Hey, i was just having a look for an American Dad wallpaper and then suddenly my Avast antivirus said there was a threat. I noticed there was something strange in my msconfig startup so i ran a malwarebytes scan and it found something called spyware.password.xgen, in the area it was stored it had the names Qeqezi\oxsio.exe. Does anyone know anything about this and what it does? Im abit concerned about it, i know malwarebyes has now quarentined it but what could it have possibly done on my pc during the time it appeared on here?

Hi, and Welcome to Malwarebytes!

If your av caught it and you have run a quick scan using Malwarebytes, and it has guaranteed it, more than likely you are good to go. It probably did not have a chance to do anything to your system since it was caught.

If you want to be sure follow the steps below....

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

As we don't deal with malware removal in the General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, you need to start a topic in the Malware Removal forum so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

  • Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.
  • After posting your new post, make sure under options, you select Track this topic and choose Immediate Email Notification, so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.
  • One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.
  • Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer (Install/Uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.

NOTE: Please DO NOT post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies. If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.

    • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
    • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.

Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk at support@malwarebytes.org or here.

Please be patient, someone will assist you as soon as it is possible.

PS: Please use the "ADDREPLY" t_reply.gif button instead of other ones when you start replying. :)

Since it is spyware, I recommend these additional steps:

1. Contact your bank, credit card company and other financial services and alert them of potential fraud.

2. Change all your passwords for email, logins and everything else that contains personal info.

3. Follow Firefox's instruction for immediate cleanup.
