Hello all.

Does anyone know if there is a changelog for Combofix posted somewhere? I have been trying to find one but I can't find neither that nor an official site. It would be nice to have, especially if it lists the different actions it takes.

Welcome to BC jAW

ComboFix Change logs and links to discussions as to how it works are not available for public viewing in order to safeguard the tool from malware writers.

You should not be using Combofix unless you have been instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be used under the guidance and supervision of an expert, not for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could adversely impact your system and prevent it from ever starting again.

Thank you for the reply.

Ok, good to know. I help a lot of people on a daily basis to remove different threats and infections, many of which have new variants of old goodies. So I just thought that it would be handy to know if these new files has been included in the ComboFix and what actions it takes on the system so that I know what I have to manually perform beside the ComboFix.

But I don't stand or fall with that information since I usually clean the systems manually and only use the automated tools as a last resort.

Thanks again.
