....Against the Local Moxie browser hijacker/re-direct yesterday. Not sure how my device contracted this malware, possibly through using a well-known tv streaming service 24 hours prior. Other than that, I have been practising safe surfing habits as far as I know and have not opened any spam emails/attachments. Numerous pop-ups ensued, including porno webcams and scareware/ransomware from a fake tech support outfit which locked my device briefly.
What I thought was unusual is that subsequent scans with Zemana, MWB AntiMalware and HitmanPro did not detect the infection once acquired, even after trying to terminate the activities of the malware process itself by using Rkill prior to scanning (which detected nothing suspicious anyway).
Dealt with the problem in the end by resetting my notebook, managing to save my files although losing many useful programs.
So yeah.....just reporting this issue to those who might be interested. Especially disappointed with MWB Anti-Exploit in not being able to prevent the infection.
That is all.
