    Default "QualityCodec" undetected

    You guessed what and where, and I did this one 85-90% deliberate, to see what happens.

    But QualityCodec was not removed, not with Antivir, and not detected with Spybot S & D. Removal was pretty simple from Safe mode and cleaning from registry startup items.

    Runalizer had "Delete" button locked and I had to do "Change" of startup item to an empty string. But it was not sufficient, for safer removal I had to go to Regedit and do a "search" for everything starting from C:\program Files\QualityCodec directory.

    The reason I'm writing is to send these files so Spybot S & D could detect them.

    I'm glad if I was able to contribute to the Cause.

    Greetz,
    Marvin

    P.S: Pls find the QualityCodec.zip in attachment. Happy DESTROYING!

    Sorry, I did this the wrong way, but it is the 1st time.

    I'm sending to detections(at)safer-networking.org

    Regards,

    Me again, correction, I'll have to post here. Yahoo is blocking these and so is probably my organization's mail gateway.

    Thank you for consideration.

    Greetz,

    Hello Marvin Barley.

    I saved and then removed the attachment, thank you. My anti-virus program immediately detected the infected file.

    Please do not attach infected files here where a member could mistakenly click on it, even if your mail client is having difficulty in sending to detections.

    By the way the address is: detections(AT)spybot.info Replace AT with @

    my organization's mail gateway
    Is this a networked company computer?

    Cheers.

    Default Is it OK to send crypted .zip with undetected spyware?

    Thank you for reply and instructions.

    Both Yahoo and my Faculty server have AV checking.

    I wonder if it is OK to crypt zip file with password and then send you .zip and the password?

    I saw Avira has virus upload engine. I thought something like that would be simply and nice IMHO.

    Please what to do in the future?

    Antivir did not detect this QualityCodec.exe as a virus, and it has downloaded lots of spyware so I thought of you.

    Thnx,
    Marvin

    Hi there.

    If it is correct that you tried to send to:
    detections(at)safer-networking.org
    Then you need to change that to .info

    I did send the file to detections and thanks again.

    OK, I've changed that.

    Please forgive me one more question:

    - here is too dangerous to post, as I understood
    - mail gateways may stop .zip as malware

    How then to send? Is it OK to encrypt and send .zip + pass?

    Thank you.

    Marvin

    Yes, as long as you give them the password.
