My virus scanner immediately identified it but said it couldn't disinfect the file but it renamed it. I THINK I'm ok, as I ran my virus scan 2 more times and everything came back clean. I had all the latest updates on my anti-virus downloaded (it's online based, and continually updated).

My computer seems fine, and I haven't come across any anomolies as of yet. I sure hope it's ok.

I hope I meet a "hacker" in a blind alley one day armed with my 12 gauge. I guarantee the person won't ever be able to type anything ever again.

So yes, this threat is real, and it's a pain in the butt. I consider myself an "average" internet surfer, and I don't visit any questionable sites to my knowledge. This attack came out of the blue.
This wouldn't be a hacker.
Secondly, LOL at questionable sites. A bit torrent site, is a questionable site and definately not for the average user.

Re: EXTREME Malware alert

The viruses probably originate from the Anti-virus software companies. I am still waiting for the viruses to infect Apple computers.

Re: EXTREME Malware alert

I got one of those at youtube awhile back. being the geeky type that I am I brought up the task manager and closed out the browser executable.

BTW, if you're still using internet explorer you're just asking for it. If you're using IE versio0n 6.x you're begging to be infected.

Firefox rules, IE sux.

X2... Gave up on Internet Exploder years ago. Too much VB, activeX script crap that exploits IE. IE is too tightly integrated into the Win OS. Plus, FF works on Win, Linux, Ubuntu

Re: EXTREME Malware alert

I may have gotten bit by it, I did a system restore & am now running Malware Bytes. We'll see what happens.
After restore the system started up normally, hopefully it's that easy.
It wouldn't let me run Malware before!

Re: EXTREME Malware alert

I have had to fix 4 pc's in the last week that had the fake anti virus virus.
Had great luck using SUPERAntiSpyware Portable(FREE). I did not have to format any of the pc's. I just booted up in safe mode.
Keep you windows updated is the best way to prevent this.

In that case you are probably ok. Use Spybot S&D to clean up any leftovers you may have.

Re: EXTREME Malware alert

Can this thing just go away? I ran SD & got rid of some advertising cookies.
Malwarebytes didn't find anything.
Running normally for now.

Did you already have the SUPERAntiSpywarePortable downloaded, did you have a disc or what? Where do you get it? I had to do a full system restore and it's a giant pain. Lost some stuff in the process. Next time I'd like to avoid that.

Definitely possible. The one car forum I frequent the most - ssrfanatic.com is currently riddled with trojans and viruses. I believe it's Autoforum's own ad server that got hit, not the main site itself.

My computer was hit twice on Saturday with the dreaded "Windows Anti-Virus Live" trojan before I was able to get my AV tuned up higher to stop the attacks from happening. I attached some of the various warnings I received on that site after the tuning. I'm staying away from there until they can get things squared away... but my messages to Autoforums and the site moderators have gone unanswered so far.

It can happen anywhere - keep your protection up to date!
