Hi,

Not sure if this is malware or not, but hopefully someone can point me in the right direction:

 

I get a warning from kaspersky av (latest version) when visiting some sites, for example amazon.co.uk. The message is about geo-um.btril.com and I get it in both chrome and safari.

 

A possibly unrelated issue is that I sometimes see my web browser access seems to stall when I come back to my mac in the evening after leaving it on all day. Quitting kaspersky and starting it back up seems to 'fix' this hiccup.

 

Attached are two examples of the warning message (seen on different days):

Screenshot%20of%20Google%20Chrome%20%280

 

 

Screenshot%20of%20Safari%20%2809-10-2016

 

I'm on sierra 10.12

 

TIA

Thanks I'll follow that thread and see what they come up with. I guess it appears to be benign.

Relatively speaking, that appears to be the case. Of course, some people freak out over being tracked by advertisers, so for them it might not seem benign. From what I have found, I personally would likely not stress too much over it.

Let's hope so! Interesting that I don't get the same error on my other mac, which has the same browsers and same version of kaspersky. Don't suppose that's a clue by any chance is it?
