remove fraud: worldnaturenetc.xyz? [or stop MWB alerts?]

Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes blocks a fraud alert from "worldnaturenet.xyz" Thank you. But it blocks it every five seconds! I cant' do anything on Chrome because of never stopping alerts. Followed all the standard methods, delete cache, extensions, history, and scanned probably twenty times by MWB and a half dozen other programs. Nothing is ever found.

I've reached the point where I've  given up trying to find the trigger and will now be happy to STOP the constant MWB popups showing the block.

I don't know how to generate "FIRST" log so attached exported MWB file. Also snapshot of popup alert.

This pops up every few seconds making Chrome very difficult to even use. The Port changes constantly

blanken,

Did you follow the MWB pages? It's a long list of things to try but none worked for me.

I've also tried about eight various malware/spyware/virus scans-nothing.

Also deleted cache, history and extensions--nothing

I am pleased MWB has done it's job and blocked it. That said, a popup alert very few seconds for hours make it frustrating to use Chrome.

Since it only happens in Chrome, I'll wait another day and then totally remove Chrome and start over.

Hi guys :)

Looks like this thread has been overlooked when it was posted, I'll see if I can get a Staff member to address this.

Sit tight!

Edit: On a side note, this website is blocked by Malwarebytes for Fraud.

Do the block occurs only when you launches Google Chrome? Or even when it's not running (and there are no chrome.exe processes running in the Task Manager)?

From my experience, I've never seen uBlock Origin block a legitimate site. Of course, some "shady" ones that you could use could be blocked, but if you access them, uBlock will block it but ask you if you want to add it to your exclusions.

I don't pretend to understand these things so a dumb question. I'm pleased MWB blocks this annoyance, but isn't there something within Chrome that is trying to direct us to that fraud site? Isn't the goal is to remove that trigger?  

Or we just live with blocking?

People, here is what I did to get this to stop. It seems that is was caused by one of my Chrome extensions, which one I am not sure but I went into the Chrome extensions setup area and removed almost all (had crazy ones I do not remember installing) anyway now that I removed these I restarted Chrome and all seems well. Hope this helps someone else, I actually got the idea from the Mozilla FireFox site that was having the same problem (I only had the issue on Chrome but when you are searching for a solution you have to try all sources)

@Allred can you uninstall your Google Chrome Flash Player extension and see if that helps?

@brookschristopher can you uninstall your Google Chrome FBDown Video Downloader extension and see if that helps? Also, disable your Firefox extension one by one. I'm sure one of them is causing your issue. 

Also, are both of you getting these pop-ups when you use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox?

Disable your Firefox extensions one by one and see if the pop-ups stops. The last one you disabled before it stops will be the culprit.
