Ok below is what happened sometime ago, yet it doesnot mean it has stopped today!!

More revelant for Feb –

Latest Security & News Info

Facebook has finnally changed their privacy policy the the general population is agreeable to.

Well Let me say this if this thing popped up anywhere on your computer, I would have good reason to think you are infected so follow the steps on this Page and then check to be sure on the Page given at the bottom of this page.
Updated today!  Also Many of you know That Anti-Spam software is not required for your system if your doing exactly what I hope to get done.

Does your computer tell you this, LOOK OUT!!

Does your computer tell you this, LOOK OUT!!

The executable that’s offered could be AV2009Install_77011807.exe There could be any numbers in behind the words.

This malware has been removed from too many machines in the last month or so, ranging from home PC’s, to corporate machines, that have corporate AV installed on them.

Note, that Malwarebytes Antimalware (malwarebytes.org) program removes the program with out any problems. You don’t need to buy anything (unless you want continuous protection – but I run it once a week to keep an eye on things)
Run a full scan using the free version, remove everything it finds and you should be good to go.
Another issue I’ve found is that some machines infected with this also have a secondary infection which turns your machine into a mass mailer spewing out thousands of spam emails (this may or may not be related to the first infection). So as well as doing the above, make sure the PC has up to date anti-virus software and run a full scan.
I hope that this will help others in the fight against the crap that is out there

The AntiVirus 2009 attacks are particularly troublesome as they can download and install silently on a PC by just visiting a website. However, the payload still requires a mouse click when the Antivirus pop-up suddenly appears stating the user has an infection. These are very advanced malware attacks to prevent, detect, and clean so avoidance is your best defence.

In fact, this clever social engineering attack may simulate past experiences where the legitimate Anti Virus product has found a virus and presented it to the user. Users who are not technically inclined may even think this is their own Anti Virus system warning them.

When a malware pop-up appears of any type, your PC is in trouble at that point. Sometimes however you can avoid more extensive damage by exiting out and getting immediate help in cleaning. If you can safely exit out of these types of pop-up windows your system for silent downloaders, sometimes your PC may not become infected.

Avoid any clicking or pressing the enter key, as “NO” or “CANCEL” may be secretly programmed to be a “YES”. Malware writers won’t have the best ethical conduct and they want to use any mouse click available to let the attack enter into the Windows environment (even a “NO” or “EXIT”).
Instead use this approach:

USE TASK MANAGER TO SAFELY EXIT MALWARE ATTACKS

1. The easiest way to launch task manager in Windows is to press: Ctrl+Shift+Esc

2. Press the applications TAB (if it’s not already positioned there)

3. Select the pop-up TASK

4. Press End Task button at bottom to close it

5. Then seek technical help on cleaning … If you’re not experienced, my #1 tip is to have a friend or relative help you so that you do this safely and minimize losses to your PC.

Frequently, people ask how they know if the site they landed on is serving up a safe program or if it is dangerous. One consideration is Web of Trust, a free Internet security addon for your browser. In fact, based on the results illustrated by Certified Bug in What is WOT, it appears that WOT is much more responsive than the formerly acclaimed McAfee Site Advisor.

Other steps to take are to stay up to date with security updates for all your software, not just Microsoft updates, install and maintain anti-virus software and a firewall. Additional solid advice is available in Bill Pytlovany’s recent article, Where did my Spyware come from?.

What do you do if your computer does become infected with one of the rogues like XP Antivirus? First and foremost, do not fall for the scam and send any money. Do not click any of the links they provide. Next, I would recommend installing, updating and runing a scan with Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware (MBAM), allowing it to remove what is found. In providing help on the forums, I have seen how effective MBAM is in removing not only rogues like XP Antivirus but other malware as well.

I help and ask for no monies either. Donations to the actual sites that make these programs are suggested.


SCAN YOUR COMPUTER !!!

Antivirus *FSECURE*

Don’t stop when you find the first piece of malware. It is not uncommon for a computer that has been exploited through a security flaw to have been penetrated more than once. Also, some malware opens backdoors that facilitate the installation of software that enables use of the infected computer by remote control.

Most links on this site are going to open in a new window if you just click on them, but if you press down the ball on the mouse it will open a new Tab.

Web of Trust (WOT) as a way to help recognize rogues when surfing the web by warning you before you interact with a risky website. In a comment to that article, Deborah from WOT posted a link to a video illustrating another scam designed to part you with your money. As Deborah explained, WOT tested it on a clean virtual machine and it reported finding over 500 errors, 31 of them classified as severe!

Because the video is a clear example of what people are faced with every day, I decided to share it here. The information presented in the fake scan in the video appears credible so is it no wonder why people panic and fall for these scams? Don’t you be fooled!

The extra layer of security provided by WOT will help keep you safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and unreliable shopping sites. Definitely worth considering!

When a threat is detected by the the BitDefender Online scanner, it will first attempt to disinfect (repair) the file, and only if it cannot be repaired, it will delete it. However, you can elect to change the secondary action from delete to “Report Only” or “Prompt for User Action”, so an infected system file is not deleted. This is the safest option to guard against false positives and system files that have been “patched” by malware. It is also the safest option if heuristics are used in detection, which they are by default.

    The options which are checked (enabled) in the image are the BitDefender default scanning options, and they may be changed.
