  1. optiads-1.6.2[1].swf found by Defender from uTorrent


    Hi,

    I need an advice and a little help.

    Yesterday Defender alerted me with three malware named: "optiads-1.6.2[1].swf".

    They were in the Explorer cache, "AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Low\IE".

    Since I don't use a not sandboxed browser the only source of them should be utorrent:

    uTorrent downloading virus (Exploit:SWF/Meadgive) - Troubleshooting - µTorrent Community Forums

    It should be an ad inside utorrent that rotate during the day. But a malicious ad.

    Defender deleted them, and I clean the cache and the computer seem to be totally OK.

    But, I need an advice... I have a restore point of the day before, that I would not use because Yesterday I made some changes in my OS.

    IT's better that I use the restore point and uninstall forever utorrent or i can stay calm, since Defender found them and I can continue to use my pc without restore anything?

    :)

  3. malware

    Widows Defender is popping up claiming it has "Found Some Malware and is deleting it." Earlier it had found SWF/Meadgive - but I traced and got rid of it as Defender didn't. Now when Defender claims it has found Malware and is getting rid of it - I
    check and find no history of this in Defender, nothing in quarantine, nothing period! Yet Windows Defender continues to pop up and claim there is malware found - though it doesn't show it when checked. This is driving me crazy! No other program to detect
    and deal with malware now shows SWF/Meadgive or any other malware and think Windows Defender is not working correctly. As such am going to close it down for a while and let my firewall and virus/malware programs take care of it.

    No, you do not need to use system restore, but you should get rid of utorrent, it is not what it used to be.

    Many people would suggest staying away from torrents as the potential for d/l ing malware is pretty high. Even legit programs are likely to carry hidden installers that can put some unwanted items on your computer.

    If you want a particular program, best to go to the official website/source to get it.

  6. Staying away from utorrent is what i will do since now.

    So i can definitely dont need to worry for that flash file caught by defender in cache?

    I can be sure that a malware didnt dò something bad? A normal Defender full scan could be enough?
