EternalBlue - avast notification spam
« on: September 09, 2017, 09:21:18 AM »


is this gonna be a thing?
 
i have installed security update for win7 that fixes EternalBlue vulnerability, and i still get these annoying announcements.

is there any possibility to hide only this particular announcement? because it get sent to me continually and from different IP adresses so i cant really blacklist them

You should disable the file sharing on your computer and block the incoming traffic on port 445.

The next possibility is use the router and block the traffic there.

Unfortunately, the EthernalBlue infections are still spread over the world and every computer with the open port 445 connected to the internet is getting the packets from them. Even if they are patched.
