Jump to content blocking email content Windows


Recommended Posts

After upgrading to Home Premium, I get the "Website Blocked due to Riskware" popup on every email that I open (Yahoo Mail).  This included the email confirm message from malwarebytes when I joined this forum today.  Also, there are no images within any of the email bodies once opened.  Attached are files gathered from your support tool.  thank you.

Both my wife and I are getting the same thing.  Me - Windows 10 Pro; Wife - Windows 10 Home.  Both running Yahoo Mail Pro.  Happens with both Chrome and Edge as browser engine.  I noted that the IP address changes with almost every pop-up from Malwarebytes.  Have scanned with Defender (complete scan) and Defender Offline, run Spywareblaster, and scanned again with Malwarebytes.  Odd that it identifies the threat on "outgoing" when I am not sending any email.  Perhaps it's a hack attack against Yahoo since it appears tied to them, not the computer or engine...?

I have this same issue with Malwarebytes 3.4.5 saying that every yahoo email is riskware. No images will show and Malwarebytes is blocking. I am using the free Yahoo mail. I have attached the output from 1 of the logs.

What is really odd is that I have 2 yahoo accounts and only 1 is affected. Also, I tried the affected yahoo account using Microsoft Edge but it happened there as well. I hope this is resolved soon.

Hi Stuman66,

Understand.  I did the same in creating a new account.  


I ran Yahoo on Firefox, and it still happened.  It appears to be inconsistent--other than it's a real pain!

Thanks Devin for getting on it.

I am having the same issue today which started this afternoon all of a sudden. Everything was fine in the morning.

I am on Windows 10 using the regular free Yahoo mail with Firefox.

I originally wrote this in another post about AdwCleaner, but I decided to move it here because I didn't realize it was happening to so many people.

Both Malwarebytes Premium and AdwCleaner are not picking up anything right now, however, when I ran an updated version of AdwCleaner earlier, it picked up two PUPs which it removed, but I am still getting those Riskware popup messages in my email. Seemed to happen all of a sudden today.
