When was the last time you checked for Microsoft Updates? You should always
stay updated with the latest Microsoft Updates. This is IMPORTANT
. And do you keep your AntiVirus updated? It is also IMPORTANT
that you update all security programs before each scan.
I ask this since "Bloodhound.Exploit.18"
is a heuristic detection for HTML files attempting to exploit the recent Microsoft Internet Explorer Malformed IFRAME Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability discovered in Internet Explorer 6.0.
The issue with the Malformed IFRAME Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability discovered in Internet Explorer 6.0. is addressed here:Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-040
Since you were infected in the first place. It seems that you do not have the latest Microsoft Updates. If you do not. Please do so immediatly
Link below.Microsoft Windows UpdateW32.Mydoom.AL@mm
( Please refer to Note:
below ) is a mass-mailing worm that uses its own SMTP engine to send itself to email addresses that it finds on a compromised computer. It also spreads by using ICQ instant messenger. Note:
HTML files found to exploit the aforemention IE vulnerability are detected as Bloodhound.Exploit.18
by virus definitions dated prior to January 19, 2005.
The above info. leads me to believe that your Antivirus is not updated with the latest definitions. If this is true. Update ASAP
Once you have made sure that you are updated both Microsoft and AntiVirus wise. Then you should scan w/ your AntiVirus while in Safe Mode
.Next: Disable and Enable System Restore
. - You should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.
