OS: Windows 7 SP1
Whenever utorrent is running there are hundreds of non-stop DNS lookups, I don't remember this ever occurring before. Is this normal? It seems extremely excessive and it looks like I could get banned from using certain nameservers.
Perhaps this is a DNS DDOS/Amplification Attack
There is a registry entry under:
with a string:
Data: (some digits)
This might be unrelated but there is also a registry entry with random characters:
with a dword:
Name: (random characters)
Value: (more random characters with the last few characters being seemingly legible "leakon" i.e. asdfasdfjafjljsdgfhjflsdkeiswleakon)
When I close utorrent down the system "seems" to return to normal. But I have this feeling my PC has been infiltrated every time I use it. Regardless of what this site says:
The falcon beta account entry in the registry feels like a backdoor. I have never enabled this feature.
Avira, Avast, dds, gmer, ZHPDiag, AdwCleaner and just about everything else doesn't detect anything perhaps because the software itself is vulnerable and not necessarily an infection.
