Website blocked - Spyware: u(dot)cubeupload.com

Recommended Posts

Hi I just activated a Premium trial of Malwarebytes and yesterday while browsing on a forum I frequent, a number of times a MalwareBytes notification came up stating that a website had been automatically blocked by the name of cubeupload with the reason of spyware. Now, the part that has me concerned is that it listed this as originating from chrome.exe and was an outbound connection though.

Since yesterday though this hasn't happened again, and I've done a full custom scan on MalwareBytes and it's found nothing at all.

I attach the log from MalwareBytes of the first instance that this happened. If anyone can provide more info or advice to provide peace of mind or a resolution, that would be really great!!

Hi,

Your logs are still clean.

2 possible scenarios.

Reset Chrome...
Open Google Chrome, click on menu icon google-chrome-setting-icon.png or the 3 vertical dots located right side top of the google chrome.
 
Click "Settings" then "Show advanced settings" at the bottom of the screen.
 
Click "Reset and clean up" > "Restore settings to their original defaults"
 
Restart Chrome.
<<<>>>

If the problem persists and you Sync Chrome with other devices reset the Sync.

Read this article and proceed.

Thank you, hopefully that helps.

I think I may have discovered the reason for the pop ups also; think it's coming from certain images that may be hosted on pages of forums that I frequent. So seems that Malware Bytes is doing it's job well!
