-Website Data-
Category: Trojan
Domain: v.gd
IP Address:
Port: 443
Type: Outbound
File: C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe


Hostname: hxxps://v.gd


Context: I had used the hxxps://v.gd url shortener on my Mac (without malwarebytes) and really liked it since it provides preview pages by default, so you can view the whole redirect URL before following it. I tried reaching hxxps://v.gd on my Windows 10 machine (running malwarebytes premium w/ Real-Time Web Protection turned ON. When I did, Chrome said there was an SSL issue with connecting, and malwarebytes immediately threw up a taskbar notification saying the site was blocked due to risk of trojans. I tried reading around the forum for this IP and did not see it reported, although I have seen other URL shorteners blocked in the past, so I am guessing this is a similar case. Interestingly, the sister site by the same creators, hxxps://is.gd , does NOT seem to be blocked by malwarebytes.
