  1. As the title says MalwareBytes detected GTA5.EXE as a trojan.Im confused by this because i validated the game files and it says its a legtimate game on steam AND i ran a full scan and no threats were found.one thing that confused me was that the action was classified as "Blocked website" when its clearly the application files thats the potential problem here.What scares me the most about this is that after the "website" was blocked i got a bsod after called Kernel security check error,Now i dont know much about computers but im sure that Malwarebytes probably didnt cause it.To anyone who sees
  2. Hello! I was recently doing a full scan of my PC when MBAM reported a detection on my HDD dedicated for video games. The file in question is located in my Steam Library's files for Half-Life 2, under, "COMMON\HALF-LIFE 2\BIN\DMXCONVERT.EXE" . The type of malware is called, "Malware.AI.4098362766." This made me curious as it's located in my Steam files, not somewhere malware typically is known to be harbored, but then again anything's possible. I scanned the folder with Windows Security, and nothing came back positive. I believe this might be a false positive. I ran the file in question thro
  3. Hello I have been using steam for many years, but within the last few days I'm starting to think something may be wrong. On Saturday Night my machine failed to launch a game Paladins. The Paladins support site suggested many causes one of which was a possible virus was detected by the anti-cheat software. I immediate ran a malwarebytes full system scan, but the scan reported no concerns. I rebooted my computer and then Paladins worked fine. Today I was attempting to update another game and received a popup stating that malwarebytes had blocked outgoing traffic. I am running anothe

  5. After uninstalling a game I attempted to manually delete the leftover files. Deleting the main folder deleted some files & folders inside, but the main folder stayed, as well as some sub-folders & files. And something bizarre happened (or is this normal?) - after attempting to manually delete some of the files (perma [shift+del]) they seemed to be deleted, but after going a directory up and then returning to the one were the file was [attempted] deleted it somehow reappeared. I know that files can refuse to be deleted because they are "in use", but this I'm seeing for the first tim
  6. I launched my Steam launcher yesterday. It did an update (very regular since I am a beta tester for Steam) and when it went to launch after the update, Malwarebytes instantly quarantined Steme.exe. As the launcher updates are completely automatic (I don't have to go somewhere to get them, they auto dl and install) I am reasonable sure that it was received from Steam itself, and not a third party. I'm not sure where the issue is, but I highly doubt the Steam service is "Ransomware" as Malwarebytes claims it is. This is the first issue I have ever had with your product, and I have ran it since v
  7. I'm unable to connect too the server of this STEAM game due to this program. When I turn off "Web Protection", it's able to connect. (Example in the picture.) Even when I exclude both the program and the IP address of the game, it still doesn't "Exclude."

