Okay, here's my problem. This laptop runs Windows Vista Home Premium Edition 64-bit. My friend has been getting files infected with Bloodhound.Exploit.196 or Bloodhound.Exploit.213. What I noticed is that the infected files generally went DWH*.tmp (* being a three character sequence of letters and numberes) and Symantec would quarantine them. I scanned using MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and Super AntiSpyware and removed the threats it found, which were only tracking cookies. I notice that the location of these infected files is always in C:Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Temp\

Then I see this on Symantec's forum:

http://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/gen...tmp-temp-folder

http://service1.symantec.com/support/ent-s...cd?OpenDocument

I was going to download the patches, but just to be safe I scanned the computer using Kaspersky's online scanner. I'm not sure if you are allowed to post the saved log in this part of the forum, but I can add it to this post. Kaspersky finds a malware called Exploit.Win32.Pidief.afg. I know that anti-virus programs often have different names for the same malware. However, Kaspersky found these files in C:\Users\All Users\Symantec\Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition\7.5\Quarantine\********\********.VBN (* being an 8 character sequence consisting of numbers and letters (ex. 13EC0091\5BEC48F2.VBN). I think that both anti-viruses are detecting the updates made by Symantec as exploits. However, I'm not sure whether to go ahead with adding the patches and then scan again or look for another fix.

Hi,

Can you please update MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware, and perform a full scan? Post the logfile in your next reply.

Also, post the Kaspersky logfile. :thumbsup:

I want to post the log, but the forum keeps telling me it's too long. Can I attach it instead?

Also, I would like to use Malwarebytes, but it takes 8 hours to scan the computer. Is there a way to tell it to ignore certain files to speed things up?

Hi,

No, just run a full scan with MBAM. I want to see what's infected at the moment. :thumbsup:

Yes, you can attach the Kaspersky logfile.

Hello

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/236613/infected-with-bloodhoundexploit196213/

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted

OR


2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send me a Private Message indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond. Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
