Facebook Malware when opening create advert photos

  Govan1x 14:57 27 May 2017

Ok having problems opening create advert photos just under trending. Getting warnings from W/defender and Eset and have to reset Computer.

I have tried Internet Explorer and Edge but had the same problem with Both.

Downloaded Chrome and still get the same problem.

Has anyone that uses a laptop or Desktop get the same problems.

Using W10 and have Eset,Malwarebytes and Emsisoft.

Ok found this which tells us what to expect.The problem is. JS:Trojan,Cryxos.216 E

Now it seems that is what I picked up when opening those photos on Facebook. But not sure if I am the only one getting the problem.

And this from my computer.

ID Object C:\Users\bill\AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC#!001\MicrosoftEdge\Cache\W04TDUSY\index1.htm JS:Trojan.Cryxos.261 (B)

Now I have used Edge.I/E and Chrome and I get the same problem. Anyone know how to remove it from computer.

That was from Emsisoft Quarantine.

There's this about it. I'm assuming you've deleted the 'Quarantine' list in Emsisoft then rebooted. If the bug is still there try Adw.

Thanks rdave13 I thought that you had cracked it. Did what you said and rebooted. Tried connecting to one of the pictures in Facebook again.

This time Eset deleted the problem and not Emsisoft. Tried doing what you said again but this time with Eset but never made any difference.

So still not sure if the problem is with my computer or with Facebook.

That is a legit trojan but might be picked up by your security softwares as they might conflict, i.e. scanning each other and creating a false positive. Too many 'live' scanners can be as bad as not having any. Send me the link and I'll log in to connect to the photos if I can. No expert with Facebook, just use their messenger in winter when the local lads, where I work, can show how bad the snow is.

On facebook page just under friends at the top, you have Trending and underneath trending you have got create advert. There is usually a couple of pictures or photos on there.

It is clicking them to open them is when I get the problems. I think they will only be seen if using a laptop or desktop.

I will try again after I post this to see what happens.

I think I'm sad Govan1x ... just opened facebook, and have 81 notifications and one 'friend' request. Oops I clicked on something and farcebook closed. Hang on and will try again.

OK back on the home page. Clicking on the down arrow where the "?" icon is and will select "create adverts". Here goes again...

Meant to add this is the problem now with Eset. Emsisoft does not pick this one up.

Basically I only have family and a few friends on it. Always have the grand kids checking up on us to see how we are.And vice versa.
