Typo when visiting Malwarebytes -- did I damage my system?


Birini

Recommended Posts

I just tried to visit the malwarebytes blog but instead of typing "blog.malwarebytes.org" I typed "blog.malwarebyte.org." (no "s".) I prompty got redirected to "www.malwarecleaner.co." MBAE didn't detect anything and scans from both MBAM and my anti-virus (Webroot secure anywhere) came up clean.

Has anyone else made this mistake? Did you get the same result? Do I have a hidden infection I need to deal with?

Thanks

Good thing you reported it Birini :) Currently on it. Downloading the program advertised on the website to see if it's legitimate or not, but most likely not.

Edit: Reported the installer since it's already flagged by some Antivirus vendors on VirusTotal, and it uses deceptive methods. Thanks!
