"Font Wasn't Found" malware scam

Recommended Posts

There's a new virus out there and I got caught, gladly MalwareBytes alerted me on time. Unfortunately the file is on my machine, it's called "Chrome font.exe" and not even FileASSASSIN was able to delete it. How can I delete it?

Also, although MalwareBytes alerted me of this malware, as soon as my PC restarted, the first page that showed up on Chrome was from Spora Randomware saying that all my files are now encrypted and I would need to follow a certain procedure to revert this process, but I see no different whatsoever on my files, I can open them, edit and delete them with no problems. Should I double check something else?

I already ran MalwareBytes, Superantispyware and AdwCleaner, nothing showed up.


Thank you and best regards,

Hello @shivakanou

Can you please post the protection log from Malwarebytes showing what it blocked. We need to get some other logs to so that we can take a look at what's going on with your computer.

Run the scan from the topic here Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers and post back the logs once ready as an attachment.
