Hello, I am running a windows 7 professional 64bit operating system. My main security suite is Symantec Norton Internet Security 2011. I run RuBotted. I also scan with Superantispyware weekly, and Malwarebytes. In addition, I run the free version of Winpatrol. Today, I noticed RuBotted had alerted and it is showing "Possible Kraken Bobax" infection, and says Botnet Malware cannot be removed.

Any info on what to do would be appreciated.

They only show what they usually do which is tracking cookies, then they eliminate them. Rubotted is here http://free.antivirus.com/rubotted/

there is a really simple log which just says Possible Kraken Bobax - unable to remove. You can click on Possible Kraken Bobax which takes you to a Trend Micro web page called Threat Encyclopedia. In the treat encyclopedia it says that they cannot find any results for possible kraken bobax. It is puzzling how a Trend Micro product can alert to a possible bot, and then fail to know what the bot is or have any mention of the bot in their threat database.

I would then consider it to be a false positive.
