Infection of Win32-Luder.A on multiple machines

Unread postby f1maniac » August 20th, 2008, 7:47 am


I noticed that at least 2 of my machines are infected, but lets start with the most important one for now. I have run AVG and bitdefender and found many hundreds of infected EXE files. I ran bitdefender in safemode and it was able to disinfect many of the EXEs but I wanted help in eliminating the problem.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi f1maniac,
Sorry for the delay in answering your request.
We have had more logs than we could handle in a timely manner.

Run MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
Please download the Installer and save to your desktop.

  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to both Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • If necessary, start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location, and post the contents in your reply.

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
