  1. What happened is exactly as the title says. I just received an email that my account password was changed, and not only had the password been changed, but the email it was tied to was as well. I have, of course, already sent in a ticket, but as I really can't wait for this to go through, especially as it can take 2-3 BUSINESS DAYS, which would now be 4-5 days, I'm hoping that I can pull some attention here in order to expedite the process. This is beyond frustrating to me at the moment. Though, I do admit I can appreciate the irony behind it, the service I use to prevent people from infecting my computer with viruses and stealing my passwords, having my password stolen. But, still, this is just awful. If anyone here can either help me get the attention of an admin, or give me some solid advice, it would be appreciated.
  2. When I get to the point where I'm prompted to go into security and "Allow" the extension to load, clicking has no effect on two of my Macs. Both problem machines are Minis running High Sierra. I was able to allow the load on a MacBook Pro and a Mac Pro. Any ideas?
  3. Does Malwarebytes offer an internet security program? If not which do you recommend?
  4. Hello, Im new at this forum so thx for future help and sorry for my english. 2 days ago I experienced strange things on PC, sudden data oppening, random program starting, in game crashed, net speed slow down, CD rom opening, PC shut down even if my antivirus was on (Eset smart security). Didnt download anything, only problem that I though it was was CCleaner. So I fast checked procceses and there was strange apps starting all over again. Scanned comp, nothing, downloaded malwarebytes / Rkill / Roguekiller / Combofix and only Combofix found something but once deleted they are back up after reboot. So I just took my Win7 installation disc and Re installed windows / formated HD cause I was hoping it will fix problem but nothing. Even on start of windows PC was writing and picking options. I somehow managed to get on startup, download antivirus and again nothing. Reinstalled 3 times and again same thing. Some strange $Recycle.bin spawn in 2 partitions. Dllhost.exe is active in task manager so I dont know if there's any connection. Also I noticed that in every program or file in Properties/Security there is TrustedInstaller with all privileges. Plz help, lost all my data.
  5. Someone recently who works in the computer industry as a programmer told me that antiviruses aren't really needed and he thought they were a waste of space for users who know what they're doing. He added that all they do is take processing power and that if a virus is going to infect you it will do so without the AV doing anything. I just want to raise this point because I am considering removing my Avast subscription and if it actually would be ok to do so. Before launching any suspicious files I test them in various online/local sandboxes to ensure they do not infect my system since I bank on it aswell as game. I know what I am doing and have spotted infected files before such as ransomware and RATs which prevented me having an infection, etc. And sure, online sandboxes are not reliable due to detection however this is the same for an antivirus. Realtime protection is meant to prevent the execution of malicious files based on their signature. Now, if a black hat is to write a good trojan, that trojan is 100% to be encrypted meaning it will fly through the detection and launch. It might be scanned by others thus distributed to the companies for signature analysis which would note the signature and add it to the database but that would be after a certain amount of time. For me personally, I never use my AV. I analyse files myself using tools so I know not to launch the file if I find anything malicious. Should I remove Avast! or not? Keep in mind I have like 8 types of protection services such as firewall, web shield, file shield so it takes up ALOT of CPU power which could be used to speed up my system.
  6. I have been experiencing a weird thing with my computer... I noticed that there were command windows popping really fast (and disappearing) frequently, which I thought was some sort of malware. After downloading Malwarebytes I was able to recognise it. The domain is rtp.vscreenshot.com, it is trying to open several ports with different IPs. After looking up the IPs it turns out they belong to Amazon. The request is originating from a program installed in the program files x86 under the name "vSnapshot". It is constantly in progress more than 50 times daily. Luckily, Malwarebytes is constantly blocking it. However, I don't know exactly what it is? what it is trying to do ? should I remove it? and if so, how? Could anyone help??
  7. I have both K7 and Malwarebytes antimalware installed on my pc. But the realtime protection of malwarebytes is not upto the mark. I have turned off K7 and checked it also by using some old hack tools . The moment I try to open the hack tool K7 immediately reports it as virus and removes it. But when K7 is turned off malwarebytes doesn't even respond to it and after scanning the file it reports it as safe So my question is whether malwarebytes is just a simple tool capable of removing adware and other related browser hijacking tool OR Whether it is a complete antivirus with active real time protection
  8. So, i apparently installed the "http://nova.rambler.ru" virus without my permission. Every time i write something in the google search bar, it redirects me to the searching bar of rambler. I've tried using over 3 different anti viruses that were recommended to remove it, non found the infected file. I've followed every single step - in regedit "http://nova.rambler.ru" is not mentioned, i've tried reseting the browser settings and it didnt work, and no matter what i tried i just couldnt remove it. could someone please give me a hand? Also, when i click links it sometimes pops up ads.
  9. This is so strange! Yahoo verification codes coming from SAME number as a known scammer calling me for 3 months!! On 10-5-16 I began to get calls from scammers saying they were working for tech support at a company called TechLiveConnect.com, which was just changed to PremiumTechSupport.com and I had a refund coming. I called the company I had done business with for info at 877-958-7560, but was transferred to the scammers IN MID CALL. Later, I got 4 calls from 408-610-4900, some seconds apart, from different live techs wanting to work on my computer all supposedly from Avangate (the parent company to PremiumTechSupport and TechLiveConnect) but they were all telling me to call them back at the number I called in the first place which started the scam: 877-958-7560 (PremiumTechSupport.com & TechLiveConnect.com.) I've gotten 15 calls from 408-610-4900 between 10-5-16 and 12- 15-16 when they may have changed numbers. Now the really strange part. On 12-31-16, and again on 1-12-17, I was logging into my email and had to get a verification code from Yahoo so I had Yahoo call my phone. The verification code came from 408-610-4900, the EXACT SAME NUMBER THE SCAMMERS HAD USED for the past 3 months. That's quite a coincidence!!! The 4 calls mentioned above could not have come from Yahoo because my computer was turned off. I was not using my email. It was not a recorded voice reading numbers, those were real people wanting me to log into my bank account. When I looked up the number months ago, it was registered to a known spammer, not Yahoo. I would like to hear from Yahoo what the actual number is which the verification code call is supposed to come from but there is nobody to talk to there. Does anyone remember what number Yahoo's verification calls came from before 12-15-16? Had Yahoo also just changed this number and just happened to get assigned the scammer's old number? Any guesses as to what's happening??? Thank you.
  10. I am using Malwarebytes 3.0 Premium and Norton Security 22.8.1.14 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 set for exclusion in Malwarebytes is C:\Program Files (x86)\Norton Security And no Malwarebytes files or folders have as of yet been excluded from Norton scans.
  11. Is it possible to add an "add to blacklist" (+ if possible reporting) option for URLs and ip addresses instead of only having an "add to web exclusive" option. I was looking for this option after I started to get random redirects on websites (To be precise mostly on forums and recently sometimes 9gag, yet never on the websites that offer videos that showcase the performance of certain "activities", even the more shady ones). The redirects are almost certainly pure javascript based since: - Exhaustive scanning with antivirus and anti-malware tools only gives all clears - It is ONLY on those specific sites - Redirects are not instantaneous, they occur suddenly after 30 seconds to 5 minutes without the need to click on anything. However, sometimes they do not occur at all. - The go back button history is filled up with the malicious URL (thus rendering it useless to go back to the intended site) - The redirects keep quiet after an attempt but return after clearing history and cookies
  12. I've been looking at personal use 3rd party VPN supplier info a bit. Can anyone here recommend VPN service provider or recommend a site where I can get good information? We travel quite a bit, and I believe a VPN connection would allow me to use my PC more securely from a hotel room.
