Website Blocked Due to Trojan

Recommended Posts

I use Malware Bytes Premium 3.8.3.My computer runs Windows 10 Pro and uses Eset for AV. 

Beginning on 09/18/2019 I began receiving a "Website blocked" Type Outbound, Category Trojan to every 1.5 hours. I have attached the text notification from MalwareBytes. I have run AV scans in admin mode and Malwarebytes scans with everything coming back clean. comes back as registered to Amazon but the domain is listed as ws.bootstrapdevelopment.com. I am unsure of next steps and if I should be concerned.

It appears that the block is coming from a software called BSD Application Updater made by a company called Bootstrap Software Development.  Based on your description it sounds like it is from one of their applications running in the background and likely executing some kind of update check or telemetry check-in on a regular schedule.  I located the following information from their website which describes a couple of different ways to disable the application updater if you wish to:

Disabling the BSD Application Updater
There are a few different ways to turn off the application updater:

From either MediaWidget or VideoWizard, hold down the CONTROL and SHIFT keys while clicking on the "Check For Updates" menu item.  The user should receive a prompt explaining what is about to happen.
From the BSD Application Updater tray menu (right click the tray icon), hold down the CONTROL and SHIFT keys while clicking the "Check Now" menu item.  Prompts are the same as #1.
Manually removing the registry entry.  If the updater can not remove the entry itself (for example, if it were running under an account that did not have permissions to modify the HKLM key), then the entry can be removed by hand.  They should run RegEdit.exe and navigate to the 'HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\' key.  Under this key, they should see an entry named "BSDAppUpdater".  This entry should be deleted.
