    Default Possible Virtumonde infection


    During a routine check with Spybot, the program discovered 2 Virtumonde files, a library and a settings files. The program was able to remove the settings, but apparently not the library, even though it was repeated from a reboot.

    The machine has had no apparent symptoms (at least not any of those described publicly), and there is no entry for "MS Juan" in the registry.

    Per your request, here is DDS.txt (attach.txt is zipped and attached:

    thanks for the info.
    Do I need to do anything else?
    If Spybots not finding Virtumonde anymore, then we are done. You can keep Malwarebytes, note that the free version must be updated manually and a scan started manually. Its good practice to keep it updated even if you dont scan with it at that time.
    So if all is good, some tips to help you remain malware free:

    10 Tips for Prevention and Avoidance of Malware:
    There is no reason why your computer can not stay malware free.

    No software can think for you. Help yourself. In no special order:

    1) It is essential to keep your OS,(Windows) browser (IE, FireFox) and other software up to date to "patch" vulnerabilities that could be exploited. Visit Windows Update frequently or use the Windows auto-updates feature. Staying updated is also essential for other web based applications like Java, Adobe Flash/Reader, iTunes etc. More and more third party applications are being targeted. Not sure if you are using the latest version of software? Check their version status here.

    2) Know what you are installing to your computer. A lot of software can come bundled with unwanted add-ons, like adware, toolbars and malware. More and more legitimate software is installing useless toolbars if not unchecked first. Do not install any files from ads, popups or random links. Do not fall for fake warnings about virus and trojans being found on your computer and you are then prompted to install software to remedy this. See also the signs that you may have malware on your computer.

    3) Install and keep updated: one antivirus and two or three anti-malware applications. If not updated they will soon be worthless. If either of these frequently find malware then its time to *review your computer habits*.

    4) Refrain from clicking on links or attachments via E-Mail, IM, IRC, Chat Rooms, Blogs or Social Networking Sites, no matter how tempting or legitimate the message may seem. See also E-mail phishing Tricks.

    5) Do not click on ads/pop ups or offers from websites requesting that you need to install software to your computer--*for any reason*. Use the Alt+F4 keys to close the window.

    6) Don't click on offers to "scan" your computer. Install ActiveX Objects with care. Do you trust the website to install components?

    7) Consider the use of limited (non-privileged) accounts for everyday use, rather than administrator accounts. Limited accounts can help prevent *malware from installing and lessen its potential impact.* This is exactly what user account control (UAC) in Windows Vista and Windows 7 attempts to address.

    8) Install and understand the *limitations* of a software firewall.

    9) A tool for automatically hardening and securing Internet Explorer 8.0. Requires site registration for downloading. Changes some of the default settings of IE 8.0, Read the FAQ's. Or see a slide show Here and do it yourself. How to harden FireFox for safer surfing.

    10) Warez, cracks etc are very popular for carrying malware payloads. If you look for these you will encounter malware. If you download/install files via p2p networks you will encounter malware. Can you really trust the source of the file?

    More info/tips with pictures in links below.

    Happy Safe Surfing.
