Hi Experts,

our firewall alerts me about connection to this IP: 204.79.197.200
It also alerts me about KRONOS Virus.
More and more machines are affected.

Can you help me with this ?
What kind of IP is it ?
What is KRONOS ?
How to get rid of it ?

The mentioned IP belongs to microsoft. So it might be legit communication. Which ports are involved on the PCs and on the remote site?

The KRONOS Virus hides itself inside the registry and does not leave infected files on the PC.
It can, steal passwords, record keystrokes and install other malware from the internet.

Ok I also checked, this IP is from Microsoft.
But why it is in combination with KRONOS ?

Portnumbers may shed some light. So which ports on the IP the clients with the virus are trying to access?

What does a local AV-Scan, on a PC the firewall reports, show?

You should be more concerned to the local IP address which is trying to make connection with Kronos Virus on Microsoft IP.

Find the system and scan it, it might be infected already.
