Combofix infected

Bad news, big news. Thanks for the heads up, Hazelnut.

 

Edit:

The Bleeping Computer download link is down, but there are still some sites that allow a download of very recent versions of Combofix.

I don't know when the infection got in, so I regard them all as unsafe till further notice.

Thing is the people who are likely to have to download and use it are infected and may have compromised av's running anyway.

 

Also users under instruction from Malware Removal Experts are told to disable their anti virus before running it.

This is why it is important to have known-good & tested offline backups. Stuff gets out of hand? ..just restore!

 

Unfortunately a lot of users out there are not as prepared and experienced as you are.

 

But let's not get into that here as this thread is primarily a heads-up thread about combofix.
