Anti-virus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect from malicious browser helper objects (BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious layered service providers (LSPs), dialers, fraud tools, adware and spyware. Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam, scam and phishing attacks, online identity theft (privacy), online banking attacks, social engineering techniques, Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), botnets and DDoS attacks.

We use Exchange 2010 and have VIPRE Spam app that is supposed to move spam to a new folder designated 'SPAM'. It is identifying it as spam but not creating the SPAM folder or moving messages to said spam folder. Support with the company says its because Autodiscover is not working properly.

Their initial response is to fix any errors under test-outlookWebServices before they can offer further assistance. I have 0 issues with OWA and have 0 issues with mobile devices. 0 issues with Desktop Outlook clients yet they tell me that I must correct the error listed in the detail before they can assist. So I am looking to resolve the error, that isn't causing any problems, without creating new ones.

The error is   The certificate for the URL https://SERVER.DOMAIN.local/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml is incorrect
 . For SSL to work, the certificate needs to have a subject of SERVER.DOMAIN.local, instead the subject found is DOMAIN.com. Consider correcting service discovery, or installing a correct SSL certificate.

Obviously I cant get an alt for .local so I am trying to identify in my configuration where the system is referencing the .local domain.

internalURI is currently https://SERVER.DOMAIN.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml
internal URL is currently https://SERVER.DOMAIN.com/ews/exchange.asmx
externalURL is currently https://SERVER.DOMAIN.com/ews/exchange.asmx

I suppose it could be an IIS/Cert issue and not just an exchange config issue. Just looking for more …

A Windows Server 2008 R2 installation has been infected with a Trojan horse that has encrypted files with the *.rapid extension.  The server had Avast for Business installed.  An AVG rescue CD was made and ran multiple times to eliminate instances of the Trojan horse.  After four times, the server is labeled clean from the AVG rescue CD.  I then uploaded two *.rapid files to nomoreransom.org and it came back saying that there was no fix for this.  Does anybody know of a trusted decryption software that can correct this problem?  I can attach a file if requested.

I ran a virus scan during the night, and received this result in the morning:

Trojan: BAT/Stravdri.A
Serious
2017-10-30
This program is dangerous and runs commands from an attacker.

I deleted it and restarted the computer whereupon the computer worked much faster. But now I am not sure if there is an issue again, begin to get slow sometimes.

I have a large project I am working with that has a tight deadline and have no time to run more thorough virus searches. So I wonder if there is any quick measure I can take? My normal AV software (MSE) takes more than 24 hours to run a thorough scan with. Malwarebytes Pro did not find anything when I run it two days ago.

I had someone use my credit card a few weeks ago, and had it blocked by the bank. Lost around 300 USD. It is possible it could be related to this.

I use Windows 7 Home 64-bit.

I have been informed by Spamhaus that the IP address we use for corporate email has communicated with a known spam site and is either infected by, or NATing for, a computer that is infected by the S_Gozi trojan / downloader.

It states that the infection is extremely difficult to detect and is not seen by most commercial AV or EndPoint protection suites.

I have been told to program the Sonic-wall TZ215 to stop all traffic to sites outside the US.  We have never done this before.  Not sure how to setup the sonic-wall for that purpose.  I know this virus does not use the standard port 25 for smtp traffic it uses port 80 which i cannot block.  It is extremely difficult to find so i am trying to stop its connections at the firewall level to stop it communicating.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi All,
I have a client with the same question/issue as described: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28694856/Chrome-browser-extension-virus-malware-and-unable-to-uninstall.html
Under the solution provided by Exilir2, I am having trouble isolating the folder in: c:\windows\system32\  WebSecurity  is located. The EU cannot recall when it was installed or when he started having issues.

I have followed the process outlined to manually delete Chrome extensions as described here, but WebSecurity keeps coming back:

Hello,

Has anyone used the Azure Information Protection scanner for scanning files on internal networks?  We are looking to use this for identifying all Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to meet the General Data Protection Regulation that goes into effect May 25, 2018.  

I am looking for feedback on anyone's experience with this.

Thanks,
Roger

We're in the process of changing our AV protection over our whole company. We're highly virtualized in both server and desktop.  Currently we running View 6.2 with non-persistent (NP) desktops, but soon will be moving to 7.x and instant clones (IC).

We decided to abandon the agentless products using NSX because we get more protection with the agent-based ones. However, it "seems" that the ones we've selected to look at haven't quite figured out how to work with NP or IC desktops as well as they claim.

The bottom line for me is has anyone here actually used an agent-based product with NP desktops and more importantly with IC desktops where it just worked like it was supposed to work?  I really only interested in real world experience for this question.  Thanx...

I'm getting intermittently high CPU usage on Win2k8r2 Standard server.  just a little while ago I wasn't even able to rdp in.  my main issue is that we have Symantec Backup Exec on this server and the jobs are failing or going really slow most likely due to this high CPU usage.  At times it would be at 90 - 100%.  

About this physical server:
Dell PowerEdge 6950
The C: drive is in a Raid-1 configuration and is either SAS or SATA drives.  
Dual-Core AMD Opteron Processor 8218 2.59 GHz (2 processors)
12 GB RAM, 64-bit OS
Raid controllers: two Perc 5/1 Adapters and two Perc H800 Adapters (all attached to 4 Quantum tape drives)

I'm thinking that this may be a hard drive issue.  Or it could be a driver issue with the RAID controllers.  What is the best way I can go about diagnosing the hard drives on a server?  I've already contacted Symantec and Quantum and I don't believe it is their issue. Quantum firmware and drivers are completely updated to latest version.  Any other feedback would be helpful?

We value your feedback.

Take our survey and automatically be enter to win anyone of the following:
Yeti Cooler, Amazon eGift Card, and Movie eGift Card!

The user has a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013)

They accepted a bogus phone call from "Apple Tech Support" and allowed them to run all sorts of 'diagnostics and repairs'   However, they didn't pay any money.

In their defense, they had been recently informed by their bank that some sort of Trojan horse was affecting their computer, and they mistakenly assumed that this was a follow up call.

Apple support had them install the latest version of MalwareBytes Mac, and nothing has been found after the initial scan and cleanup.

For peace of mind, are there other applications that can check for hidden threats?

Thanks.

Hi, I have been trying to delete Norton for about three hours and can't do it.  Windows 10 won't do it nor Revo Uninstaller.  The computer locks up when the Norton window shows up and says to wait for it to uninstall.  After about ten minutes I finally hit the button which turns the computer off and then I turn it back on.

Any ideas on how I can get rid of it?
Thanks

A customer of mine with a Windows 2016 Server got a ransomware infection this Monday.  Turned out to be the Xorist.  I got the Emsisoft decrypter tool and ran it with success and then decrypted all the files on the server.  

With that part done, scanned the machine with Webroot (installed, don't know how it didn't detect this) windows defender, sophos second opinion, TDDSKiller,  superantispyware  and malwarebytes.  a trojan was found in a zip file that was in a profile that was created by an external source.

I went through all my usual programs to look for anything further (process explorer, tcpview, netstat etc but when it got to process monitor i narrowed a lot of network traffic coming from the lsass.exe process, and it was going to random IP's (gamertalk.com.br)
snapshot of the process monitor
I could not get this traffic to subside, and it eventually crashed the server after 6-8 hours.

I took away the servers DNS settings as well as the gateway setting and this continued to flow in process monitor.

Am I reading this program incorrectly?
How else can I go about trying to find what is making this traffic?

Thank you.
