    Until Windows 8 came along and spoilt it by Windows Defender determining that a certain user-editable file (if modified by the user) was being modified by malware, and reset the file to default settings, using a modified file would send any recognised unwanted malware IP addresses to the localhost loopback address at 127.0.0.0, or at 10.0.0.0.
    Maintained by the folks at
    Let me google that for you
    the database contains names and IP addresses of many of the malware sources that disfigure, dishonestly misdirect, and misinform on pages at software download sites, news media pages and sites that are often mostly harmless, but that monetarize with gaudy panels that often lead to dishonest and malicious downloads.

    Fortunately. it seems that Windows 10 allows user modification of this file, without the reversion found in Windows 8, so it works again.

    If you read the article, these malware use various exploits to install the malware load and the exploit is blocked by Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit and the free version protects most browsers and java. I run it along with Malwarebytes Pro.

    You are assuming everyone has Malwarebytes Ante-Exploit installed,
    And your suggestion I did not read the article.....it would be daft to post a thread without reading it.
    Too many assumptions.

    I was not assuming anything. I quoted your post for the information and link for the article. After reading all the other posts I was letting others know that MBAM Anti-Exploit will protect them for getting this malware which no one else seems to mention including you.

    Reading this thread I'm not sure I want to try it again at this time. Office 365 - Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta - Malwarebytes Forums . I have Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, NoScript, Eset Smart Security and my backup images so I don't mind waiting.