  10. Hi! Recently I've been experiencing website blocked popups from Malwarebytes while playing Don't Starve Together on steam, I posted about this in the Website Blocking section before (My Topic) and was told that the ip had been blocked cause it has been known to distribute malware, and was then told if it was coming from steam to not worry about it so i continued to let malwarebytes block the incoming connections, however continued reports from my Malwarebytes has prompted me to post here. I had wondered if it was an issue from the steam workshop so I uninstalled the game, went into my fil
  11. I installed Malwarebytes to scan for potential viruses on my PC. Following that scan I had no issues shown on my system. However, I was placed on the Premium trial during which MAlwarebytes was using its active protection to detect and block access to "malicious sites". However, this blocked me from using many trusted services, including application like Teamspeak and Discord as well as seeming to block any and all use of game servers. I attempted to use the exclusion function to restore my access however that has yet to work. I also attempted to uninstall Malwarebytes, however the issue persi
  12. Hello, For starters I wanted to know if it's advisable to add the steam.exe and steamwebhelper.exe to the list of protected applications in MBAM Premium real-time protection list. I did just that and added steam as a "media player" (??) and steamwebhelper.exe as a Chromium based browser. Last night I purchased Nier: Automata and upon executing it for the first time (triggering its install process) MBAM blocked the nierautomata.exe saying it was a generic exploit agent. Subsequent attempts after verifying the game's integrity reproduces the same behavior. Most importantly I would like t
  13. Hey guys, So I've been having an issue with Steam for the past few months, every sense the new update came out. This issue is that the game hosting service steam doesn't have the ability to connect to servers after I install Malware-bytes onto my desktop. I've tested this multiple times, altered multiple factors and done a number of different things, and this is the only constant issue. Whenever I attempt to log in with malware byte installed, steam fails to connect to its servers, but once its been purged via the removal tool steam has no issues. I would love to keep using Malware-bytes serv
  14. I have been getting a constant list of Quarantine's that say similar topics as Hijackers, risk ware. I have taken a screenshot of the quarantined items for display here.
  15. Malwarebytes Version: Component Package Version: 1.0.103 Update Package Version: 1.0.1793 I use Malwarebytes premium. So, as you may or may not know Garry's Mod is a sandbox game on steam. I am having an issue where when I join servers sometimes the game will crash in the loading screen and Malwarebytes will mark the file as ransomware. Sometimes it states that it is chrome.exe and sometimes it states that it is the HL2.exe process itself located in the Garry's Mod folder. (Which makes sense as many Media player addons use a chromium base as far as I am aware.) I
  16. So shortly after updating to 3.0.6, I'm not able to run Steam with Ransomware Protection enabled. It almost immediately crashes Steam and I'm unable to relaunch the program. No alerts or anything from MBAM either. I even added the Steam executable to the Exclusions list.
  17. My Dad is experiencing problems with his laptop, so I am helping him out. You guys have helped me loads in the past with my previous malware infections. He has a laptop running Windows 10 (Recent MS Upgrade from 7) A few weeks ago he clicked a bad link on facebook ( a fake news story ), and he had a series of popups which disabled his laptop. In these popup there were ransom demands etc. Instinctively he pulled the plug on the router to stop the internet connection and shut down his laptop, after hearing so much about ransom demands corrupting your pc. He then turned the laptop
  18. *you may skip this paragraph I have clean installed Windows 10 1607 TWO WEEKS ago because my old system cannot update to anniversary update and system files are all messed up. Of Course, The first software I installed was malwarebytes Anti-Malware. but due to a problem (I cannot activate my license key because I haven't (and cannot) deactivate my license on my past System), my Malwarebytes is not active, and I probably forgot to turn on free trial because I was waiting for support team's reply about my license. * anyway, I scanned my computer with a free trial malwarebytes and it fou
  19. when downloading Steam Client and Origin Client(Origin EA) the initiated downloads referred to a.akamaihd.net instead of where it usually always had in the past, https//store.steampowered.com/about/ and http://www.dm.origin.com/download,. respectively Also in addition to this,a.akamaihd.net referral, when I checked my yahoo e-mail, an unknown file passed through my downloader in Microsoft.Edge, the file is named ESQ1zrkb.js . it did not let me stop it in time and it did nothing but warn me it was not from a legitmate source. I was warned but it did not stop the download, it auto-down

  21. i am currently having problems with the game launcher known as Steam, when ever i open it up it just bombards me with adware such as "update flash" and other common viruses. the infected file seemed to be "steamwebhelper.exe". i was wondering if i could get help with this. (THE ATTACHED PHOTO IS ONLY A PORTION OF THE ADWARE)
  22. Hello, I've been getting pop-ups when going into my Steam Store page. The popups won't let me click on anything until I close them and when I do another pops up. It's a total of 2 pop-ups each time, and some times it only pops up when I click somewhere on the Store page. The popups are only in steam and I don't get popups anywhere else. It is effecting 2 of my computers one is a Laptop and the other is my Desktop. I've uploaded some picture of the popups and Farbar Recovery Scans of both computers in question. I have run Malwarebytes scan both quick and full as well as Ccleaner and Adwcleaner
  23. Hey everybody. I just wanted to warn you that Anti - Ransomware beta might see steam.exe as a ransomware, which it surely isn't. So don't start panicing, when Anrti - Ransomware calls it so. PS: I'm sorry for my bad gramma skills :/
  24. A few days ago i experienced some sort of adware whil browsing using chrom. I ran Malewarebytes Anti-Maleware and it found some files which i then removed. The problem seem to be solved. Today while using Steam, Malewarebytes started to block some sites, while some new Steam windows opend with ads (with the "powered by dnsunlocker" line) as well as some suspicious "JavaScript Confirm" window. The Task Manager revealed that three instances of "SteamWebHelper.exe" were running. As i tried to terminate those proccesses the "JavaScript Confirm" window dissapeared only to reappear along with the
  25. So I was playing Counter-Strike 1.6 in a trusted server and everyone in it started to lose connection. I think the server was experiencing problems and this happened about 4-5 times before I just gave up and decided to take a break. I went back to my desktop and MBAM popped up in the corner and blocked a malicious website I'm guessing and it popped up about 3-4 times with different IP addresses. I looked at my applications log to see if this happened earlier and I found the same thing that it blocked some IPs from a week ago as well. Yesterday was over 50 website IPs that it blocked and today
