Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer
My name is Syler, I will be helping you to solve your Malware issues. Whilst I am helping you, I would
be grateful if you would note the following:
Peer-to-Peer Programs Warning
- Please do not run other tools or scans unless I ask you to and follow all the steps I give you, in order.
- If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask before you proceed with my instructions.
- Please continue to work with me, until I tell you your machine appears to be clean. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
- If I do not hear back from you within 5 days of my last post, then this topic will be closed.
Your log shows that you are using so called peer-to-peer
programs (in your case uTorrent
). These programs allow to share files between users as the name(s) suggest. In today's world cyber crime
has come to an enormous dimension and any means is used to infect personal computers to make use of their stored data or machine power for further propagation of the malware files. A popular means is the use of file-sharing tools as a tremendous amount of prospective victims can be reached through it.
It is therefore possible to be infected by downloading manipulated files via peer-to-peer tools and thus suggested to be used with intense care. Some further readings on this subject, along the included links, are as follows: File-Sharing, otherwise known as Peer To Peer
and Risks of File-Sharing Technology
It is also important to note that sharing entertainment files and proprietary software
infringes the copyright laws in many countries over the world and you are putting yourself at risk of being indicted through organizations watching over the rights of the authors of such files (i.e. the RIAA
for music files, or the MPAA
for movie files in the USA) or the authors of the files themselves.
Naturally there are also legal ways to use these services, such as downloading Linux distributions or office suites such as "Open Office."
It is your decision whether or not you wish to keep your program(s). However, please refrain from using them until your computer has been declared clean.
