Windows Defender Security Center popup

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi guys,

A couple months ago I reported having issues with firefox redirecting to malware websites. I was able to remove the issue, however recently when I was browsing ign.com I got a notification in the corner of my screen saying "viruses detected!" and it had the Google chrome logo on it. I clicked on it and I was redirected to the webpage described in this article:

 

https://www.pcrisk.com/removal-guides/12537-windows-defender-security-center-pop-up-scam

 

Since this has happened, Malwarebytes has been blocking "Malvertising" sites with the domain "7rjln8orgh.com" and the IP Address 198.134.112.244.

I've tried running a system scan. However upon finishing the scan claims that programs I've had for a long time are Malware. I don't know what I should do.

Let's try resetting Firefox

 

 

Firefox
Click on Help / Troubleshooting Information then click on the Refresh Firefox button.

 

Restart your computer now and make sure there are no longer any redirects or other browser issues and let me know the results

Thanks

Ron

Hi Ron, I have reset Firefox and so far I don't recall seeing any notable issues. I'll update this thread if the issue still persists. Although part of me doubts that this issue was solved so easily. Thank you for your help.

Thanks @Aubiter

In many cases, that's all it is. I would recommend an Ad Blocker though to help prevent this type of issue.
