screensrc.com blocked for Trojan

Recommended Posts

Today Malwarebytes began blocking this site as a Trojan. Since the .exe file seems to be embedded in Chrome I'm not sure how to address this problem. I searched to see if I could find any reports of problem with screensrc.com. According to Google, McAfee, and Bitdefender the site is safe. Norton stated the site had not been tested. As a final step I ran a Malwarebytes scan and nothing was detected.

Right now it's merely a nuisance to have to close the warning pop-up. I don't want to mark it for exclusion and potentially have to deal with a bigger problem later.  Also, I noticed several other posts in this forum about other sites incorrectly blocked for the same problem.  Was there a recent Malwarebytes update causing this common problem?  Please advise how to proceed.

Sorry, I'm no computer expert. Can you tell me how to get rid of that script?  I appreciate the warning but the Malwarebyte pop-up is really annoying.

It looks like some sort of adware script. If your browser is just automatically trying to connect to that domain, you might want to try running AdwCleaner on your system to see if that helps. We offer help on our forums here as well.

Hope this helps

Ran AwdCleaner but still getting the Malwarebytes warning. I'll try the other forum you suggested.

Thanks for your help!
