  1. What does Malwarebytes for Mac do, if anything, to protect against phishing? As we all know, that is the main threat vector and I want to put something on my mother's Macbook to protect her against some of the more clever phishing attempts as she is not very technically inclined. I didn't see anything on the product page that specifically referenced phishing protection...

  3. Hi, I had recently some encounter with proxy hijacker malware.May have been some Hijack.AutoProxy MalwareBytes was able to successfully restore the internet connection but the the hijack also locked my proxy settings, so I was not able to change them. So I removed it again.... After 4 years of no software (not even defender) only one malware. I would say it is quite good results for me. Of course for people who don't know as much things, I suggest to have something installed that has realtime protection. The message at that screen was something like: "Some settings are managed by your system adminstrator" Well computer being personal computer, not using in any domain or connected to any work or school accounts, then it was odd. I left it alone. Didn't care much of the proxy configurations back then. Today one of my friend had the same issue. Proxy changed to <-loopback>, http localhost:8000, https localhost:8080 and also settings having same lockdown. Same case, computer used only personally. Since I wasn't able to download malwarebytes due to no access to interent, was fixing things by memory. Was able to fix proxy settings manually by deleting some of the registry keys for "Users/software/windows/currentversion/Internet Settings", same for machine and also checked the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet settings". Also removed suspicious scheduler job. Remembered those locations from time I had malwarebytes installed on my computer and it halfway removed it. Everything seemed ok, but still no access to configuration, but at least access to interent. Installed her mb, scanned and scan showed up nothing. (probably because I removed all the keys it had created manually) Since I have also Windows 10 Professional installed, I checked policy manager. All of the parameters there were "Not configured" both, (copmuter and user configuratsion) so the locking wasn't coming from there. After some digging around in registry found one key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel Over there the ConnectionSettings or something like that. After removing it the proxy config was accessible again under "Internet Options" -> Connection tab I can't remember exact name because I removed it and hoped it works. Same key existed in her computer, removing it gave back the access to the connection settings. My conclusion is, that if someone has the same kind of connections settings locking, then to check also that key. Maybe it ends up in the check at some point and can be fixed automatically. (Of course it might be intentional key on domain machines, so it can be hard to know if it is correct or not) Hopefully it helps someone who has same issue. Operating with regedit be cautious, suggested to make backup of the key you are about to modify or delete. If you don't know what you are doing, you can mess up a lot there.
  4. Hi, for a few weeks now i have been having problems connecting to the internet. The error message referred me to proxy settings were I found out that my pc was always trying to connect via a proxy but when I disabled this and enabled the automatic option, upon leaving that window, my changes were not saved. First I got by by restoring my system, but after a recent windows update all my restore points were useless (my pc was restored to the issue still present). I tried other options like eliminating the proxy files from the registry, and others advised by Microsoft Help. But nothing worked. Luckyly I stumbled upon this forum were I saw that others had the same issue, but they had different solutions, so I will be grateful if you can help me as well. Please find attached my FRST and Addition Thanks in advanced! Addition.txt FRST.txt
  5. Hi, Can anyone help please? I have a proxy hijacker that keeps turning my proxy settings on. There are 7 files identified by malwarebytes, which I quarantined then deleted. I've also run Adwcleaner as instructed in previous topics on this. Would it help if I just left the files in quarantine on malwarebytes instead of deleting them? I've noticed on other forums that people have run a program called farbar recovery scan, then people have created a fix for them. Is anyone willing to do this for me? Am getting desperate, my laptop is unusable currently. Thanks! UPDATE: Adwcleaner claims there are no malicious files
