Hey guy's, I look new to the site, but I have been using this site for virus removal tools and what not for quite some time.

 

So, just curious, but I've never seen combofix display, "Writing 'limitblankpassworduse' with data '1' failed."

 

Attached is a screenshot with the quoted line.

 

This combofix was downloaded today, from bleeping computer and was executed on a corporate computer. No I was not instructed by a bleeping computer member to execute combofix and yes i understand the risks.

Hello, thanks for posting.

ComboFix is not infected. . . I have just verified this with multiple engines. What you're seeing is an error written to the console. That's all the information I can provide to you.

As you've previously expressed your knowledge of the risks of running ComboFix unsupervised I'll spare you the normal speech. But I will point out that CF was never designed to run in a corporate/networked environment. The unique configuration of systems on the network from company to company can cause unpredictable results at times. Choosing to run CF in such a way is, of course, your prerogative. However, we will likely be unable to support any such use of the tool.

Confirmed. This is just an error setting a particular registry key.
