Discord CDNs

Recommended Posts

We are currently blocking cdn[.]discordapp[.]com as we have identified a malicious file on there.

I have this as well and just wanted to ask a few questions:

1) Do we know what the malicious file is and why there's a malicious file there? 

2) How did it get there, was it to do with the new update?

3) Is there a plan to resolve it or will Malware bytes keep blocking it?

I guess it's all up to the Discord team. MWB just prevents bad stuff.

Guess so, it looks like it updated on the 11th (Yesterday for me). Hope it gets sorted out 'cause I'm getting spammed whenever a message is sent on Discord.

Hi, I run a Discord server, and was curious if I should discourage use until this is resolved?  Or can somebody confirm this as a false positive.

Zynthesist says it's real, but i can use Discord for chat just fine. But if someone tries to send me print screens I can't open them because MWB blocks the links.

Just an update: CDNs are still blocked as of 9:30 est. App runs fine in spite of it, Website Blocked just bounces up and down like a kid on a sugar rush. Discord Twitter hasn't said what the problem is, just that they're working with MWB.

Great to hear MBAM and Discord are both already on the case. As of 13:33 PST (GMT-8) hours, cdn.discordapp.com is still being blocked. But I'm sure it'll be resolved soon. :)

You can whitelist the IP as it's a false positive (I asked the Discord team myself on Facebook).

1) If Discord haven't properly locked down their servers then anyone could upload any number of exploitable files.

2) A user uploaded it.

3) Malwarebytes only blocks sites while it's a threat, if Discord get a grip, then they'll be unblocked.

Having the same issue, Canadian servers only I am guessing?

 

BUT I have had another surprise, sometimes it seems after it is detected my Malware protection is shut off? I am using the computer app and not the website. I tried with the website, and when detected, it shut down the Malice website protection. This did not happen every time, nor is it easy to replicate. Yet it has happened a few times (mostly on the desktop app than website version as I do not use that as often)

Has anyone esle had this happen? if so we should make it be know... if not, then it could be something else my end...but it ONLY happens with Discord....

Might want to check your event viewer for error logs, see what it's reporting.

Any word from Malwarebytes yet? Last post from them was posted Thursday at 05:55 PM of this week.Its pretty annoying if it is nothing but if it is something, Discord really needs to work it out with Malwarebytes. Love using both programs but little things like changing my profile picture is not working because of this. Some post in the chat of links, like from youtube, are not coming through because of this.

CDN servers are part of Content Delivery Networks. It has nothing to do with Canada :)

Although there are Canadian CDNs, but that's outside the scope of the intended question.

Looks like Discord has resolved the malware on their servers and as of v2017.01.04.06 you no longer get warned about CDN.DiscordApp.com

As far as I can tell, this isn't true. my definitions are up to date and I'm still getting warnings. In fact, it sounds to me like you aren't up to date. The latest definitions were released today, on the 14th. The ones you name appear to be 10 days old.
