When I sat down at a computer at work today and accessed our online portal where we transfer company information, there was a pop up from Fast Antivirus 2009. I already knew this was a rogue. Closed out and ran MBAM. It found not just an annoying few files but 611 registry entries,files and over 500 Security.Hijack entries. The .exe file was located but is now called EX4677.exe-0 17A09AB.pf located in Prefetch and another called simply EX4677 in AppData. Cleared it out through 3 full MBAM scans and then ran HijackThis. Deleted BHO's and associated remnants. Just thought I'd post this as some of the online forums/blogs were incredibly weak (not this one) and misleading as to how much it had penetrated our company's computer. Obviously my main concern at this point is the amount of information that left. If you want, I'll post my first page of malewarebytes and my HijackThis pre and post so you can get an idea how nasty this little thing can be.
