Why do I keep getting a "eth0.me" warning

Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes has recently been popping up a threat warning pertaining to eth0.me.  An outgoing Malicious Website threat at that!   From what little experience I have eth0.me appears to be the first ethernet device on my system.  From a Windows .NET file??  My other two licensed Malwarebyte protected devices on the same home network never display this threat... ever.  Yet the one machine (below) that I'm on the most often displays the threat whenever I first log on or wake the machine from sleep mode.  Is this a false positive warning?  A real outgoing threat?  ...from my own machine?  Be gentle please, I'm not very network-tech savvy.  Thank you.

System specs if required: Win 10 (update current), Asrock B550M-Pro4, Ryzen 5 5600X, 16GB DDR4, 1 x SSD, 1 x optical drive

Below is the Malwarebytes' info on the threat from earlier today:

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes for Windows Help forum.

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following:

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance

    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.

I had shown indicators that the web site;  eth0.me  is malicious in nature.  It is a Domain name and not the name of an Ethernet Port on a PC.

Since %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\jsc.exe (Microsoft's JScript Compiler) is reaching out to this web site with malicious indicators, it may be construed that your PC might be compromised by some malware that is not presently detected by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM).  With that possibility, it would be a good idea to have your PC checked out by a Forum Helper.  Just in case your PC is compromised.

This machine is the only one that I chose to have MB do rootkit scans every time.  Does that enter into the picture any?

This is a web block not a file block.

I have a backup from before this started.  (1) What if I simply restored this backup?

You can start there if you do not want assistance in locating and fixing the potential issue.
