Does anyone else have clients on ESET and after the Chrome updates today are getting Mindspark PUP notifications to clean? I can't wait to receive 300 calls about this... All of these clients are behind business-class firewalls with up-to-date licenses and ESET scans frequently. Object is named: JS/Mindspark.E

 

I'm wondering if this is something included with Google Chrome updates or new ESET definitions that are more strict than usual.

 

Thanks if anyone has something similar. Gathering information as we speak if we should consider this a network-wide infection or something to do with the latest Chrome patch/ESET definitions.

Just landed for us too. Seems to be a new Mindspark variant? Searches for info on it show discussions on Mindspark.D, and this is flagging as Mindspark.E.

It appears to be associated with multiple different Chrome extensions so I assume it's an ad rotator javascript or some other partially outsourced garbage.
