Two Malicious Files Detected On SpamCop.net


Recommended Posts

This is not a feature request, but a request to see these scan results of SpamCop.net.

Scroll down to see the result here:

I did that scan because I first got a warning from Malwarebytes Browser Guard when accessing the SpamCop website. Supposedly a Trojan was detected by the latter.

Now that is funny.  They are calling the list of IP spammy ranges as trojans?

Stopped using it because of to many false positives for me.
Might be ok for you. Sometimes pays to try a different one?

I used the same Scanner.PCRisk again which uses Quttera, and now it reports "Clean." (Wonder if someone had it cleaned or reported it as a false positive.)

The Malwarebytes Browser Guard is free, and I rather be safe than sorry. If it would flag a false positive sometimes among the great majority of reall detections, so be it. Then one can always double check and report it to them if it was indeed a false positive..

On the AV-Comparatives site they report 7 false positives were found testing Malwarebytes Premium (a full protection suit now, no longer just a scanner) which is not much, and some other well known brands had more (and some had less)

"False Alarm Test" https://www.av-comparatives.org/tests/false-alarm-test-march-2022/

Also Malwarebytes Browser Guard does no longer give that Trojan warning for SpanCop.net

Probably react to complaints and fix many problems.

Right now I use spyhunter but only their free version.
Had problems with signing up they started charging multiple times',
even now their sign in price, it is made a yearly charge at a much higher price than you signed up for.
So cancel any forced subscription straight away, usually get offered a much better deal when due.
