Fake virus scanner - can't get on the internet...

Post by Jay Cee on Tue 25 Jan 2011, 4:50 am

First topic message reminder :

Good afternoon. I got some random popup and it automatically dled a fake virus scanner. Whenever I try to open up mozilla or explorer a fake page comes up saying I am infected blah blah blah. I can't access any sites at all. I am on this site now from my work laptop. I am running MWB on the infected laptop but not sure how I can post the results. Also I tried sending myself a link to the combofix download via AIM but even that won't work (the link not aim). I also have OTL and hijackthis on the infected laptop. I have no idea what to do since I can't access any websites. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello.

Macs tend not be to so open to malware as malware writers target Windows more, but just install a good AV and you should be alright.
