Hi all, got kinda a problem here.

My not-so-smart-in-this-case younger brother was on my computer and DLed and ran an .exe he probably shouldn't have. I ran it through MSE and Malaware; which is what I have on my system and nothing came up. Running the .exe doesnt do anything either other than show up in the task manager for a few seconds (on the surface anyways).

I still didn't trust it so I wanted to run the file on Virus Total. It was too large so I compressed it into a .rar file. It came up with two results

AVG Dropper.Generic6.CDVF 20121009
BitDefender Gen:Variant.Barys.443 20121009

I cannot find hardly anything online about these other than Dropper seems to be bad and hardly anything on the gen Variant

Is this something I should be worried about? I'd like to remove them if I could. Currently I'm not seeing any obvious signs of infection.

I'm currently running and eset online scan too.

Thanks for any help and guidance!!

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

Lets start with this.

Please download and run this DDS Scanning Tool. Nothing will be deleted. It will just give me some information about your system.

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.

Please just paste the contents of the DDS.txt log in your next post. DO NOT attach the log.
