About an hour ago, I ran into an odd fake AV malware, and obviously, started breaking out the tools to clean it out. Probably a driveby from some bad advertisement.
Before I start anything though, I do have plenty of experience cleaning this sort of crap out...Mainly through Linux and ClamAV on a CD as usually, Windows won't boot properly/won't allow me to run programs without jumping through hoops.
This one though seemed dumb enough to be killed by task manager and never came back. Usually, I get warning messages all over and immediately, things like task manager start closing. Even my normal AV program didn't get shut down.
So, some antimalware definition updating and an hour and a half later, MalwareBytes seems to have found "it".
I'm thinking it was just small fry and I got lucky. Any thoughts?
Oh and actually, it's completely gone now. MalwareBytes+SAS wiped it clean.
