PUM.bad.proxy

Registry Values Infected:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer (PUM.Bad.Proxy) -> Value: ProxyServer -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Detected this about 30 minutes ago. Peeked around on google and came back with nada. Can't really find anything wrong with Avira, and multiple MBAM scans reported nothing else.

Anyone have any idea what this is, if I should be checking on other things, or should I be worried?

Thanks.

I also have this. I find it only with Full Scan. When I restart it returns.

I thought is was releated to Search Results Redirects, but removing it did not fix that problem.

Hi folks. Dont know if this thread is still active but MWB picked up this virus and quarantined it. It affects my Firefox. You must manually change proxy settings each time you open Firefox by entering Tools, Options, Advanced, Network, Settings, and deselect Manual Proxy Settings and select No Proxy (at least for my cable internet provider). In the Manual Proxy Settings box it redirects to your own computer 127.0.0.1 and a random Port selection.

MWB got rid of the bad registry setting: Hkey_Current User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Internet Settings\Proxy Server. It deleted the "Proxy Server" portion from this key.

But it still defaults to Manual Proxy Settings at 127.0.0.1 each time Firefox is opened.

Any fix for Firefox users??
