Hi, I'm running off of a 64bit Windows 7 home premium.
I have bitdefender antivirus free.
Some questions about the new exploit with Ccleaner. I unfortunately did install 5.33 around Sept 1st or so, as I always try to keep up with my updates.
However, between then and now, Bitdefender had never detected any trojans or the like since its installation on the 21st of August. However, right after the exploit was discovered, Bitdefender then notified me that the installation files were indeed infected. I had updated to 5.34 by the 12th of September and immediately uninstalled upon hearing of the infection, so any files would have been overwritten within its core and ultimately deleted upon uninstall.
With all of the constant updates on this exploit, what is the likelihood of infection on my computer? I keep hearing that it either runs solely on 32-bit systems, or on the 32-bit installation file, which can run on 64-bit.
I have ran scans with Rkill, JRT, Adwcleaner, Rougekiller, MBAR and Bitdefender and all came up clean. (However, Roguekiller did bluescreen unexpectedly on its first scan with an errorcode linking to the appinit_dll file? The value was empty and I used microsoft's guide to disable its loading file "loadappinit_dll" by writing it to 0. I do not know if this is specifically related to possible infection or not)
Bitdefender marked the installation files as backdoor.agent.ABXS. They were immediately disinfected and deleted.
Other than that odd blue screen and slow windows updates, nothing seems amiss. What should be done from this point?
I can provide scan logs if necessary and if further scans need to be done I can do them. I'm unsure how to access scan logs on bitdefender as I am pretty new to the specific antivirus program.
