Are you infected?
« on: April 07, 2009, 03:37:48 pm »
It is not uncommon for malware to have self protection measures in place to prevent removal. Such tricks as blocking access to security websites, killing beneficial security tool processes/services, and preventing Windows Updates from running are quite widespread today.  They are definitely signs of infection but they are not unique to Conficker. 

Take a look at the following Eye Chart

If you fall into category 2 or 3 (those in red) please read http://spywarehammer.com/simplemachinesforum/index.php?topic=88.0, so we can determine what type of infection you have and help you remove it.

Hi mrrockford,

You didn't lock this topic so I felt authorized to post... if my post isn't convenient, feel free to delete it, of course.

I just wanted to say that the Conficker Eye Chart appears to have been designed by Joe Stewart ( http://www.joestewart.org/?p=26 ) who is being appointed Director of Malware Research with SecureWorks.
