shield with an "X" through it (at least when I test with my autom
  12. Just within the last 2 days, I have had several clients install MalwareBytes via after mbam clean or existing upgrade. In three specific cases, the Windows 7 SP1 McAfee Security Suite 15.x from AT&T system immediately became slow and unusable. Another Windows 7 Pro SP1 client running current Thunderbird 45.7.0 lost all email folders and accounts when opened. Yet another client running Norton Business Suite on Windows 8.1 Pro also was unuseable from slowness. Shutting down MalwareBytes resolved the problem on all systems. In all cases, reverting back to Malwa
  13. I am using Malwarebytes 3.0 Premium and Norton Security Both software are running with standard real-time features, in addition to the fact that Malwarebytes has been manually set by me to scan for rootkits. Why scanning for rootkits is not enabled by default, I don't know. Anyways, which files and folders in Malwarebytes and Norton Security should I set for exclusion? I want to set the Norton Security program to be excluded from Malwarebytes scans and the Malwarebytes program to be excluded from all Norton Security scans. So far, the only Norton folder s
  14. Hello there! So recently, about 3 days ago I installed a program. The program came with a suspicious "bundle" that just installed a bunch of crap onto my desktop. I knew this was not right so I deleted all the programs that came with the bundle immediately. So now for three days i've been getting pop-up ads, it is not like the usual one click ,one pop-up though. My problem is kinda similar in one way. The thing is that a new tab with advertisement (most of the time "hotchatdate.com" and "wonderlands.com") opens every 20-25 minutes . It only occurs in google chrome , I haven't tried installing
  15. hi, I downloaded malwarebytes anti-malware at the official site it.malwarebytes.com and norton security says me it's a virus. it's possible ? thanks
  16. I use Norton Internet Security (NIS) v. as my antivirus and have encountered a problem where my background NIS Pulse Updates, which should complete in 1 - 2 seconds, will fail to terminate and will run continually (i.e., until re-boot) if MBAM Premium's Malicious Website Protection is enabled. Here are sample screenshots: Norton Pulse Update Runs With MBAM Malicious Website Protection Disabled: Norton Pulse Update Fails With MBAM Malicious Website Protection Enabled: I first noticed this problem in MBAM Premium v. 2.0.3. I followed the MBAM clean removal process here to perfor
  17. Hi, Everything was working fine until aboutan hour ago or so. Now, MBAE seems to have stopped sheilding Firefox (I'm not getting the little pop-up notoofcation, like I am still for other prgrams). The only new thing is that I just recently updated my Norton Security to Thank you
  18. I have just recently brought a new replacement laptop running Windows 10 / 64 bit and subscribed to Norton 360. I then installed the free trial Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I now get the prompt that the trial is about to expire. I am considering upgrading to the Pro version, but it appears you need to pay for a yearly subscription. I thought there was a lifetime subscription? I also need to know if there is any issue with my Windows 10 and Norton 360 that I need to know about before I upgrade. I use MailWasher, MS Outlook with Office suite, Chrome and Firefox browser. Thanks in advance
  19. Hi! Please can tell me what message "Adware.Aureate" in Norton Security is. Every day I get this warn message in Norton. Is ist dangerous or a security problem? What can I do to resolve this problem? Please see attachments. Sorry for bad english, my better language is german. Thanks in advance
  20. Greetings! I'm a bit confused and I thank you in advance for your feedback. I'm running Win10 Pro and have had Norton Internet Security for several years. I recently installed Anti-Malware and Anti-Exploit (both Home Premium). With the introduction of these extra security layers, my browser(s) have slowed significantly which I intuitively don't find surprising. However, I'd like to properly configure and better optimize my setup, if possible. First, my read of the online data says the followwing: Anti-exploit should have no impact on Norton and should be run concurrently. Anti-malware do
  21. Well here I'm not completely sure what's going on but it's potentially very serious. Apparently Norton keeps showing up a window alerting me that a Bloodhound type exploit has been detected in my browser under one of my profiles (firefox) on my old computer that I require for work (it has my modeling program). I obviously cannot just delete that profile considering the immense data I need. In any case, Norton alerts me that is has been cleaned but then it started showing up a second and then a third time saying it was cleansed (but it obviously was not). At this point I became worried and look
  22. Lately I've been getting intrusion attempt alerts from Norton (3 in the past 2 weeks). Previously I never had any but these are strange, the acting path looks suspicious, I believe I may have an infection. Details are as follows: Category: Intrusion PreventionDate & Time,Risk,Activity,Status,Recommended Action,IPS Alert Name,Default Action,Action Taken,Attacking Computer,Attacker URL,Destination Address,Source Address,Traffic Description8/6/2014 1:08:34 AM,High,An intrusion attempt by was blocked.,Blocked,No Action Required,Web Attack: Malicious File Download 12,No Action Requ
  23. Starting about 2-3 weeks ago, my PC began to lag alot more when it came to the internet and other applications, I began losing connection alot more, and, me, being suspicious of it, decided to run scans (I run them daily). Full, Quick, Cusom, on things like Avast, MBAM, SUPERantispyware, etc, all came up with nothing except tracking cookies. A few hours ago, my computer randomly BSOD'd. Its 4 years old, Windows 7, I believe 64 bit, and an ACER. I'd like help to see if I'm actually infected or not, and, if I am, how to clean my computer. All help is welcome!
  24. Can I replace my Norton antivirus with Malwarebytes? Or, Does Malwarebytes detect and prevent all known virus and malware threats? I recently purchased Malwarbytes and am wondering if I need to keep my Norton? Rayzor
  25. Hello. I have a samsung galaxy note 2, running on a android 4.3( jelly bean, I think). My model number is SGH-I317M if it helps. Anyways, my problem is that MBAM mobile found 3 norton apps i deleted(one was norton spot, the others i can't remember). Also, when I looked in settings, the processes of those apps where there. Thanks for looking at this post.
