A colleague of mine managed to get infected with Reveton ransomeware. In order to deal with it, I booted in safe mode and rolled back to a previous system restore point. I then updated Sophos and ran a full scan, Sophos appears to have been able to clear up any infected files correctly. I have also run Malwarebytes on the machine and that comes up clear as well.

Is there anything else I should do to check that this has been completely removed? I am thinking of running the Emsisoft emergency kit, just to double check, would you recommend doing this as well?

Kind regards.

Edit: Moved topic from Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to the more appropriate forum, due to the absence of any malware logs. ~ Animal

You can take a look at our Uninstall guide for that version of malware here: Remove the FBI MoneyPak Ransomware or the Reveton Trojan
