Note for BarryK (and maybe others), in case it helps:

Apparently the latest chromium browser (oct 2019) has had a virus currently called 'parasite' created and released for it.


Can you supply the link about this virus please? I googled but can't find it anywhere.

wiak


Try something other than google then, I got 23 responses from duckduckgo and others from other search engines, since chrome/chromium is a google product .....



Something is weird here.

It doesn't matter what search engine is used (Google, DuckDuckGo, Startpage, Bing, etc) there are no search returns, let alone 23 of them as scsijon notes, for anything related to an Oct 2019 Chromium release and a virus currently called "parasite" afflicting it.

Scsijon, however you know about this 'parasite' thing, can you please provide a direct search result link? So that I can then forward it along to the Chromium-dev team to make them aware of this evidently critical problem?! No one there knows anything about what you're talking about.

Thank you.

Oh yes there are. You need to polish your searching skills. Got to incorporate " Computer Virus" and " Chromium", inter alia, into your search criteria otherwise you get the more obvious medical answers & co.

@Sage: Did you read the stuff you found? Is there anything there to support scsijon's report?

If so, provide a specific link.

Rcrsn51,

He can't.

Because there doesn't seem to be any.

No links exist, but the mysterious 'parasite' Chromium killer is real.

Yes, I did - at least half a dozen. Seasoned db users shouldn't have any trouble locating them. But if you PM me, I'll send a personalised selection/assessment - tomorrow.

PostPosted: Mon 07 Oct 2019, 16:21    Post subject: A Chromium page  

To Barry,
Just wondered if this page on Chromium
is any help for info;

https://chromium.woolyss.com/#linux

Though no mention of EasyOS, but while rummaging around
the web, spotted a few comments on false positives.
Also have you tried running ClamAv?

This is probably a crunch-time immunity test situation
for your brain child.
Regards, R.

sorry folks,

i'm away from base for a day or two, helping to packup a 1920's artdeco chandelier that had a fall (all 0.9m dia and 3.6m tall of it) so it can go to be repaired. Three months work for the specialists, not me, i'm not that good (or have the equipment to do it all).

It's strange that others can't find this information, maybe there is some sort of blocking going on. I'll provide a few links when i'm back home if still needed. They wern't blaming chromium though, clearly stating that chromium was considered to be a opensource alpha of chrome (googles closed system browser), but it did seem to be a nasty set of reports and only one fix though.

I can't see why, so have removed 2.1.5. I have no idea what has changed since 2.1.3 that could have caused this. Will work on it, hopefully the next release isn't too far away.


Barry, do you have a standalone libnss/libnspr installed, or do you depend on seamonkey to provide these two? If it is the latter, you can probably solve the problem by installing standalone libnss/libnspr. I have read it somewhere (but cannot find the reference again now) that SM 2.49.5 comes with updated libnss/libnspr which probably contains API-breaking changes for anything other than itself. I have just a report from FD64 thread where jake29 reported that he updated SM to 2.49.5 and it breaks his chrome (thanks jake29!); and that installing libnspr/libnss fixes it.

If you already are using standalone libnss/libnspr - well then please ignore this post Wink

Thanks, Jamesbond!

Just now fooled around in one of my laptop Fatdog installs, and bingo.

As for the conspiracy-mystery 'parasite' malware theory, especially that the Chromium-Dev Team (or even Google) was suppressing search results about it, as we say to the kids: puff goes the magic dragon.

Barry, hope you put 2.1.5 back up soon. The Chromium thing is easy for us to fix (thanks to JamesB). Want to try some new things with 2.1.5! Wink Sometimes I still can't believe how far EasyOS has come over the past year.

In a rush again... just popping into the forum to announce Pyro 1.2.5 released:

http://bkhome.org/news/201910/easyos-pyro-series-version-125-released.html

Thanks for the feedback about the Chromium SSL problem. I will get onto that tomorrow and the next Buster should be released soon thereafter.

Note, 1.2.5 has SM 2.49.5, but compiled to use system nss/nspr.

What about this:

https://www.pandasecurity.com/mediacenter/malware/chromium-virus/

I'm running Chromium right now, in a container, Pyro 1.2.5. What rufwoof suggested, about a fresh start each time -- it might be a good idea to be able to take a snapshot of the container, then specify every time that the chromium container is started in the future, it reverts to that snapshot.
Yeah, might implement that.

That link does NOT describe a virus named "parasite" that attacks your Chromium install.

It describes an altered version of Chromium that is installed in your system by some malware.

I am running Easy Pyro 1.2.5 on one of my laptops, it has SM 2.49.5 and Chromium works fine.

Buster 2.1.3 also has SM 2.49.5 I think, but I compiled these to use the system nss and nspr.

For Buster 2.1.5, I used the official SM binary. Reason for this was my compile asked if want to remember password, when one is entered, and I answer "never for this site", but then it asks again next time. Whereas, the official binary works correctly.

Anyway, the official binary is compiled with it's own nss/nspr libs, and the 'pinstall.sh' script in the PET, sees this and creates symlinks to them.

Thanks for the feedback, now I know the cause of the problem and how to fix it.

To Barry,

Re Pyro 1.2.5
I found a bug with SM in the container.

It spontaneously dies with little excuse.
Add-ons then removed to retry.
When Preferences is clicked it dies instantly.
Regards, R.
