For the last several days McAfee has blocked the following IP address 52.216.241.14 as being suspicious. When I Google searched this IP address FF lit up with a red warning message. What's up with this address? Also, is there a better forum to get more information about this address? Thanks

Hello! Plz help me out with this issu that's been haunting me for two years. I know something is wrong but after I've been searching every where I still don't know how I can prove someone (who I know) is hacking my accounts. And still i've no clue what all these means. When ever i try to report an issu no matter which web browser I use, all of a sudden the internet lose connection. Either im on my cellphone network, wifi at home or wifi at the library. No matter how many times I change privacy settings or delete certificates it always comes back. I can't even update windows or able to download prog. At first I bought Macafee and noticed the issu's still remaining, a few months later I bought MalwareBytes it worked first 30 minutes then back again as it was. I couldn't even access my cloud account on malwarebytes. Now the prob still remains and I'm not even able to access my G-account. I've changed password a hundred times everywhere.

Without my intention Relosoun.com starts Firefox browser. When using the Firefox regularly (every 10-15 minutes) relosoun.com tryies to open the new tab being blocked by antivirus Avast. All efforts including reinstalling Firefox, using CC cleaner, Malwarebytes etc do not help. On other gadgets Relosoun.com doesn't appear in Firefox in the same account.

Hi all

For security reasons, all new FF distributions are tested. When checking the distribution kit version 68.5.0esr (exe for x86 and x64) - the antivirus software "VirusTotal" detected Trojan.Inject.bcbj. FortiSandbox also scolded the distribution on x86 - saying that it deleted the file "% programfiles (x86)% \ google \ update \ 1.3.33.17 \ googlecrachhandler.exe" - its installation is undesirable in the ESR version.

The new firefox should have some malware protection by default? I thought I can use it without blocking addons, maybe a mistake?

On searching the web by google I came on a webpage, where another page suddenly opened and I could not leave with back button. Just another fake page opened.

I scanned the pages here (others are in the comment): https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/518ffb491d9ae673e803a930d05aae5bd0db9536a93197bfb2a874de76009af2

Could there be some infection? What can I do now to be save?

I deleted cache inside firefox and after that a scan with clamscan. It could not find anything on my device.

Thank you

I have tried the Skip Redirect Add-On. That worked great-for a day. The ampugi redirects to a number of other named sites. Then an Authentication Required box pops up and wants me to enter info. This locks FF. I have to restart my PC. I've ran the Malicious software removing tool, AdwCleaner and AVG. It even happens with Google Chrome.

Hey, I have this weird problem that when ever I log into my sync account and sync firefox I get malware. Opening new window (CTRL+N) puts me into here: http://securedsearch.lavasoft.com/?pr=vmn&id=webcompa&ent=lvs__webcompa__1_0__ya__ch_WCYID10420_200404__yrff

My homepage is set to duckduckgo and when i open new tab, it works properly.

I deleted all traces of firefox and reinstalled and if i dont log into sync, the malware does not appear (so it's not in my system, it comes with sync)

Any help where can i go to trace down how it comes and how to get rid of it?

Extensions I have installed: Clockwork, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, Lastpass, PKCS11 loader, Token Signing, Vue.js Devtools, Wappalyzer

Best regards, Siim.

Out of the blue I received a message stating I was being attacked on my Mac by software that maybe Ransomware. I was asked to close and delete the files.

I run Mac Os 10.14.6 and have never had any previous problems. After quarantining these files I quit Firefox and then could not open it. I therefore deleted the .app and reinstalled Firefox 75. I can only start up Firefox by using the Terminal Command window using the Profile manager. I created a new profile but cannot see my old profile within the Profile Manager. I can find the old profile under Profile's in Application Support/Users. So despite having a new default set created, I still cannot get the Firefox.app to open by clicking on it. I have now deleted the old profile and still cannot open the Firefox app from the dock or applications folder.

help please!

I could never find out why I got the message "Ransomware may be trying to access my computer", except two files have appeared in my bin; Edgar Poe Murder and Righteous Games.

Any help appreciated.

There is a folder called 'Amozilla' containing a folder called 'AFirefox' under Users/_____/AppData/Roaming, in addition to the regular Mozilla folder. The Amozilla files are all from 2018 - no recent use. Are these legitimate? Safe to delete?

The regular Mozilla folder contains two Firefox profile folders: one with recent files, the other all from 2018. Safe to delete the defunct profile folder? (I am the only user of this computer.)

Thanks.

I don't know how is possible but this program is impossible to delete, so when I wont to search for something, the browser first uses Google as the default then it redirects me to yahoo with this safe finder. Ad if I want to search the page of Google (google.it in my case) the browser blocks the connection and says: "Connection broken: potential security risk".

I don't know what to do. The strange thing is that the problem is just on the main browser, if I change with chrome the same is there!
