"[SID:23674] System Infected: Virut Request 2 detected" keeps popping up every few minutes. I have windows 7 and use firefox as main browser. Symantec was updated 3 days ago automatically. I can see a large amount of events in Client management security log with the full message: "[SID: 23674] System Infected: Virut Request 2 attack blocked. Traffic has been blocked for this application: \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME2\WINDOWS\SYSWOW64\SVCHOST.EXE."


Is this a sign of infection or is my virus protection actively fighting an intruion? Is there anything I can do?

Virut (if confirmed) is a very bad news because it's not curable.


Please run a free online scan with the ESET Online Scanner

  • Disable your antivirus program
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use
  • Click Start
  • IMPORTANT! UN-check Remove found threats
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Scan archives

  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push List of found threats
  • Click on Export to text file , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
