Infection Sirefef type

Unread postby tionfiul » January 2nd, 2012, 4:00 pm


I downloaded a malicious keygen and got a bad Sirefef type virus.

The keygen was at hxxp://ahead-adobeyo.servegame.com/getfilez/Keygen.AV_MP3_Player_Morpher_4.0.83.exe

The files that Essentials keeps detecting are in C:\Documents and Settings\adrian\Local Settings\Application Data\4b737391\U\00000001.$

There are about 5 files in that folder that keep regenerating themselves after deletion (manual and with essentials).

I cannot run DDS, but I can run Hijackthis. This is the hijackthis log:
