  1. Hi there, Yesterday i went on this website: pentestmonkey .net/cheat-sheet/ssh-cheat-sheet (i broke the link to make sure no one click on it by accident), and without interacting in anyway with the site once there, MalwareByte notified me that it blocked the website because of a Trojan horse attack, by real-time protection. Curiously, or rather luckily, my MalwareByte Prenium trial ended like 30 minutes afterwise. I didn't expect this, but simply writting the link without breaking it on this post, obviously without going on the site or clicking on the link, led to 2 other consecutives warnings from MalwareByte about Site Blocked by real-time protection against a Trojan. I'm really surprised, i really didn't thought that simply pasting a link without clicking it could lead to an attack..? Also, i'm using Brave Browser to block every cookies, every javascript, trackers (standard before, just noticed there is now an aggressive mode which i just configured) and fingerprint (same as trackers, new aggressive mode i just configured) for every site until specified otherwise, so i wasn't expecting to be so easily vulnerable navigating websites without even clicking anything, and simply typing URLs... I just disactivated the "preload pages for faster browsing and searching option" though, do you think it might prevent such attacks from simply typing URLs without interacting with them? I will also block every sound and music by default in the future until specified otherwise, since it's the only content that i can think of that i've left unblocked by default by Brave, as recommended by them. Anyway, i'm worried because i actually copied the link to some Website Scanners yesterday after my prenium trial went down (all of which warned me it was potentially malicious / blacklisted), so if it is enough to infect my PC i might not have been properly protected by MalwareByte at this moment... I'd love it if i could provide my FRST logs to some expert which could ensure me my PCs isn't going to end up crypted in the coming days or else. To resume what i've did since then: i ran a complete MalwareByte scan, i downloaded and ran AdwCleaner, ran CCleaner classical scan as well as it's registry scan tool, manually cleared the cache and data's on the browser i used at this moment as well as my other browser, ran Window's file cleaning tools, ran a complete scan of my PC with Norton, and i ran Norton Power Eraser in rootkit mode. I also repeated the process with Admin permission and on an Admin account on my PC since the account i used at this moment was not. Everything seems fine regarding all those scans. I also downloaded and ran a FRST scan (i hate the fact that Farbar has no official website and that FRST must absolutely be downloaded by third-party websites, which i normally avoid at all time) and looked up the log quickly, but i'm not a malware removal expert and obviously i can't tell much from the logs that resulted (aside that Wondershare, which i've uninstalled, seems to still be in my PC). Does FRST details in any way if any result in the log is potentially malicious to their knowledge, or does it necessarily must be looked up by an expert to spot anything potentially malicious? If so, is there a specific way to provide such logs to experts on this forum in a secure, non-publicly accessible way? Those logs are super extensive, i don't know that much about cybersecurity but i wouldn't be surprised if it could be used maliciously if falling in the wrong hands. I hope that i'm worrying for nothing, and that an expert of yours will respond quickly to confirm or infirm it as soon as possible. I will provide the logs in the specified way as soon as i get an answer from such expert. Since then, i will repeat the process once more to be sure since i've received those two warnings writing this post.
  2. I just got on my laptop recently and while doing it's daily scan, Malwarebytes displayed a message that Realtime Protection is turned off? Any ideas why that might be?
  3. I keep getting a message that my real time protection is turned off. When I try to turn it on, it won't turn on.
