When I go here: http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
I get:

404 - Not Found

What's happening?

We had a User download it a few hours ago, and they received the message: (according to the User)

under no circumstances should this be run on a live machine
Heed this warning or be prepared to get a new machine

That don't sound right? And now its 404ing
Did Combofix get hacked?

As the entire Malware support world waits for the answer......

ComboFix has been withdrawn by the developer until further notice.

ComboFix is not available for download until an issue with the program has been resolved. Please be patient while the developer fixes the program and makes it available once again. As more information becomes available, we will update this page.

DO NOT attempt to download ComboFix from sites other than BleepingComputer.com and Forospyware.com!

Other sites hosting ComboFix are not authorized mirrors and are hosting outdated copies of ComboFix that contain a bug that may render some machines unbootable. Using unauthorized mirrors of ComboFix puts your computer at risk of not booting again. Please wait for the official version to be fixed and released again.

We will also announce when ComboFix is available on our Twitter and Facebook pages..


Also please note the message text in blue at the top of the Am I infected? What do I do? forum.

No one should be using ComboFix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

We will do our best to update this thread when it comes live. The easiest way to keep track, though, is to subscribe to either our facebook or twitter feeds.

You are correct as was announced: http://twitter.com/BleepinComputer/status/6843454166

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
