  1. Malwarebytes just forced me to purchase an upgrade for $60 . Even though there is 2 months left on my current subscription. Absolutely disgusting. The program popped up as the freeware and wouldn’t update until I clicked one of the upgrade choices.
  2. I'm not sure if I'm putting this the right place but anyway here I go. Yesterday I got a scam email from finacenews dot org I viewed it but I didn't open it/view the remote content (or click on any of the links) in Mozilla Thunderbird also TB was sandboxed so I shouldn't have to worry about an infection not mention I'm a Linux user viewing this email from a non-admin account. But I just wanted to report this phishing scam. Here a screenshot of it:
  3. I have a friend/client running Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer (all current and updated) that he uses IE to access his Comcast email. We leaves IE running to monitor his emails but after sitting idle anywhere from 1 hour to several hours the fake virus warning with audio comes on (so this happens without any movement or clicking by the user). The IE tab changes from the current site to flash yellow and now says Microsoft Support (but obviously it is not). The only way at this point that IE can be closed is to use task manager. The user has a current trial version of the latest Malwarebytes program and has scanned the system several times, the first scan 2 weeks ago produced a few PUP/issues and cleaned them but the warning messages came back. Subsequent scans did not find any issues. This is the first time that I have seen this issue where Malwarebytes did not permanently resolve the issue and where the warning message pops up even when IE is sitting idle. Any suggestion how to fix this would be appreciated! My latest attempt was to reset IE - waiting on result. Possibly uninstalling/re-installing IE and/or installing Chrome?
  4. It would be helpful for Malwarebytes to introduce a new customer service like Norton Safe Web Lite or Scam Adviser, but better than them: So a customer can check websites before using them as to: 1. the review comments of prior users of a website, with dates; 2. the ownership of the website; 3. the location of the website and owners; and 4. the response of site owners to review comments.
  5. Hi, and please forgive my ignorance. I have scanned the subforums here but was unable to find one where this question seemed most appropriate. So please, feel free to move or delete this post as you deem appropriate. My question is not about the software. Although I do have the Android version installed on my mobile phone. I did, however, receive an email invitation to an interview that supposedly will be conducted by someone at Malwarebytes. This email was received into the email address where I had registered my mobile app when first downloading Malwarebytes. The email was sent from "welcome@reply.malwarebytes.com", I did reply by selecting a particular time on a particular date, and later received confirmation of my appointment from what appears to be a legitimate Malwarebytes corporate address shown (no brackets in the actual email address) as (first initial)(last name)@malwarebytes.com. Aside from initially stating it would take 45 minutes and later confirming by sending me a calendar entry that is set for 30 minutes, nothing was mentioned as far as the scope of the interview or the type of questions I would be asked but it did offer a $50 Amazon Gift card for participating. (And who would refuse that for a 30-minute phone chat, right)? I am simply trying to be proactive in verifying the source of these emails and the legitimacy of any such "user interview" program that you might be aware of. If you have any information that you can provide or if you can direct me to who/where I might be able to confirm/refute this, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance... Cordially, OmarS
  6. This same thing is happening to me so if you have a way to fix it then please let me know!! It is very annoying!
