Hi,

Recently read https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/fake-paypal-site-spreads-nemty-ransomware/ which details info on a fake Paypal site and the Nemty Ransomware.

The article says "Fortunately, the malicious executable is detected by most popular antivirus products on the market. A scan on VirusTotal shows that it is detected by 36 out of 68 antivirus engine." however based on the Virus Total scan it looks like MB doesn't detect the ransomware.

Can you advise if this is the case or if MB does in fact detect Nemty?

Elaine

If the ransomware protection is on in Malwarebytes Premium, it will protect against ransom as it looks for suspicious activity and block it. Hence a real detection is not needed in this case.

Also your browser will firstly already warn you that this site is dangerous! So this also means that user behind the keyboard, totally has to be ignore this warning!! Doing so is  at your own risk. If you go ahead anyway and even click the download button, Malwarebytes will see suspicious activity and block this ransom. Also keep in mind that Virustotal is not always 100% accurate.

Further you posted in the wrong section, here you talk about problems and support with Malwarebytes.
