The exploits are something in JBIG2. It counts 29 entries in the online pdf exploit scanner utilities I used.

VirusTotal said the file was clean on all measures.

I have noticed blocked attempts at contacting .adobelogin.com, data.adobe.io and armmf.adobe.com on my PiHole.

Windows defender picks up nothing. Malwarebytes picks up nothing.

It has stopped me from accessing Adobe servers, unless I use a VPN. I cannot open Acrobat.

There is nothing useful online about removal.

I have an image of my machine that I can restore from. This is using Paragaon data recovery pro.

I have used system restore and the issue persists.

I have restored from an image from weeks ago. The issue persists.

I have attached a snapshot of my PiHole blocking.

I cannot open Adobe creative essentials nor acrobat etc unless I use a VPN. I cannot even access adobe on the web.

Thank you for any input. Please, please help - I do not want to reinstall Windows on the 2 machines it executed on.

Apologies on the title. I cannot find the edit function. It should read ..."and now I have been infected with exploits."

Unfortunately, as you have replayed to your own topic, the topic must be closed as it would likely go unnoticed by helpers who are looking for topics that have only a single post.

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.


We need to know what's running on your computer so we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.

This topic will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:
  • FRST.txt
  • Addition.txt
  • Details of your problems.

If for any reason you can't run FRST, please let us know in your post.
