Hi all.

 

So, I was infected with Sality by Combofix at an earlier attempt to remove a virus, chronicled here. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/483520/nod32-finds-mbr-sector-0-virus/

 

I thought the problem was dealt with, but Nod32 is finding Sality on one of my external drives, which is currently plugged into my main computer. I am worried that the virus has passed through my computer, but I get the feeling that the virus is inert at present, and am crossing my fingers that that is the case. I ran SalityKiller from Kapersky and it found no infections on my main machine, and I don't know if it scanned my external drives.

 

Can you help me? And, how do I check to see if Sality is, indeed, completely removed? I don't want to reformat.

 

I have a main computer, and a laptop. I also have two external drives, a USB stick an an android phone. I don't know if it's passed to these devices. I didn't know where else to post this thread.

 

I should have reported on this sooner, but I know the ComboFix guys have fixed the software, and I thought it was completely gone. I just want to get rid of the infection.

Hi,
 
I'd like to get a diagnostic scan going
 
Please download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
DDS.com
DDS.pif
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • Mark the option attach.txt.
  • Click on Start.
  • After the scan has finished, confirm the message with Ok.
  • DDS will automatically open both logfiles.
  • You can find them on your desktop as well.
  • Please post the content of those logfiles with your next answer.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

Next please see here - http://support.kaspersky.com/1874 and follow the instructions under Option 1 to download and run SalityKiller
Please don't send help request via PM, unless I am already helping you. Use the forums!
