Newsmode.me not detected by eset

Recommended Posts


I have noticed that my computer had a virus. for what i was able to discover, it's called newsmode.me
Eset didn't show any notifications. 

I was only capable to delete it with this tutorial via the pc console

Pls update for a pop up blocker for this extension

Malwaretips.com has a removal guide on it dated 8/19: https://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-newsmode-me/ . So its is far from being a recent event.

It's adware. The problem is adware can serve up malicious ones. The best way to prevent crud like this is using a good ad blocker in your browser.

What I am curious about is VT shows an Eset detection as "suspicious." Is this a new detection? If not, Eset should have thrown an alert upon attempted access to this domain. Was the alert ignored?

It's been blocked just recently. However, the OP seems to have come here to propagate his cleaner; some links and stuff were removed from his post and profile.
