Hello, I'm new to BleepingComputer.com, but wanted to share some info on a possible new malware that's been located on my computer.

I just installed the new free version of AVG 2011, and an alert shows that a hidden malware program has been found inside of this program: rundll32.dll ---->
mqbkupx.dll (hidden)

I have been having IE Browser redirects for a while and couldn't figure out what the problem was. On doing a web search for this file, there is NO information on it at all on the internet that I've been able to find. I have not been able to find any info on this malware on Bleeping Computer either.

Since AVG has quarantined the rundll32.dll program file, I am no longer having the redirects.

I found it odd that it's not showing as malware in my internet searches, but possibly it's a brand new one?

Other than running the AVG virus program, I don't have any other solutions. Just wanted to put this out there for anyone else having browser redirect problems, because I've seen that cleaning up these redirects, is a very time-consuming issue.

I appreciate any feedback.

Thanks!

Hello.

Many modern malware infections employ random naming on their files. This explains why you are unable to find information on it.

Is the machine still running well?
