    Got Hit by "Avanish" malware, missed by W10 security


    In the past some folks came hard on me for pointing out the deadly security
    ineffectiveness of W10. Here is a proof.

    A malware by the name "Avinash" brought the speed of my PC to a crawl
    WINDOWS SECURITY ran twice and declared the system sound safe.

    I was not satisfied so I initiated my own Malware Software protection namely
    HITMAN PRO, in minutes it detected and quarantined the Malware AVANISH
    and its roots to include an EXE file : "Anachronism.ksee".

    At this point I was happy , but noticed the Malware still showing up in my startup list ,
    though I have disabled them ( Nine of the same name Avinash), still showing up in my task list , Hitman Pro announced they are disabled.

    My questions for the guru that I wish can help are:

    1. Is there a way to remove the malware name from the "startup list".
    2. How to stop/eliminate the ,Malware (Avinash) in/from the process list.
    3. How to search and delete any hidden traces even inactive
    4. Did Anyone (MS included ) raise a flag about this Malware threat?

    The following are the remnant names of the malware "Avinash":

    Avinash

    buaqIjva ( it could be a capital "I" or a lower case "L")

    Anachronism .. and others that got rid by Hitman Pro .

    I did Google "Avinash".. but there was no mention to any Malware, but revealed a
    SW security researcher by the name "Avinash" .

    :)

    Manufacturers embed malware in their smartphones

    There is an important distinction there. Adware != malware.

    That list is complete bunk. I have or have had several of the Android devices listed and not one of them EVER had any level of malware. A few of them had a few pieces of bloatware, but that's not the same and all were completely harmless. And as each device was rooted, debloated and then properly secured, yeah, just not buying this rubbish.
