Hi JoeBlack,

It did. Although my friend was running the latest versions of MBAM and Avast, this nasty piece of work completely nuked his computer.

That is why I have gone to so much effort in trying to provide Avast and MBAM with a sample. My friend was devastated due to the loss of valuable data. Moreover, the blood, sweat and tears involved in reformatting and reconstructing his computer.....

That agony I would like to spare other Avast and MBAM users. Hopefully Avast will now be able to specifically identify this virus and kill it.

I would again like to stress, as per my previous post, that the blame lies with my friend and I. Avast does a brilliant job and is my number one choice for anti-virus software. Our stupidity cannot be made up for.

Best regards,

Avastfan1

Hi Alwil Avast Team,

Could somebody please confirm receipt of the file I sent wyskq6lt.333.exe?

Were you able to analyse, classify and create a specific identification signature for this nasty piece of work?

Kind regards,

Avastfan1

Hi Avastfan1

Thank you for your quick response.I just wondering,Comodo with D+ could stop this,if get passed by Avast and MBAM,or whatever AV?
I'd like to think that it could do it. It's a HIPS after all.

Sorry for your friend's computer  :'(

Hi JoeBlack40,

Unfortunately, I am not qualified enough to answer that question. One of the experts on this board will definitely be able to give you some wise words with regards to Comodo and D+.

All I can confirm is that it got through Avast and MBAM on my friend's computer.

Sorry I could not be of more help.

Best regards,

Avastfan1

Wow seem rather like a music which's name is in a language my computer can't support when converted and renamed
When you try to see that name again in a computer which support that language it looks like that!

If you don't allow it to run, d+ would stop it.
Depends on user behavior. ;)

It's not just a free ad,you know....for whatever reason,my Avast doesn't play well with OA,i've got some BSOD too...and with Outpost,web surfing is painfully slow,even with Outpost's web guard disabled....PC Tools fw,i don't like it,because it doesn't have a terminate option,for active programs....so.....Comodo is the best choice,at least for me.
