Just wondering if anyone could confirm for me that having Backdoor.poison on a system means that it has a virus with backdoor capabilities and therefore needs to be reformatted to be deemed secure.
I am pretty sure that we were able to get it off, but I am only going by the word backdoor being in it to think it needs to be reformatted to be secure.
In doing a search for it I have found info that shows it is more often the type that installs other malware rather than sends info out, but I cannot really tell for sure.
The person whose system this was on uses Comodo firewall and antivirus and is behind a router.
Malwarebytes also found two trojan.bho infections on it and while I am not really sure what those do, I am pretty sure Malwarebytes got rid of all three things but I am still waiting for additional scans to confirm, but do need to know the info I requested above.
Thank you for any and all help
