I use McAfee, Super Anti Spyware and Malwarebytes on my computer. Recently Amnesty International endorsed Detekt, so I decided almost for fun to install that software and see if it turned up anything.
Detekt returned a positive on njRAT, a very nasty keylogging, mic-and-cam accessing, etc. etc. bit of real true spyware.
Sooooo... I'm wondering about it though, as I use TeamViewer. Could TV be causing this postiive to be returned?
I did a few searches with Farbar (available here on Bleeping) and can't find any njRAT on my machine that way or any other way, for that matter. I called my ISP to see if they had any signs of intrusion (and they, Time Warner Cable, hah, said that they would never let that happen to their customers! hee).
So... Detekt is basically advising me to throw out my computer (a rather expensive option hahha) so thought to see if this community, that I've lurked on for years and years has any experience or solutions.
If you google njRAT all you are returned is ways to surreptiously use it--YouTube has tons of instructional videos. ;(
See very little in the way of advice, which makes me think that either it is not common, or is really so super secret bit of stuff that you can't find help to get rid of it.
Anyone know anything about njRAT they can share? I'm wondering what extremes to go to to handle this--or if I even need to handle?
The message back from Detekt is:
Following is what I discovered:
This is a common trojan which is free to download from the Internet and is available to just about anyone. It should be normally detected and quarantined by major AntiVirus software. Although it is impossible to guess who might be targeting you, you should seek for assistance nevertheless.
