Website blocked due to Trojan: areasrc.net - or

Since March 29 I have been seeing blocked websites every time I do a Google searches.  There appears to be just two IP addresses, but the hostname is always areasrc.net. 

I have no idea whether this is a false positive or something real, in which case I have no idea what is causing them. 

I note that the executable {6D809377-6AF0-444B-8957-A3773F02200E}_Malwarebytes_Anti-Malware_mbam_exe appears in the folder ...AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Search_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\AppIconCache\100\ with a timestamp of 29/3/2021 10:32AM although the first report in my History shows a timestamp of 9:13 AM.

The domain (areasrc.net) is blocked due to potentially malicious JS file:



VirusTotal detection:



We wouldn't be able to remove the block until this file is deleted.

Thank you for your understanding!
