Somehow Chromium Browser on my Ubuntu 14.04 (I suspect Chrome synching from a Windows 10 machine to my Ubuntu Chrome) has been infected with CloudScout.
I have uninstalled Chromium Browser included deleted everything in the .config folder for Chromium. Still when I reinstall Chromium I am disappointed to see the ads are back and destroying my happiness :(
Is there a way I can completely install Chromium including all settings and all added apps etc.
To date I have followed these Q&As.
sudo apt-get remove chromium-browser sudo apt-get purge chromium-browser rm ~/.config/chromium/ -rf
The only other issue I have is that if I roll over the Classic Menu Indicator 0.07 (installed app) it shows me a menu item for Chromium Apps. Either the malware is reinitializing from something inside there or it has gone outside of Chromium and attached itself to my system.
Until then it is goodbye Chromium and hello Firefox.
Any direction or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
