email with infected link

yabberAugust 2, 2012

Hi all,

My colleague at work received an email with a link that contained a virus. He opened it, then realised it was probably dodgy and closed out of it before the page finished loading. Was that too late? He does have AVG on his computer and it didn't come up with a warning when he clicked on the link.

He's got the week off now and we need to start his pc up to look at some ordering info but I'm not sure what to expect, thanks for your help!

Run full updated malwarebytes scan immediately and then run a full superantispyware updated scan, both are free. You might also run an online antivirus scan like eset free.
Let us know if you need to have links or help. And report back what is found.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (Win) - Detecting and Removing Malware FREE version

SUPERAntiSpyware select FREE edition RED button

Free Online Scanner

be sure to update each program prior to running the full scan.

you can keep these and run them weekly or monthly for a good layered protection for your pc. They will not interfere with your Antivirus program since they do not run until you run them.

I haven't run the scans on my colleagues computer yet but decided to try my own first. So the malwarebytes scan came up clean and the SUPERantispyware scan came up with some cookies and 2 trojans? This is the log:

It has removed them from the computer now, so all is good?

I'll try the free online scanner next as well.

The free online scanner cleaned up 1 more file but I'm not sure what that was because I accidentally closed out of it

Oh that's not good you had koobface, facebook backwards, it usually comes from facebook. Is part of a botnet. Very nasty bug, I would use another clean machine and change all your passwords because part of what it does is get all that info. You can google koobface and read the wiki on it.
I think you should go to LzD forum and run some special scans to make sure you are fully clean.
You need to go there, register, and post your own new thread in the malware removal area. The team will help you step by step. Post your logs there as you did here.
I am there also, if you need assistance let me know. With this kind of infection it is best to be overly through.

Here is a link that might be useful: LzD

Will do, see you there.

Just a quick question: we have 4 computers at work; all connected. Is it possible this trojan came from one of the other pc's because it's a network?
