ANSWERED Outgoing MBAM Warning

Recommended Posts

Just recently MBAM identifies and blocks site outgoing due to Trojan. I get this message in Chrome & Edge. It happens when trying to connect to the Washington Post crosswords.

It is identified in Chrome and is: Cdn1.amuselabs.com, in Google program file (X64). But when I do a MBAM Scan, it finds nothing. I uninstalled Chrome, reinstalled, but get the same thing.  Site blocked due to a trojan.       https://www.washingtonpost.com/crossword-puzzles/daily/?utm_term=.26dee4cc948f

I just checked, and the video embedded in the center of the page is what's being blocked.  It is likely that the site it is being hosted on is also known for being used by a family of Trojans, which is why Malwarebytes blocks it.  The reason issues like this occur is due to the fact that a single server/IP address can be leased by the hosting provider that owns it to multiple websites/customers, meaning the video embedded in that page may be perfectly safe, some other content also hosted on the same server is not safe, so Malwarebytes blocks it.

That said, you may also report this as a possible false positive if you would like the Malwarebytes Research team to re-check the website to verify that the malicious content is still present and that the block is still necessary, as it is possible that the bad guys have moved on to different servers as they often do (usually because security vendors like Malwarebytes have been blocking them).  If you wish to report it for review by the Research team, please review the information in this topic as well as this topic and then create a new topic to report the site in the Website Blocking false positives area by clicking here and a member of the Malwarebytes Research team will review the site and respond with their verdict on the current status of the website being blocked, and will unblock it if it turns out that the site is now safe and the malicious content is no longer present.

I hope this helps clear things up, and if there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.

This was a FP and the block has been removed. Please update Malwarebytes and you should no longer have an issue on the site

Thank you
