GPS being blocked?


Recommended Posts

so I babysit a bunch of squad computers.  they all have GPS--either the built in GPS (Panasonic) or the GPS on the Sierra wireless/Verizon card


It seems that all of the Sierra wireless card GPS is being blocked after updating to 3.2.2


I haven't noticed any pop-ups, but it looks like this is just on the sierra wireless GPS signals as of now.


I am trying to investigate, and get more firm proof, but was wondering if you have heard such a thing.

With "killing", do you mean, Malwarebytes actually deletes it? So its gone afterwards from the location?

Or do you mean "killed", that the process is only killed? In that case, a reboot should reload the process again.

So in case of the process only being killed, but the file is still present - then it's because our antiransomware behavior detection sees it as suspicious, but fails to do additional checks (most probably because the PC doesn't have internet connection). So that's why it takes the "better safe than sorry" approach and kills the file from running. It doesn't delete it. 

In that case, either connect to the internet, or add the file that gets killed to the Malwarebytes exclusions.
