    If you haven't come across a thread i wrote just yesterday here it is: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...2251-do-not-open-senuke-what-ever-you-do.html


    In summary, i got infected with a rootkit i think just from opening my fully licensed version of senuke.

    The site has been getting hacked lately with these iframed malware sites, we all thought it was fine when they cleaned it and were supposed to add extra security. Well they got infected again, and this time when i opened up senuke i downloaded some shit that kept reproducing its self and spreading, i was forced to format my PC.

    So just as a warning, if you own senuke or thinking about going to any of their sites, i wouldn't until we know 100% that they are completely secure, which with hackers always finding new and imaginative ways around shit, it's prolly impossible!

    Anyway, my free version of AVG didn't stop me from getting this rootkit.

    Right now im looking at Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 which i see a lot of people here talking about. Its not free but im thinking about downloading the free version.

    Do any of you have the free version? Is it working well for you? Or will i need to find a working cracked full version?

    I aint paying like $100 for this when i know there are free programs out there that are even better than paid. I thought that was the case with AVG, i guess not. I think it might have been because i had no firewall turned on. AVG free doesn't have a firewall, and i turned the windows firewall off.

    Any suggestions for Kaspersky or any other great virus, rootkit, and firewall protection would be very much appreciated.

    How about loading a linux version as your main OS and running windoze in a VM when it's needed? Keep a backup copy of VM and just revert if you get a virus.

    Do you use no script? I would think I-framed sites wouldn't be able to load unless you allowed them. Or maybe I misunderstand how they work.

    Try Avira Antivir (free version), has been working great for me so far. Great reviews on the net as well. There is a also a paid premium and security suite. Check out the link below and give it a try.

    if u r using windows xp then it's time to move on to windows 7, it's a bit more secure. install some good firewall like comodo free version and antimalware ( malwarebyte or something similar). I find that eset antivirus is lot better than other antivirus. I am saying this after experiencing 10s of other popular antivirus in last 7-8 years. other thing that can help many times is keeping ur host file in system32/etc folder readonly.

    or u cud trying running unconventional software (mostly related to IM) in virtual machine. If u r using windows 7, u can install windows xp mode, it comes free but u need at least 512 mb of spare ram that u can allocate to virtual pc for windows xp mode.

    But if u get ur main pc somehow infected after all these precautions and no conventional security software is helping then before formatting ur pc, give "combofix" a try. But it's best to use this tool under some kind of supervision from some support forum.

    *Nothing* would have protected you.

    Most rootkits like the one you describe use an exploit in an old JRE (java runtime environment). When jaba updates it doesn't uninstall previous vesions as they're not always backwards compatible etc.

    Thats how they got in, nothing you could do.

    I wrote a thread on it a few months ago to warn people here. Guess no one took the warning =/. Please see http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ing-new-blackhat-virus-own-up.html#post954462

    You didn't have to format, just malwarebytes or combofix would have sorted it out in about an hour or so.

    Don't waste money or time on overpriced and overvalued anti-virus software.

    Common sense will always beat any of them =]

    Yer, but who'd of thought the senuke program would get hacked and infect users with this shit.

    Im pretty sensible with it comes to downloading shit, but i had no idea that the program senuke which i have been using for 3 months now would get infected and be able to install a rootkit on my system :(

    Rookit on a PC? In my world, a rootkit can only be installed and or exists on a Unix system usually a server. Rootkits dont exist on a PC's. What you have or had is something else mislabeled and called a rootkit. Maybe this is your own terminology for a Trojan but its not called rootkit on a PC.

    NOD32 (don't cracked, use the license updater that is available in taringa), spybot search & destroy and common sense. Oh, and it's windows, you are going to get infected every two years.

    I've always used ESET NOD32 and its really great.

    I have linux now though (ubuntu) and it works so differently. There are eye-candy versions of the built in firewall thingy that you can download. But otherwise I think nothing. But if you know linux inside out then you can mess with the ip tables to your liking.

    I agree that Avira has been working fine with this virus crap
