I will submit this and let our research Team know.


We are not:
A pop-up blocker, anti-virus nor Firewall.
We don't prefiter web pages. That is your web browsers + antivirus along with the firewalls job.

We remove **Malware**


That appears to be a new infection that only 4 anti-virus are hitting on it.







No single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. Just because one anti-virus or anti-malware scanner detected threats that another missed, does not mean its more effective. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear and it takes time for them to be reported, samples collected, analyzed, and tested by anti-vendors. Every vendor's virus lab and program scanning engine is different. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses and they often use a mix of technologies to detect and remove malware.

To begin with, it is not a virus.
A cryptor is a program used to manipulate an executable binary in such a fashion that its strings are obfuscated, its size and checksum are altered and its original format is altered.
A crypted detection is based upon a file that has been manipulated by a cryptor.
Detection is made difficult by this binary manipulation and is part of the cat and mouse game of malware detection.  In is not a case of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware ( MBAM ) being good or not.  Each anti malware vendor has the same issues.  It is a case of the mouse outsmarting the mouse trap at this point in time.  Once Malwarebytes' researchers get a handle on the mouse outsmarting the mouse trap, they will create a new mouse trap that has has a higher efficacy.


That is why Malwarebytes invites its users submit malware ( in accordance with its guidelines )  so they can build that better mouse trap based upon malware submission examination.
Normal day-to-day malware and Potentuially Unwanted Programs ( PUPs) are submitted in;  Newest Malware Threats
Those that are cyptographic, hold a system and/or files for ransom or are in the rogue families ( fake anti virus, fake hard disk repair utilities, etc ) are submitted in;  Newest Rogue-Ransomware Threats
Please reference the following on how to provide sample submissions such that Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) can detect targeted but presently undetected threats.
