SysRescue is not currently available as a stand-alone tool. It's part of ESET's desktop and server products.

Does the ESETSirefef removal tool fix the junctions created by the new variant in the Windows Defender and/or Microsoft Sercurity Client directory?

Thanks Piotr, for the provided links to the other free security products that ESET offers. I have long known of the fantastic ESET Online Scanner, of which I use to scan any new install, re-install or a new computer with, once all updates/apps are installed. Most of the time, something is quarantined during this first scan. Though I never delete the items until I know for certain that it's unneeded. I did know of the SysRescue (recent AIK package install required) & SysInspector already. The stand alone tools, I wasn't aware of.

 

And many Thanks to ESET for providing them. There's no such thing as "too many" virus/malware cleaners & if one only has one available computer, it's good to keep as many current emergency apps as the user deems reasonable. Some stubborn malware requires more than one tool for discovery/removal. I have personally seen this on several occasions.

Yes the ESETSirefefCleaner will not only correct the junctions/symbolic links which Sirefef puts in Windows Defender/Microsoft Security Essentials, but it will also repair the services which Sirefef removes from a system.

Thanks for the info James. The KB article for removing Sirefef has recently been updated and the above info may also be added into the article soon.

Very nice!  I look forward to using it....well...as much as someone can look forward to having an infected system I guess.   :D  Thank you for checking into that.

Hello Trooper,

 

sadly there is no information, what kind of malware are we talking of.

There is described heuristic detection based on exploiting particular vulnerability, which can be possibly exploited by any kind of malware.

 

I would recommend you to use ESET SysRescue to scan the system offline.

In case it detects something from this list use appropriate tool.

 

Please let us know the result.

See link provided

 

hxxp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms04-013

 

After update or KB checked to be installed: See below :

Threat Assessment Wild
  • Wild Level: Low
  • Number of Infections: 0 - 49
  • Number of Sites: 0 - 2
  • Geographical Distribution: Low
  • Threat Containment: Easy
  • Removal: Easy

 

Removal is stated as easy from Symantec

 

Then see this :hxxp://www.pchell.com/virus/bloodhound.shtml

 

Removal should be as easy as clearing all your temp folders.

 

Also, please still report back of what variant or flavor Eset states this vulnerability is :)

 

Good luck.
