For the second time in ten days, my personal workstation has been infected utilizing drive-by installs. Yes, I am fully patched, running Firefox to browse. And yes, I have A/V software, also fully patched.

In addition to the above findings by MalwareBytes Anti Malware, which I highly recommend purchasing, I found some porno shortcuts on my desktop.

DNS resolution had been affected, preventing me from getting to sites such as Windows Update, Avast!, Symantec, etc.

Yes, this is a bad one. So for the second time in a week, I am restoring my machine from backups. Thank you,! This is just how I wanted to spend my day off!


Looks like MalwareBytes Anti Malware has successfully got me running again. I can't recommend this package enough. Thanks MBAM!
