MalwareByte and Compatible extensions

Recommended Posts

MalwareByte has detect a Malware (see Nom et Date.jpg file) and ( DirCoupable.jpg file) for the directory. MalwareByte respond as expected by putting it in Quarantaine. Wich is perfect and why of MalwareByte gives me a good sens of security. Doing so the menace seem so harmfull that it looks like MalwareByte shootdown my internet connection and had to reboot the computer, the modem, and the router.

My question. Wich FF67.0.2 extension caused this action and is it a non-compatible extension with MalwareByte. My goal is to remove the proper extension?

Thank you for your help

Hello @Mike43 and :welcome:

I'm not sure if we can drill down to the exact extension but I'll try. Please post back the actual scan log in text format so that I can review it.

Also, please note that your version of Firefox is out of date.

Thank you

Ron

Thanks @adas

@Mike43 please go ahead and remove that extension. Then run a new scan with Malwarebytes and ensure the computer is clean.

Assuming there is nothing wrong with that extension you can then go ahead and reinstall it.

Let me know if that corrects the issue.

You're quite welcome @Mike43

I'll go ahead and leave you with some further information to help keep your computer clean going forward.

 

Let's get real. If you're not backing up your data and you're still using Google Chrome then you're just not serious about Privacy, Safety, and protecting your data. Malwarebytes is a fantastic program but you still need to back up your data and you still need to block scripts and Ads in your browser. 
If you're still using Google Chrome I would highly suggest you consider using Firefox instead. For more advanced users you might consider installing NoScript as well (it does have a higher learning curve though)
