I am a bit scared, should i be?

Recommended Posts

So as i was editing something in pixlr,i finished and decided to run a scan using malewarebytes.After the scan was done there was a small pop-up saying " Learn more about Trojan" and that it blocked i.cubeupload.c0m and something else that i could not click because of my notifications from discord, and the pop-up went away,should i be scared? I really need some answers.

It was most likely just a web block and there shouldn't be anything to worry about, however you can check by opening Malwarebytes and going to the Reports tab and checking the most recent entry listed there and double-click on it to view the details.  Find out what the site was that was blocked and what process was being blocked.  If it was your web browser being blocked then you shouldn't have anything to be concerned about, but if not then definitely let us know and we'll help you to check your system for threats.

If the program making the connection was your web browser or a peer-to-peer program such as a Bittorrent client, Skype/an instant messaging program then you should be OK.  You can find out more about some of these situations in this support article, however if the program was some kind of document from the web or from an email message or was some kind of software crack, video game cheating tool or something else that might have come from a less than entirely legitimate source then it is possible that it has some kind of malicious functionality built into it and your system could be infected.  If you believe that to be the case please let us know and I'll provide instructions on how to seek free expert assistance in checking and cleaning your system of any threats.

Yes, that's your browser's process so it should be fine.  You can also verify the file and location by checking the Reports tab in Malwarebytes or by clicking on the bell shaped icon at the top right corner of the main Malwarebytes window and clicking on the most recent web block entry listed there and it will show you the details about the block, including the process that was blocked and where it's located as well as the specifics on the site it was trying to connect to.  As long as this block happened while you were browsing the web then it should be fine and just means that it blocked a bad website or malicious advertisement on a webpage you were viewing.  This is very common and is nothing to worry about.
