Why won't virus scans find Saser?
Posted on 2004-11-05
I am getting the following error reports everytime I go online;
The error: "C:\Windows\system32\lsass.exe terminated unexpectantly with status code -1073741819"
LSA Shell (Export Version) has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for any inconvience.
The system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. The shutdown was initiated by NT Authority\SYSTEM.
The system process "C:\winnt\system32\lsass.exe' terminated unexpectedly with status code 128. The system will now shutdown and restart.
From what I have read, this is symptomatic of the sasser worm. I have updated Norton, downloaded and run stinger, FXsasser and Fix balst but none of them find sasser or stop the problem. I ran all these with System restore disabled as your open question answers suggested.
Will thje problem stop if I switch to broadband?
