Strange Downloads

Post by jimbo8098 on 5th February 2010, 11:52 pm

I keep getting downloads from weird places.

I got one asking me to download and save a file named "ad" of course I didnt but I am still worried not only by this one incident but the fact that there has been one or two other occasions of this , all of them i have cancelled.

Another file i can remember the name of is "delivery".

I dont think it has infected since i ran malwarebytes with no infected files (I manulally checked the log and there was no infections) using a full scan...

You may not post in the malware forums while you are in the Academy.

Topic moved.

Please download the latest version of Kaspersky GetSystemInfo (GSI) from Kaspersky.fr and save it to your Desktop.
  • Please close all other applications running on your system.
  • Please double click GetSystemInfo.exe to open it.
  • Click the Settings button.
  • Set it to Maximum
  • IMPORTANT! Then please click Customize - choose Driver / Ports tab and
  • Uncheck Scan Ports.
  • Click Create Report to run it.
  • It will create a zip folder called GetSystemInfo_XXXXXXXXXXXXXX.zip on your Desktop. Please upload the folder to Kaspersky GSI Parser and click the Submit button.

Please copy and paste the url of the GSI Parser report (not the log) in your next reply.

Sorry for that , I thought you just meant not to post answers in the malware forums.

I just wanted to know if this COULD be a risk. It seems very strange. Ill look into it.
