I don't know if this the right group for this.
I was searching the internet yesterday and suddenly got the following error message Buffer Overflow Exploits the browser froze and I had to go to the task manager and close the browser. What is it and is serious. I have tried to search the internet and only get confused.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It's hard to say exaclty what it is but it could be either that your browser(s) and add-ons associated with it/them need updating, take a special look at Java and Adobe flash/Shockwave players but make sure everyhthing is updated, or hoping not, infection.
If the latter a quick sweep with Stinger and Malwarebytes Free should help. They are both linked in the last link in my signature and with Malwarebytes make sure you do NOT accept the trial, or else you'll get the PRO version.
I haven't had any recent episodes however when I went into my Security to to check the most recent results of my latest scheduled scan I found that the buffer over flow exploits were removed or quarantined. Since I didn't find them in my quarantine folder they were remoced.
I am going to try and mark this answer correct.
