Hey Guys,

I just want to report a website that Malwarebytes blocked using Firefox when I was going on Yahoo. Below are some details from the Malwarebytes log. I also attached the actual log from Malwarebytes below. This happened when I temporarily disabled AdBlock in order to test out another browser extension for my email account.

I also ran adwcleaner and also Rogue Killer, but they didn't find anything, so I'm assuming everything is ok and Malwarebytes is just doing it's thing. Has anyone else gotten this pop-up?

Greetings,

As long as your scans come up clean then you should be OK, however I thought it pertinent to point you to this information as it does indicate that this may be the result of a PUP/adware extension/plugin in your web browser.  If you wish to make absolutely certain that you're system is clean then please follow the instructions in this topic and then create a new topic in the malware removal area including the requested logs and information by clicking here and one of our malware removal specialists will assist you as soon as one becomes available.  They should be able to check your system and verify that there are no threats or PUPs present, and if there are any, aid you in removing them for good.

If there is anything else we might assist you with please don't hesitate to let us know.

Thanks

As a matter of fact, I actually did remove two PUPs using adwcleaner before this happened as a result of downloading an extension for my Firefox browser which is an an ad blocker for my Yahoo mail account. I should tell the developer about this, but I'm only assuming it was from this. There were two entries in my registry keys that adwcleaner found. The name of the extension is called Yahoo Mail Hide Ad Panel. The log from adwcleaner  is attached. The adware was removed.

AdwCleaner[C21].txt

OK, yeah, it's possible that the PUP/adware got bundled with the hide panel extension as bundling is a common way for PUPs to get onto systems these days.

If the detections/blocks do persist and Malwarebytes and ADWCleaner don't detect anything else in their scans then you can either try resetting your extensions in your browser or you can follow the instructions I provided above for posting in the malware removal area and they'll track down any remaining traces and guide you in eliminating them.
