Anti-Spyware

Spyware is software that aims to gather information about a person or organization without their knowledge and that may send such information to another entity without the consumer's consent, or that asserts control over a computer without the consumer's knowledge; it has also come to include programs that engage in various kinds of electronic fraud. Anti-spyware is software that removes or blocks that software; some common vendors include Malwarebytes, McAfee, Spybot-Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware and BitDefender.

I'm having some PC troubles. I have a total of 3 hard drives connected. The other 2 hard drives stores my videos, pictures etc. I ran NOD32 and Malwarebytes and they both said I was infected with Virus.Win32.Neshta. I noticed that I couldn't launch Google Chrome then VLC started giving me errors and my videos wouldn't play. I reformatted my hard drive and did a fresh install of Windows 10. After I connected back my other 2 hard drives and started re installing everything, I got a message from Windows Defender saying "something" "malicious" was blocked. I ran full scans with NOD32, Malwarebytes and Windows Defender. NOD32 thinks that almost everything, even files that I know are safe, thinks its a Virus.Win32.Neshta. I didn't have problems like this a week ago so I'm trying to figure out where this is coming from? I guessing its from 1 of the other hard drives but really don't know what to look for. Has anyone else experienced something like this? Strange.

I'm looking at Cylance for my malware solution. We're all set to go with Malwarebytes. I'm confident in the latter being a worthy adversary for all the risk at here. But Cylance was brought up recently and I wonder if anyone has used it and what they think of it as a viable solution.

Hi There,

For the past few weeks users on my network and users they typically email have been complaining about receiving a lot of spam from our users.  I have gone around to every computer and ran malware cleaning tools such as malwarebytes, superantispyware, ccleaner, adwcleaner, antivirus and so on.  I have found many problems and removed them but the spam will stop for a few days then suddenly come back with a ton of emails.  Our email is hosted by an outside company like godaddy and it is pop.  We don't have a good firewall yet so i can't scan the logs of the firewall.  Is there another way to scan the network to detect which pc has the spambot infection and do you know how to remove the virus.

We use Symantec Endpoint Protections (currently v12.1.6) on our end user PC's. Remote users connect in remotely via Checkpoint SSL VPN.

We are testing SEP v14, which was released in November, and have a group of testers with it installed.  Now remote testers have reported (and we've verified/replicated) an issue where the "Endpoint Compliance Scanner report" fails that the Anti-Virus rule fails (Portal administrator requires you to have Symantec antivirus running and updated within the last 2 weeks). Another failure is similar for an Anti-Spyware rule.

This works fine with SEP v12.x, and the Checkpoint Network Extender version is 7.01.0000.  Screen shots are attached.

Has anyone run into this one yet?


Thank you,
Kevin

My domain controller continuously tries to access the same external IP address.  it is alerting my anti-malware program with several alerts.  I run scans with both the anti-malware and antivirus programs but neither finds anything.  The alert says it is coming from the domain controller using dns.exe.  I need to know where i can look on the DC to find the source that is trying to access this IP.

Guys,

for those that are using Trend Micro to protect their corporate file servers, I would like to know if the global setting above is generally used. The documentation says it increases cpu load and scanning times. Would love to know what other guys do in their systems. Is it safe to run ? Has it given you any problem ?

Thanks!
