  1. The reason that these pups are not going away is because they are syncing across Chrome on all devices including Mac Linux Android and PC. It is the same file being sent by Chrome across all platforms. It is only detected by Malwarebytes on the PC, it is not detected by malwarebytes for Android or for Mac. I tried the following experiment: I disable all of my devices except for say, one mac and one PC and I clean the PC and then I let the PC in the Mac sync the infection comes back to the PC even though the Mac tested clean (I eat with the Mac version of Malwarebytes). The same is true for Android and Linux. Android tests clean, I cannot tell you about Linux other than it does not show up in bitdefender. I performed an additional experiment to test the hypothesis that the infection is syncing with the Google cloud as well, in addition to syncing with other machines- however I do not think that's the case because when I disable all devices except one PC, and then clean the one PC with Malwarebytes, the one PC does not get infected until I fire up Chrome on another device. Perhaps Malwarebytes could list these PUPs along with the platform-specific virus definitions for mac and Android, however that will not fix the problem for Linux, and something else has to be done there. If you have a beta version of malwarebytes for Linux this would be a good time to release a limited functionality version of it to just do this one thing. - B
  2. I'm having the same problem. I've tried turning chrome sync off and rescaning and it still comes up.
  3. I'm getting the exact same behavior, with Pup.optional.Conduit and Pop.optional.SweetIM, starting today. I've literally formatted my hard drive, reinstalled nothing but Chrome, and got the same thing immediately. ???
