[SOLVED] An Exploit Attempt Has Been Blocked

Recommended Posts

Windows 8.1 x64

Firefox 26.0 x32

Silverlight 5.1.20913.0 x64

MBAE 0.095.0250

 

I attempted to load Freestockcharts.com this AM and got the "An Exploit Attempt Has Been Blocked" message and Silvelight crashed.  I then attempted toad a few more website pages that use Silverlight like MSN.com and the pages loaded without a problem.  I then used seveal on-line URL scanners to see if any of them detected Malware on Freestockscharts.com.  All of the on-line scanners showed Freestockcharts.com to be clean.

 

Any ideas as to what might be going on with this?

 

Thanks

This is a known problem with one of the new anti-exploit techniques. We've fixed it already and it will be released in the final 0.09.5. In the meantime I'll send you the fix via PM so that you can verify that it's working.

 Thanks.  Just an update.  On my other W8.1 computer same software configuation the website opened fine.   On my W7 x64 and W8 x64 computers same software configuraton except the OS, Silverlight crashed without a popup from MBAE and no info in log.  I forwarded the crash reports to Microsoft.

I downloaded and unzipped the file.  I followed the steps you outlined in the PM.  Addtionally I ran CCleaner and Search Everything to make sure the uninstalled version was completely gone.  I then ran the unzipped .exe file installing the verson of MBAE that is in the .exe file you put the link to in the PM.

 

It made no difference.

 

I went to the log clicked on the line item and Exclusions remained greyed out so I couldn't exclude the URL.   I then uninstalled the version you sent via PM and the URL is now accessible.  As to why Silverlight is crashing on my W7 and W8 computers without a MBAE popup mesage I have no idea but I have had this problem before with the same website and an uninstall and reinstall of Silevelight and/or Silverlight updated (I can't recalll which, mabye even both on different occassions) has corrected the problem

Maybe this is a different issue. Please attach here your logfile C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit\mbae-default.log

I uninstalled both Silverlight and MBAE on the one W8.1 computer in which I continued to get the blocking message even after installing the MBAE version you gave me the link to.   Then I reinstalled both using the file you gave me the link to.   Everything is okay, at least for now.  I realize Silvelight has lets say "certain issue" probably due to the programing software and design.  Uninstalling and reinstalling it as I noted above seems to fix them except for possible security issues at least until things get messed up again.

 

As far as the my Silverlight crashes on my W7 and my W8 computers go, Silverlight continued to crash even after uninstalling MBAE   I don't use that website which is crashing Silverlight very often on those two computers so at my leisure I will uninstall and reinstall Silverlight on those two computers and get back if their are any MBAE blocking rlelating issues.using the vesion of MBAE you gave me the link to

 

Thanks for your help and quick response.
