Malware Scanning Over PUPs

Recommended Posts

Hi, I had a PUP scare yesterday with a PUP.BrowserHistoryStealer (Malwarebytes caught it) and I've been really freaking out about it. I've been using Malwarebytes to continue scan and I notice it will scan over some other PUPs like PUP.Optional.Crossrider and Adware.Crossrider and I'm not sure what this means...can you please help me? I've changed my passwords on another computer, but I'm still afraid that my information has been stolen...

PUP.BrowserHistoryStealer is a group of several apps from the App Store that have been documented to have been collecting your browser history. Your browser history only includes websites you have visited recently, not passwords or anything else like that.

Note that the names of things that you see during a scan are things Malwarebytes is looking for, not things it has detected. If something is detected, you will be alerted.
