While on the internet today, my internet security program advised me that it had blocked a potential web attack: Malicious File Download Attack 24. Looking at the log files in Norton, I can see the severity of the attack, but it says no action is required for Recommendation of action. While doing a little research on my own, I can see that doesn't always mean something didn't find its way on my machine. It just happened, so there are no obvious signs of abnormal system performance going on. How can I be sure? Also, I've read through several fixes of similar issues on here where the user was advised to run ComboFix under the guidance of a technical adviser. I would like to do the same.
Older XP machine with up to date patches and SP3
Running Norton Internet Security version 126.96.36.199 (up to date)
Running concurrently Malwarebytes version 188.8.131.527 (up to date)
I've attached a screenshot of the potential intrusion, found in the NIS log file
Thank you so kindly,
