I have been asked to clean a laptop that was infected with the open cloud av malware on 10/3/2011. Malwarebytes is now warning that this variant includes a trojan that make it impossible to guarantee a clean machine. They suggest changing all account numbers and passwords. Having played with removal for a day I am amazed at the sophistication of this variant. I am inclined to recommend a low level reformat and reinstall. What do your experts think about this nasty code. Thanks, PS
