I have a flash drive with pictures from my cell phone and camera on it....I plugged in today and ran Norton... It says blocked-- bloodhound.exploit.13 and submitted it to Symantec... I re-ran Norton again and it blocked it again..... This flash drive may have been plugged into a grade school teachers Mac computer to install a few pics needed,, I don't really remember!! Win Vista 64 bit system..
My questions are what is bloodhound.exploit.13 ???
What will it do if I don't remove it from the flash drive???
How would I go about removing this from the flash drive ???
Am I safe from infection since it is blocked by Norton ???

It is showing on Norton as File name ----
c:\users\everyday\appdata\local\temp\~cq8fc8.tmp.tmp

Heuristic Virus, High severity , Blocked by auto-Protect

BC AdBot (Login to Remove)

Thanks coles1mom----That a link I have already been to ... Vista is not listed as one of the systems affected on there....and shows a low risk factor???? Seems every forum or site I investigate about this has a can't fix it , maybe it's Norton , Maybe it's Microsoft photo gallery..... Nobody seems to know... I believe someone has to know something about this LOL....I'm in search of a cure now...

Hello, is this happening when you run Windows Photo Gallery?
It's a Heuristic detection. A heuristic detection is a detection, generally made by a antivirus product, to a file which may be a threat due to certain qualities and code in the file. The goal of a heuristic detection is to find threats which havenít already been identified.

So it may be a a False Positive.

Lets' upload this file for a second opinion on what it actually is..

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:
How to see hidden files in Windows

Please click this link-->Jotti

When the jotti page has finished loading, click the Browse button and navigate to the following file and click Submit.
<filepath>suspect.file

Please post back the results of the scan in your next post.

If Jotti is busy, try the same at Virustotal: http://www.virustotal.com/



Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
Download Link 1
Download Link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Troubleshoot Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Yes Boopme, It appeared when windows photo gallery came on....Norton says the threat was blocked 2 times about 2 minutes apart,,,,,It says it is now a resolved issue and has not appeared again---Norton did not quarantine it and and I have no way that I know of to run it on Jotti ----Firefox 4 says Virus Total is not compatible ??? I have Malewarebytes installed and ran a scan before and after disabling Norton and checking scan all drives...Logs came up with 0 problems..I have since installed Panda USB Vaccine and have disabled auto play..... I guessing that Norton took care of it ---But are there any other ways to verify this that I can try just to be sure and get some peace of mind ???

I have a program called PDF Suite 2010. The program hijacks anything that I want to open with Adobe, then asks for money. This has stopped all my efforts to remove it. I just want to make it go away.

You should start your own thread explaing the problems you are having.

“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently thorugh the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life.”

OK, so yes, it was then a False Positive. The Norton latest update then took careof the issue. You are fine now.

Agreed on bucklite
This topic is finished and has nothing to do with your issue. It is always better to have your own topic.
