    One thing I dont understand about malware in general - how do people get infected I know it sounds stupid but I rarely get hit by something

    quite odd.

    I always ask my clients what were you doing at the time of infection, I rarely get a legitimate answer however when I do it is always surfing dodgy sites ...
    So.. how do you get spybot to clear the registry when 30% of the infections lock you out of the registry?

    As or infections.. and being infected..
    User opens any and every email attachments and all..
    Allow all pop-ups to do as promised
    Machine is not fully patched..
    99% of users allow all scripts and activeX to run
    (How many don't use Spyware blaster? or have a add/bad site blocking HOSTS file? )
    How do you know what a Bad site is? I don't .. is it the porn sites? is it the Auction Sites?.. or is it the hacking sites? the P2P link sites, Facebook? Myspace? Ask? Tucows? Tudogs? ... mysite? ebay? cnn? AO?
    I don't know.. .. I've been hit on trusted sites, and have seen clients machines hit from all of the above... all via a bad advertisement or a script in the page..
    sometimes from deliberate clicks on pages, some times from auto run scripts..

    Hmmm,

    What surprises me is that I haven't come across it yet?

    Must be an "underarm problem?"....... Australian and New Zealand cricket fans will remember that one?......... the Chappel brothers? Greg and Ian as I recall?

    Well,

    1. FF with adblock and script block
    2. DiamondCS: RegistryProt and Process Guard.............. WormGuard as well perhaps? (See, Aussies can do things better than bowl underarm)
    3. With IE just make sure that ActiveX and other scripts require user permission.
    4. A firewall?
    5. Don't clicky clicky?

    I have to go out now, but will come back with some more ideas............. does anyone fancy writing a tutorial?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    I got hit by something yesterday...while on trusted sites, Taz, AO, Facebook, CBC, CNN and a link to a news article provided by CNN.

    Symantec caught it....I dont know where it came from as I had all those sites open

    Bloodhound.exploit.193

    I did some reading and about 20,000 legit sites are infected and are infecting web users.

    patch patch patch....update update update.

    Run as a limited user.

    Edit>oh and I was connected to msn...although no open conversations (thats how I talk to my kids when they are at their dads)

    The file blphcptej0e75e.scr, is a legal file of Sysinternals company and is not detectable.
    This company belongs to Microsoft.



    The response from out Virus department.

    I searched for this file on the internet and no go.

    Anyone got any information for this ...

    N.B I made a big stink about this and the director involved. Nihil its not that one who gave all the money away to the church :P

    I phoned spain and asked for this guy :P

    No, it isn't................Sysinternals don't do randomly named screensaver files (.scr)

    Neither does the Microsoft Corporation..............

    If you can grab a copy just submit it to Jotti and Virus Total............... or to me?

    I posted the links earlier in this thread........... I would suggest that you bookmark them.

    You cannot find that file on the internet........... you can find every other damn Microsoft or whoever's file? so why not that one????????????

    I will manage your virus research team at the moderate fee of €2,500 per day, plus expenses (I am very "expensesive").

    Is your corporation hell bent on self destruction? it does seem that way from what I can see. Just because you can see something in the script that claims that the item belongs to X, Y or Z corporation, doesn't mean that it is true?

    That's a typically bad sign when a file like "blphcptej0e75e.scr" doesn't come
    up in the search engines. Basically it means the file or its name is too new to
    show up on the web yet and was probably created by some rogue developer.
    Legit files are all over the search engines.

    Did you try right-clicking on the file to check the properties? Under the "Summary"
    tab is some info that'll tell you the version, who wrote it, etc., etc. Of course,
    if it's a virus, you might get infected doing that, so you might try it on an old
    PC.

    Another safe browsing alternative is to use a virtual machine. I lean pretty
    heavily on that technology these days.
