Hi All. Downloaded combogfix from a link here on this server. After running, CA website spyware shows that I now mysteriously have Kaza and BitFrost on my comptuter! I was able to run a Mcaffee Spyware scan, and delete them. Now CA (I know, 2 different software vendors), shows I clean.

Didn't want to believe it, so ran it on another laptop.... and Presto AFTER RUN SHOWING KAZA and BITFROST installed on the machine.

So my question is, is Combofix itself infected and carrying trojoans Kaza and BitFrost in it!!!!

I'd really like to know. Thanks!

Please note the message text in blue at the top of this forum.

You should not be using Combofix unless 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 lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

Combofix is not malware. It is a highly specialized fix tool. However, some of its embedded files may at times be detected by some anti-virus/anti-malware scanners as a "RiskTool", "Hacking tool", "Potentially unwanted tool", or even "malware (virus/trojan)" when that is not the case.

CA website spyware shows that I now mysteriously have Kaza and BitFrost on my comptuter!

Did the scan provide a specific file name associated with this malware threat and if so, where is it located (full file path) at on your system?
