We had BOClean, but it seems to be DITW. I have just had to use a FireFox addin to stop a really nasty malware (newtab.club). All this does is top it in FF, but the evil POC is still there on my PC. I wish I could sit happy with CIS++ looking after me.
Firstly I have no idea how to find the source of this. Do not even know where to start. If I knew that, I may not be here!
However, I used Zemano and it found and removed newtab.club. It is a paid programme if you want its full power and more than a time trial.
Junk Remover tool is BTW now discontinued, replaced by ADWCleaner, from the same organisation.
But then I faced a problem. newtab.club had gone from IE, but was still interfering with Firefox. Apparently the calls it made were still stored in FF’s profile. So it would still seem to be there, but FF was unable to search at all. I created a new profile, losing all my settings, passwords etc and it went away. I was offered less brutal methods, but IME with Windows one can spend hours trying finesse when I simple bludgeoning is best! 88)
If I do find the source of newtab.club, it will most likely be a freeware or W.H.Y. Finding one such source is surely not going to stop newtab.club infection is it? Can’r newtab.club be found by Comodo the same way a malware application finds it; the entity itself, rather than the source?
IIRC Comodo had a malware section that is now gone…
I installed Youtube downloader that installed pup on my virtualbox, i submited that pup file to comodo and a pup signature was created for it, next time i installed the Youtube downloader, the pup was quarantined during the install.
