I reset my phone back to factory settings after Malwarebytes discoveredTrojan.Dropper.Agent.BJin my settings app! I would like to know if there is anything I can do to get this virus off my phone.
I'm a newbie (to Malwarebytes Anti-malware), running (trial expired) 184.108.40.2062. I want to understand the basic operations, settings, etc of the software so that I can perform my own investigation before asking for full-blown assistance as described in "Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers". My computer seems to be working OK, except for repeated e-mail hijacking. Altho' Malwarebytes' Detection & Protection Settings has "Scan for Rootkits" checked, the Scanning History log shows "Rootkits:Disabled". Why is that? Recommended Settings show "Scan for rootkits" unchecked. My e-mail has been hi-jacked several times this year...malicious e-mail sent to people in my address book. Isn't that caused by rootkits? Even if not, why wouldn't I want to scan for rootkits? See log below (from a cancelled scan). Note that Malware Protection, Malicious Website Protection & Self-protection are all disabled (which I didn't notice before). I'm confused about why these protections would be disabled. I've been taking comfort after several runnings of Malwarebytes, based on "no malicious items detected", that maybe the problem wasn't with my computer, but possibly with one of my contacts' computer. What am I missing?
