Anydesk Malware?

Recommended Posts

One of my Emsisoft customers has been infected by malware (adware) that seems to be related to a fake version of Anydesk. Emsisoft does not detect it.  The symptoms are that the Edge browser (Chromium) is displaying false warnings (showing 6 pages open in  Task Manager.)  Edge was the only browser installed at the time of the infection.  However, when I installed Chrome, it also shows 6 pages open.  I have reset Edge and Chrome but no joy.  In Control panel, Anydesk showed as installed.  I removed it but again, no joy.  I have tried Malware bytes, Hitman Pro and a couple adware removers with no luck.

Has anyone seen this before?  Any suggestions welcome.

For help having this analysed/fixed you'd be better to post in sub-forum: https://support.emsisoft.com/forum/6-help-my-pc-is-infected/  Be sure to collect the information, described in one of the 'pinned' posts (at the top of that sub-forum) that the analyst will need to see.


This sub-forum is normally used for more general discussions.
