  1. Botnet with (good?) plot twist Spamhaus / CBL is reporting my computer is infected with asprox botnet. Asprox is the third infection reported by CBL, after earlier reporting zeroaccess, sirefef, and tinba. Tried multiple scans of Malwarebytes, Norton NPE, and various other tools, while reading dozens and dozens of pages of how to remove these infections. I only found out about the botnet after complaining to my ISP about slow speeds and eventually, after research, doing a test with Netalyzr at Berkeley Uni in the States. Finally I did a clean install of Win 7 Starter on my Gateway LT27
  2. Hi, I seem to have gotten the Sirefef Trojan on two of my computers. One runs Vista Home Premium SP2 and the other Windows 7 SP1. I'm working on removing the virus on the Vista machine first. I have attached the two requested logs: .

  3. Here's the previous thread: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=116219 System looked clean. Once I signed off I thought I was done, so I missed the last couple of posts. This morning, AVG reported that Adware Generic2.XWC had gotten into the recycle bin on one of the hard drives, and that HTML/Framer was in The windows temporary internet files. Some of my correspondents reported receiving spam from me yesterday after I had already left the office, so apparently one of these got off some e-mail. The server was in the Ukraine, so I figured it was a legacy of the old infection, not

  5. Good Morning Gents, Malwarebytes is detecting the Sirefef virus and so is McAfee, however it is unable to remove them, When i try to run a scan it sometimes crashes, and also sometimes completes the scan but crashes when attempting to remove the virus. I have also ran a tool specifically for the Sirefef virus but that states that the machine is not infected with the virus, have to boot the machine into safemode otherwise it will load up windows normally then hang after around 5 minutes. Hopefully you guys can help. Here are the dds Logs: dds.txt
  6. I've acquired the Sirefef trojan. Couldn't start Security Essentials. Uninstalled Security Essentials. Reinstalled Security Essentials. It kept detecting and restarting. I have since then removed it again until I can get a true fix. Thanks!
  7. Hello: Last night the MS SE on my home computer went red. Clicked on it to update and to become functional again, little panel came on can’t do. Clicked o help and it went to MS (it appeared to be from MS any way. It looked legitimate), “PC Utility Kit” that analyzed my system and said malware status was good and identified, among other things slowing down my computer, over 5 GB of files ( Not likely. On C drive I only have programs, no data files). When I found out that I have to put my CC#, with no internet protection, I backed out. I think this was the source of the virus. Uninstalled my MS
  8. Hi everyone, My computer was recently infected with a virus, which, when I scanned it with MalwareBytes Free, brought up about 10 infections. I quarantined and removed them using MBAM, but "BCMiner" and "Sirefef" still remain. The biggest problem that is visible to me is random browser redirects, but there are probably other things going on beneath the surface. Attach.txt DDS.txt
  9. Hi all, When I turned on my PC this evening, I noticed that Microsoft Security Essentials was not enabled as it should be. I double clicked the icon in the system tray and was advised that "Microsoft Security Essentials isn't monitoring your computer". After rebooting a few times and running the troubleshooter here without success, I did a fresh install of MSE which got things running again. From this point onwards, MSE has been quarantining the Trojan:Win64/Sirefef in various forms (Sirefef.P, Sirefef.AA, Sirefef.W, Sirefef.AN) every 5-10 minutes. Upon running Malwarebytes it appears I also h
  10. for the last few days I'm running the program, finds the sirefef.y or sirefef.n virus, "cleans it" but as soon as I run the program again, after rebooting the system, the trojan apears again. Tried dosens of suggestions from the internet (Yorkut, Msert, FakeAVRemover, rKill, ComboFix, Spybot S&D...but nothing is able to remove the trojans for good. It is bringing the system to crawl and it is not allowing the windows updates to download. Firewall unable to start. Any idea? The only positive thing after first cleanup was that the system stopped restarting every minute (running the Malwareby
  11. Hi I think that I am in big trouble. I recently found sirefef.ac and .ah through MSE which kept on finding them every 15 min. While malware found nothing. MSE recently updated itself and asked me to restart. Since then I cant get online. Modem working fine, however my comp cant get an IP address. If I try and repair, it says failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connections. I did a system restore and now MSE found sirefef.j and win32/karagany.I Any advice????
  12. It seems to work itself around eset(after eset said it would be removed on the next reboot). I also downloaded a sirefef remover from eset's website and it still didn't seem to help. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware didn't pick it up to knowledge. DDS.txt Attach.txt
  13. Evening. I've infected my wifes computer with Sirefef.ac. Originally the problem started with the download of the Smart Fortress 2012 scam (a bogus LinkedIn connection request email from a known collegue - I was fooled), for which I used Malwarebytes to remove (all fine there). However it was apparent that there was still a problem and MS Security Essential identified sirefef.ac as the culprite. However, can I get rid of it? No. Reading this thread: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=108542&st=0&p=543153&hl=sirefef&fromsearch=1entry543153 I see I am not alone. S
