What is PUP.Optional.Telstra.ChrPRST?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right section or not. I run scans often enough and this hasn't shown up before. It's also been a case of I haven't downloaded any programs or extensions lately either. But the last week and a half this has shown up. Is it a false positive? 

 

Thanks for all replies and help! :)

Oh, and I should mention this is showing up as a Registry Key after the scan is over.

Really need to see the whole scan log if you can copy and paste it here or attach it. Tough to say what is going on without that.

 

Thanks.

Hello,

 

Telstra is an add-on for Chrome that displays advertisements in your browser. It has been around a while but a couple missed traces were added to our database recently which is likely why you are just seeing it now even though the actual program itself has been removed already. It is a leftover registry entry from when the program was installed.

It is safe to let Malwarebytes remove the trace.

 

If you still see the detection after MBAM has cleaned it up, you can get assistance to clean up any leftovers by following instructions on this page:

Thank you so much for the help! I'll remove it now and I'll update later on when I scan again in the afternoon. Thanks again! :)
