Why Earningates Malware is not controlled by ESET


Recommended Posts

Whenever I open Mozilla firefox browser after restart; it opens an extra tab of earningates.com. I searched about and found that it is kind of malware. I wonder how come this is not monitored and controlled by ESET.

There is currently no content, 404 is returned. ESET is one out of 2 vendors to block it.

If it's opening automatically could it be an addon that is making it do that - Possibly try disabling each one to see if it makes any difference.

Hi,

Added to above, I suggest to look into the shorcut link address, time ago some Adware add a internet address to the browser launch command line.

Also if is clean, do  a reset of your affected browsers just in case (previous backup of any important data there).
