IE and MS webmail - blocks upload and paste


Recommended Posts

Greetings -

New to anti-exploit, old to malwarebytes.

Using IE to access MS webmail, email replies cannot be sent, and incoming email with digital signatures cannot forward with included text.

Looked at MAE log, found VB blocked IE. Turned of VB browser protection. Still blocks. Disabled MAE. Uploads and forward text work.

Tried a second time after reboot, verified VB blocking in IE browser was off. Blocks send mail. Disable MAE, sends OK. Read the log, VB blocks even though it is turned off in preferences, and remained off after reboot.

RTFB, zipped the entire folder as required.

Welcome to the forum.

There are 2 different techniques for VB Scripting, one under Advanced Settings -> Application Hardening and another under Advanced Settings -> Application Behavior Protection. Please make sure both are disabled and close and re-open your browser completely to test again.

It's ironic MS webmail still relies on vbscripting even if MS has deprecated vbscripting some time ago due to how insecure it is and how much it is being exploited in the wild by Exploit Kits such as Angler.
