[Help] What is https://gslbeacon.lijit.com/ ?


A few days ago my PC started showing randomly warnings saying “unable to start the application”. When I click in details, it opens up a notepad with information I don’t understand.

[Here is what it looks like.](https://ibb.co/qnvT4nv) As you can see I use windows 7. (I know it is in portuguese, hope it’s not a problem.)

Already tried running Avast and Malwarebytes (both free) and nothing showed up. Looking up on Hybrid Analysis, I found something similar with few reports. I think it’s something related to that ‘gslbeacon’ thing. I don’t remember installing anything suspicious recently, and this doesn’t seem to have any other effect than opening warnings signs. Appreciate any help.

Install this and run a scan – [https://www.hitmanpro.com/en-us/downloads](https://www.hitmanpro.com/en-us/downloads)

It sounds like a redirect from Chrome after doing some research, if the scan does not fix it. I’d recommend re-installing Chrome but making sure SYNC is off.
