Hello people, I was surfing through a swedish forum with a section dedicated to malware and found an intresting post about the files cioset.exe och daemi.exe, which had come from a zip-file from a download through some torrent-site.

I tried googling on these files but found nothing of intrest so I now turn to you for enlightning :thumbsup:


EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum

If you have those files on your system and cannot find any information, submit them to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.

Torrents are part of peer-to-peer file distribution systems used for sharing and transferring files within a large network of users.

Using any peer-to-peer (P2P) or file sharing program (i.e. Limewire, eMule, Kontiki, BitTorrent, uTorrent, Azureus/Vuze) is a security risk which can make your system susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, and exposure of personal information.

The reason for this is that file sharing relies on its members giving and gaining unfettered access to computers across the P2P network. This practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft, system infection and remote access exploit by attackers who can take control of your computer without your knowledge. Even if you change the risky default settings to a safer configuration, downloading files from an anonymous source increases your exposure to infection because the files you are downloading may actually contain a disguised threat. Many malicious worms and Trojans, such as the Storm Worm, target and spread across P2P files sharing networks because of their known vulnerabilities. In some instances the infection may cause so much damage to your system that recovery is not possible and a Repair Install will NOT help!. In those cases, the only option is to wipe your drive, reformat and reinstall the OS.

Even the safest P2P file sharing programs that do not contain bundled spyware, still expose you to risks because of the very nature of the P2P file sharing process. By default, most P2P file sharing programs are configured to automatically launch at startup. They are also configured to allow other P2P users on the same network open access to a shared directory on your computer. The best way to eliminate these risks is to avoid using P2P applications.

Thanks for moving it!

Well, as I stated in my post I don't have these types of files on my system, but I saw someone on another forum who had them. These files wasn't recognized by some of the best malware removal programs available, so I just wanted to see if I could get any info from this site. I'll check out the links you provided and nice to see some swedish words here! :thumbsup:

Edit: Can't use the links since I don't have these files, but I'll forward your info to the one that does!

When no info is found during searches that usually indicates the file(s) are probably new and have not been submitted anywhere yet for analysis.
