  1. What is FF Helper Protection? The Malwarebytes research team has determined that FF Helper Protection is a potentially unwanted Firefox extension. How do I know if my computer is affected by FF Helper Protection? You may see these warnings during install: The extension closes about:addons so the user can not remove the extension manually. But if you would restart Firefox in Safe Mode, you would see this entry in your list of installed Firefox extensions: How did FF Helper Protection get on my computer? Forced extensions use a typical method for distributing themselves. This particular one was promoted as a Firefox update after an ad-rotator redirect. How do I remove FF Helper Protection? Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this unwanted program. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected. Restart your computer when prompted to do so. Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of FF Helper Protection? No, Malwarebytes removes FF Helper Protection completely. How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me? We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this potentially unwanted extension. We protect our customers from these extensions by blocking the sites that spread them: Technical details for experts Possible signs in FRST logs: FF Extension: No Name - C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{profile}.default\Extensions\{eb3ebb14-6ced-4f60-9800-85c3de3680a4}.xpi [2018-01-04] Alterations made by the installer: File system details [View: All details] (Selection) --------------------------------------------------- Adds the folder C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{profile}.default\browser-extension-data\{eb3ebb14-6ced-4f60-9800-85c3de3680a4} Adds the file storage.js"="1/4/2018 9:20 AM, 60 bytes, A In the existing folder C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{profile}.default\extensions Adds the file {eb3ebb14-6ced-4f60-9800-85c3de3680a4}.xpi"="1/4/2018 9:20 AM, 9512 bytes, A Malwarebytes log: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Scan Date: 1/4/18 Scan Time: 12:03 PM Log File: ecc0889c-f13e-11e7-96e4-080027750297.json Administrator: Yes -Software Information- Version: 3.3.1.2183 Components Version: 1.0.262 Update Package Version: 1.0.3620 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: {computername}\{username} -Scan Summary- Scan Type: Threat Scan Result: Completed Objects Scanned: 245816 Threats Detected: 1 Threats Quarantined: 1 Time Elapsed: 1 min, 30 sec -Scan Options- Memory: Enabled Startup: Enabled Filesystem: Enabled Archives: Enabled Rootkits: Disabled Heuristics: Enabled PUP: Detect PUM: Detect -Scan Details- Process: 0 (No malicious items detected) Module: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Key: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Value: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Data: 0 (No malicious items detected) Data Stream: 0 (No malicious items detected) Folder: 0 (No malicious items detected) File: 1 PUP.Optional.FFHelperProtection, C:\USERS\{username}\APPDATA\ROAMING\MOZILLA\FIREFOX\PROFILES\{profile}.default\EXTENSIONS\{EB3EBB14-6CED-4F60-9800-85C3DE3680A4}.XPI, Quarantined, [15181], [475422],1.0.3620 Physical Sector: 0 (No malicious items detected) (end) As mentioned before the full version of Malwarebytes could have protected your computer against this threat.
