  1. Hello I saw my malwarebytes forums profile from a friend's profile and it showed that my last visited had been on Friday at 3:15pm but I didn't log at that time. I checked my recent devices and my last device was my computer and it said "last logged: Friday at 10:12 am" and there's no other device after that. Am I hacked or why doesn't it display a time I didn't log? Thanks in advance
  2. Hello.. Can anyone tell me if my El Capitian OX 10.11.6 has vulnerbilities, security issues because it is an outdated version of my iMac? Will/is Malwarebytes Premium enough protection without using additional security ...such as Anti Virus Programs? I am running Webroot (with MBP) and I have just heard that the development teams are not really protecting the older Mac versions right now because they are concentrating on Catalina and Big Sur... Also Does Malwarebytes conflict with Webroot. I have freezing up on my system along with the spinning beach balls when opening browsers
  3. My computer is being dogged by a trojan - which Malwarebytes is blocking. Problem is, Malwarebytes is not removing the trojan but instead every few seconds when the trojan wants to spread, the malwarebytes protection shield also pops up. This means every few second this battle ensues. The trojan is using the windows power shell. I found I could pause the battle when going into task bar and ending the power shell task. When reporting a support ticket or otherwise to solve this issue, Malwarebytes wants me to download the security tool and run it to get a log. I have done this repeatedly a
  4. For security features, Quad9 and CleanBrowsing are certainly the best DNS servers. OpenDNS is more about parental control on its free version. I've been using Quad9 on my router for quite some time, but recently discovered CleanBrowsing, which one do you prefer?
  5. I'm a particular living in Europe. Smartphones with 128 Go Memory are very expensive in the shops. Buying them by Wish for an example from China is a lot cheaper. The information about risks are confuses. Are they dus to commercial war between US and China or are they a real risk is unclar. Especially if we don't go in holidays in China, where it would be possible that the malware could be installed by the custom. If it is really a risk of installed malwares in smartphones bought in China, will Malwarebytes for Android find and destroy them? Do have somebody experience with this
  6. An Unknown computer named TERRY-PC appeared on our Mbam device list. Neither my partner nor myself have given access to a third party. After searching the name it would appear to be in some way connected with Microsoft Win 10 admin operations. But how could it appear on my Mbam device list without being registered and obtaining access by password? Or are devices operating on the computer simply reflected in the Mbam device list? Unclear about that. Next question concerns security. Can a user on a shared Mbam account hack the online data of other users? Ty in advance.
  7. It's great that we have password security, however: Please provide a checkbox for active session, to stay signed in, so we don't have to enter a password ten or twenty times to change the settings.
  8. On my phone I can only use stock ROM which is horrible and does not update, or LineageOS 14.1 which I am using. The problem is that the guy who made the port is not interested in providing any updates, not even security ones. So, my phone is stuck with security patches from 8. November 2018. I have a paid version of Malwarebytes AntiMalware on the phone, with all security options turned on. What I am wondering about is whether Malwarebytes will protect me against being spied on with the camera and/or microphone when I am online? I know that apps like browsers and so on require permission
  9. As the Tweet and title says, I'm trying to re-enable 2FA for my forums account after getting a new phone. I went to the Settings > Account Security page and tried to change my Google Authenticator settings, but the "Enable" link on the page just re-directs back to the same place. I can't be the first person who needs to change their 2FA settings after their old device dies, and can get into their account through alternate (i.e. email) means, but then gets stuck.
  10. Dear Forum, does Malwarebytes Premium 3.0 function as a firewall? For example, in the same way that Windows Defender is a firewall? Or do people suggest that I configure the Windows Defender Firewall, or will Windows Defender firewall conflict with Malwarebytes? Thanks!
  11. Hello everyone, I just read this article and got a little worried: https://www.howtogeek.com/fyi/bing-is-pushing-malware-when-you-search-for-chrome/ I have three quick questions that I hope someone could help me with: 1. If you actually run that phony installer, will it still act as the official installer? As in everything will act normally but you actually have a hidden malware in your Chrome? 2. If I installed Chrome a while ago, how can I check that my installation is genuine and not a fake Google Chrome? I don' have the installer anymore. 3. Would a Malwarebyt
  12. Is it ok to ask the opinions of some of the more experienced security guys here on the usefulness of a VPN service? I have been seeing a lot of ads for them on many of my favorite tech you tubers channels, I am more looking for actual experience with and real world benefits not from an advertisement. Also if anyone does use one or has done the research and subscribed to one are there any recommended ones? Preferably easy to use and configure. If this is not OK or against forum rules please feel free to lock or remove this. Thanks Dave
  13. Hello, Talking with Support yesterday, it was discovered that Malwarebytes does NOT support the Windows 10 redirection of Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Pictures, Videos or 3D Objects to another partition. For those of us that use a SSD for the OS or routinely perform a fresh install to cleanup and optimize Windows 10 it is a MAJOR advantage to not have EVERYTHING on the same physical drive as the OS. Windows 10 FULLY supports redirection. This is one of several methods to redirecting them: 1. Open File Explorer 2. In the Quick Access area or you can go under This PC if you
  14. I do not know if it's the right place to make this request. I have come to know about this application which I enclose which should display in one screen the versions of the apple security settings installed in the system (xprotect, gatekeeper, MRT, and any other available updates) without having to search with terminal commands or other But I do not know if it's a dangerous application. I thank the staff in advance or anyone else who can give me an answer. Greetings Massimiliano LockRattler.app.zip
  15. 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
  16. 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?
  17. Does Malwarebytes offer an internet security program? If not which do you recommend?
  18. 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
  19. 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 sinc
  20. 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
  21. 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 tim
  22. 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.
  23. 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 Ava
  24. 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 s
  25. 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
