Criteria for determining that a website is malicious


Recommended Posts

I've been looking in Help and on the Forum for any explanation of exactly what is meant by a "malicious website" that merits blocking by Malwarebytes.  What criteria are used to determine this?  Is it only the number of scripts trying to install unwanted programs?  Are there any judgments made in terms of content?  IP's that hackers operate from?

Hi...

I also am receiving a popup mentioning of a website block...

I am currently using utorrent.exe (free download application from www.utorrent.com) to download movies ...

Does this mean that this application is a virus and I should now remove from my PC? 

I have also noticed in History that Malware has quarantined many files, registry key, etc..

please advise

Hi:

 

OOPS!

It looks as if you have posted in the wrong area of the forum.

 

This KB topic explains the IP blocks with torrents: Why does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware block BitTorrent or other Peer-to-Peer Programs?

However, you also said:

That suggests that you might be infected.

 

We can't work on malware diagnostics and removal in this sub-section of the forum.

So, for expert assistance, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
A malware analyst will guide you through the cleanup process.

Thanks,
