iBryte Desktop

I've got something called iBryte Desktop in my system tray.  I'm not sure what it is or where it came from and I don't know what it does.  The best I've been abe to determine is that it was installed thru a Trojan.  It resists all efforts to stop it from starting or remove it.  I'm wondering how it got past my security suite?  Is it so new that Norton doesn't have a cure for it? 

Can anybody help/offer some insight?

Welcome,

Google isn't too impressed with it so I'm going to recommend that you download, install, update and run Malwarebytes free scanner found here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free it's Norton compatible so keep it around for when you want a second opinion again. You didn't mention which version of what Norton product you have running. I will assume that it is up to date and that you have run a full scan with it and rebooted.

Keep us in the loop

I'm running the Norton Security Suite that is provided to me by Comcast.

I have installed Malwarebytes and run a full scan.  It didn't find a thing.

Hi,

If NSS and MWB can't dig it out then I'd recommend one of these sites for some serious professional help.

Re: iBryte Desktop

As a further note, although a full scan by Malwarebytes didn't find anything, I have the program running in the background and periodically I get a popup message that it has blocked an OUTGOING contact to a potentially malicious website: 208.73.210.29

Okay, thanks, I'll check them out.

Still confused how this got past Norton Security in the first place.

Hi,

It is possible that the program itself isn't a 'threat' but what it does after it installs itself in your computer that causes problems. The warning about the outgoing activity is Norton trying to protect you.

Stay well and surf safe

Re: iBryte Desktop

This iBryte website:

hxxp://landing.ibryte.com/

Which is apparently bundling malware with downloads of free apps, that can be downloaded from their own, non-malware bundled sites - would wonder if they have permission tfor any of this. During the install of these free apps iBryte has prechecked installs of these, though provides a Decline button option:

Ask Toolbar
Facemoods Toolbar
PageRage
Buzzdock
DropDowndeals
SanitySwitch
Babylon Toolbar

Also installs Yontoo Layers adware, and without opting out changes your start page to search.bablyon.com. I assume anything associated with iBryte results in the same installs.
