Found evidently infected files undetected by Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

Last week a friend of my mine installed the free Malware bytes program on a computer with Windows 2000 that had started having problems with corrupt files.  With the updated definition file noting was detected.  After another couple days the computer couldn't even boot-up and Windows 2000 couldn't repair it.  I installed another harddrive with Windows XP on it as the master and left the infected hard drive as a secondary (D:).


When I examined the D: hard drive with Windows Explorer, I could see that many executable (.exe) files had been written to last week and was wondering if you at Malwarebytes might be interested having any copies to study?  I found that I had a copy of Microsoft Spider Solitaire that was written to last week and larger than the original file I copied off a Widows XP computer a couple years earlier; I thought these might make a good comparison for your technical staff to study.


Thanks for reading!
