Im not exactly sure where to post this but any information would be extremely helpful. Im currently in a PSC hearing with my ISP over speeds, security, spam calls & personal information theft. My ISP says their product can protect and help stop spam calls, identity and personal information theft and much more. They basically stated that any issues we have with both internet and phone security could have been stopped by their software. They have also tried to force it upon us multiple times as well as suggested heavily in a hearing that their software is superior to Malwarebytes. All I know is when I had their software years ago, all 3 of the house computers got ransomware and had to be reset or new hard drives. A total loss of all data and all 3 people had personal attacks on their banking, identity and abuse of their personal information of various sorts. Since we switched we have had 0 issues over the past years. The company even had 2 techs tell me that there is no way their service is better than Malwarebytes, they use it themselves "but of course we have to push our own product" The company is Frontier Communications. Ive reached out in many ways to Malwarebytes for a general response, statement or any information on a comparison or how to go about doing this myself. Such has does their statement about stopping all forms of scam, spam and theft even possible? How could one gauge which product offers the best protection? If anyone could help shed some light on the issues it would be Greatly appreciated! Im not looking to drag MB into this but a general statement or information I could obtain and use on my own would be helpful. TIA.
So I've been getting connections from strange IP's for a long time and Malwarebytes has always notified me of it and classified the attempts as malware. These attempts would usually happen around 4-5 times a week for the past 5 months or so and Malwarebytes Premium would show no additional information on the attempts apart from IP & Port. Recently though these attempts have been much more frequent (3-9 times a day) and coming from different IP's and sometimes even showing domains which also are different from each other. Instead of saying it was an attempt to infect my PM with malware it now says it was a Trojan instead. I've scanned my PC with Malwarebytes Premium, Adwcleaner and Avast with no results each time. Just recently I've been looking into the IP's with different online tools: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/ https://www.virustotal.com/#/home/url These would show that most of the IP's that Malwarebytes would inform me as Trojan infect attempts are trying to infect me with the Zero-day malware. One of the recent IP's I had checked was this and it seems to be a spam bot (from a botnet most likely) trying to infect PC's with the Zero-day malware. https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/ip/188.8.131.52 Most frightening is the fact that after after using a VPN or even double proxies they still manage to connect to me. I'm using NordVPN and even then I am getting spammed. Majority of the attempts only show the type of the malware and the IP. Not domain or the file it was coming from (assuming I have something on my PC that lets them connect to me through changing my IP address. So is my PC, information and files in danger with how things are now, or am I safe? Sorry the text on the image is in Finnish. Also not sure if the topic is in a wrong category, move it if it is.
Hi I like to report an suspicious email from yesterday, heres what it said.: Hello. Dont consider on my grammar, I am from China.We loaded our virus on your OS.Now I thiefted all personal data from your device. In addition I have some more evidence.The most amusing compromising which I have- its a videotape with your masturbation.I put malware on a porn web site and after you downloaded it. When you picked the video and clicked on a play, my deleterious soft instantly downloaded on your Operating System. After adjusting, your web camera shoot the videotape with you self-abusing, furthermore I captured the video you chose. In next few days my deleterious soft collected all your social and work contacts. Its obviously a scam because one thing I use Linux to surf the web and really don't touch free porn sites. And this person finishes by saying: If you desire to erase all the evidence- pay me 640 usd in BTC(cryptocurrency). I provide you my Btc address - 19U6ZoDKgaxHcnvNYXTeucpUWrMMav7PQE and hers there email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, So my problem is that I downloaded a cracked game... (I know, I know, its full of malware) but this time I messed up and I got .exe that I think installed a malware, now it's opening a random spam tab in chrome every 40 mins or so. So first things that I did was deleting the .exe, after that, I went to Task Manager and saw that a unnamed Program was using 50% of my CPU... I went to File location and it was svhost... I then run a MalwareBytes scan with free premium trial and deleted everything that I didn't know what it was. So now what I do is I task kill the unnamed thing, but that doesnt block it from opening chrome pages... P.S: sorry for my bad English I'm from Portugal.
