'MalwareAlarm' Site Bugs BOClean


I’ve been using BOClean along with the AV and Firewall for a while now-never encountered too many problems. However, recently, while browsing, the MalwareAlarm (info on that here.) site attacked me. Within a few seconds, BOClean had encountered an error and shutdown… I was surprised… Almost immediately, I went to go start BOClean up again, but encountered an error: BOCLEAN DATABASE IS CORRUPTED

Edit: Moved image to bottom.

At first when I ran the updater, errors popped up saying something about administrator, etc, etc…
So I terminated the BOClean process, ran AdAware (since there’s no Comodo AntiSpyware :P) and ran the updater again. This time it worked, and now I can run BOClean again. The only reason I’m posting this is because I fixed the problem while I was posting for help-and perhaps it can help you shape the program better :smiley:

And if there’s any thing I should do to further clean my system, let me know!

Hi Posmo,
Welcome to the Comodo BOClean forum.
Can you give us a little more information?
Your OS and any other active security applications would be a good start.
Thank you!

Just had a look at this site(malware alarm). According to Mcafee SA this is a site to stay away from. Hope this advises others. Stuart

Thanks :slight_smile:

Are you running Spybots TeaTimer?

There’s something very weird about MalwareAlarm, because I’m getting strange MalwareAlarm-branded popups while running OS X and Firefox, and I’ve seen this on two different Macs so far. Browsing to this page on Salon: I got one of the popups, and I really doubt one of their advertisers initiated it. Did they somehow port the thing to OS X?

I think the best thing to do for windows users is to block the maleware alarm site in the host file.

Make sure you run a competant antispyware I suggest:

1: Spysweeper
2: SPyware Doctor
3: Counterspy V2

Spyware Blaster is also a great product i think it only updates 1 or 2 times a month but it works great :slight_smile:

Yes it does. If you want a more updated immunization protection i would go with spybot search and destory: 1.5’s immunization… Its vastly improved from 1.4
