    Default Spybot help?

    I recently had the misfortune of catching a Reveton ransomware virus, and was wondering if spybot can handle it?

    Hello h2opolo11,

    Reveton ransomware has been used in online bank fraud, among other difficulties caused by this malware.

    But it’s important for readers to understand that if you have been hit by a ransomware attack, the ransomware component is almost certainly just the most visible of the threats that reside on your system. For one thing, Kafeine said, the latest Reveton versions will steal all passwords stored on the victim’s PC. What’s more, the FBI’s report indicates Reveton is being bundled with Citadel, which is an extremely powerful and advanced family of malware that can be quite difficult to remove.

    If this is a personal computer someone can take a look at the system, please start a topic in the Malware Removal Forum and a volunteer analyst will advise when available.

    First see that forum's FAQ which also includes instructions in post #2 on how to provide DDS/aswMBR logs, which are the logs used in the preliminary analysis.

    Best regards.
