Dangerous URL vdpro.org [Closed]


Go to solution Solved by Flood and Flood's wife,

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone from Italy! Since some days my KIS 2020 detects this dangerous URL as you can see on the screenshot. I ran complete scan on my system but KIS doesn't find out anything. It looks like my system is clean. Actually I don't understand if I have some virus, malware, etc or not. Can someone help me to understand it and if yes how to fix it? Thank you very much. Alessandro

Hello FLOOD. Thank you very much, These are my extensions. Last one I installed is Kaspersky Protect Manager. I have never installed any theme. I hope Lab can give us an answer. Thank you.

Please export Detailed Reports, All Events, 30days, save as a .txt file & upload to your post using the Upload icon. -- Then please do the following: 1⃣ Create a System Restore Point. 2⃣ Go to: C:\Windows\Temp - delete everything, there will be several files/folders requesting "Admin" permission, select "yes" or "ok', &, there will be several files/folders "in use", select skip. 3⃣ Go to: C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Local\Temp - delete everything. 4⃣ Check Google Shortcut (on Desktop), right-click the shortcut, select Properties, Target, there should be no text after chrome.exe.

Hello alessandroleoni, From: Kaspersky AntiVirus Lab, Sent: Wednesday, 9 October 2019 00:57, Subject: [Malicious link] Detection is correct. This domain is used by browser extensions for "cookie stuffing". Best regards, VG, Malware Analyst "Cookie stuffing", unscrupulous marketing technique that is not accepted, nor supported by most reputable affiliate networks. Spammers drop cookies in scripts, pop-ups, toolbars, and images. The cookies are stored in the visitors’ computers; when they visit a site that pays for advertising, the spammer receives a fee. Essentially, it's an act of fraud that lets people earn illegitimate commissions without doing any honest work. ---- Thank you:pray_tone3:

Hi alessandroleoni In addition to what FLOOD indicated in the post located above this [post,
  1. Is kaspersky still detecting the said URL?
  2. Were you able to perform the instructions provided by FLOOD?
If the issue is still there, you can try these steps below:
  1. Clear the cache in your browsers: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/2392709?hl=en&co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&oco=1
If clearing the cache of the browser doesn't help, the last this thing the you can try to do is to reset your google chrome browser (This is what I personally do most of the time.) https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/3296214?hl=en * Click Chrome Menu button click Setting from drop down men * In search box, type "Reset and cleanup *Click on "Restore settings to their original defaults" * Click on "Reset settings" (Please note that this will reset your startup page, new tab page and search engine and pinned tabs. It will also disable all extensions and clear temporary data like cookies. Your bookmarks, history and saved passwords will not be cleared.) Let us know if these steps help. Many thanks!

FLOOD, on KIS Privacy Cleaner link which you gave me, I found these steps: To run the Privacy Cleaner Wizard:
  1. Open the main application window.
  2. In the lower part of the main window, click the More Tools button.
  3. The Tools window opens.
  4. Go to the Clean and optimize section.
  5. Click the Privacy Cleaner link to run the Privacy Cleaner Wizard.
Here below there's a screenshot of the fourth step but I don't find any Privacy Cleaner link as in fifth step. Can you help me even if it's in Italian? Thank you.

Hello alessandroleoni,
  1. Re the reports, they only go back to 28/9/19, did you select 30 days?
  2. If you selected 7days, please redo reports before cleanup, select 30 days, save as a text file & upload to cloud, pm the link to me please?
  3. Cleanup - do 1, 2 & 3
  1. Red circled ? = Help, selecting a question make in any Kaspersky software opens a Help document specific to the window of the app.
