Default Lowest find for me yet

My first 3 out of 38 on Virustotal.

The worst part is that this wasn't a same-day removal. The client was infected on the 18th, so this is a 2-day old (minimum, perhaps older) file and only THREE companies got it?

Way to drop the ball, EVERYONE.

The "gen" part probably means generic which means it was only detecting a part of the malware. Basically it would have zero chance of stopping/removing it if that's the case. Obviously I'm not surprised a bit since I'm always bitching about how useless anti-malware packages are. People would rather believe the marketing and pretend they're safe. Ignorance is bliss I guess.

I can't complain too much though. If these companies were competent I'd lose out on quite a bit of money.

Oh, definitely. It just bugs me that only one company's generic code caught this one. The virus-writers are winning.

EXE infectors like this scare the living daylights out of me, because they make it far more difficult to fix the system without a wipe, something I've become awesome at.

Now I've got to go through and enumerate which programs need to be reinstalled, and try and replace core Windows files with the correct versions.

What a bloody headache.
