Question: new malware attack method by email adobe PDF with embedded word macro

watch out for this new malware attack method by email
http://myonlinesecurity.co.uk/invoice-519658-colin-fox-pdf-malware/

This email contains a genuine PDF which has embedded scripts that will infect you. So far none of the automatic analysis tools can find any malicious content but it is trying to send multicast messages.

I am being told that this evil pdf when opened in adobe reader drops a word document containing macros, so DO NOT SAVE OR OPEN THIS PDF FILE: Just delete the email and any attachment as soon as it appears in your inbox. There appear to be several different versions of the PDF malware dropper although all are named the same and every copy that I have seen is the same file size ( 23kb) The malicious Macro inside the dropped word document ( VirusTotal) from one of the malicious PDFs downloads and executes -> hxxp://bepminhchi.com/83/61.exe ( virus total). There will almost certainly be different download locations depending on which version of the PDF you originally received.

Luckily enough Adobe reader in recent versions has Protected view automatically enabled and unless you press the button to enable all features, you will be safe from this attack
If you do enable all features, then you have a second chance to protect yourself, by pressing either cancel or never allow opening files of this type on the pop up warning. Pressing allow WILL almost certainly automatically open the word doc and run the malicious macro so infecting you. Make sure Adobe reader ( or any other PDF reader software) is updated to the latest version to protect you. Older versions are vulnerable to these attacks. If using Adobe make sure you uncheck any additional offerings of security scans/Google chrome or toolbars that it wants to include in the download

Preferred Solution: new malware attack method by email adobe PDF with embedded word macro

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi guys,

I have a question that has stumped me so far. Here is the scenario: I am dealing with a spreadsheet that has several tabs on it. In each tab, there are several word, powerpoint, and pdf documents that are embedded as objects. My task is to write a macro, that will for each document (keep in mind its an embedded object that needs to be opened), open it with the appropriate program, and save it using a pre-assigned name (the name of the column heading and the row it is in) to a predetermined folder path. This process needs to be duplicated about 200 times. I'm not sure if this is even possible, but I know enough about vba to believe that it is. I've been working on it since yesterday, and I can't seem to tie the pieces together. Can anyone help on this?

Thanks!

I have a word document that includes a form the user must fill in. I want to create a button that will do all of the following:
1. Update all fields
2. Attach the updated word document to an email
3. Enter an address I have stored in the macro into the To field of the email.

I have one module which does the first part:
Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim oStory As Range
For Each oStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
oStory.Fields.Update
If oStory.StoryType <> wdMainTextStory Then
While Not (oStory.NextStoryRange Is Nothing)
Set oStory = oStory.NextStoryRange
oStory.Fields.Update
Wend
End If
Next oStory
Set oStory = Nothing
End Sub

I found that if I add this to the before End Sub it attaches the updated Word document to an email:
Application.Options.SendMailAttach = True 'Or False
ActiveDocument.SendMail

However, I can't figure out how have it put a specific address into the To field of the document.

So I tried another tact. I have the email address as a hyperlink in the document, and set a bookmark at the hyperlink. Then I created a module that will go to the bookmark and open the hyperlink. However, this will not add the document as an attachment:

Sub Open_Hyperlink()
Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="hyperlink"
With ActiveDocument.Bookmarks
.DefaultSorting = wdSortByName
.ShowHidden = False
End With

Hi,

I'm trying to allow the user of a power point slide to change the value of cells in an embedded excel worksheet while in presentation mode (and therefore allow automatic calculation of a formula elsewhere on the embedded spreadsheet). An example is attached. What I'd like to do is to make the embedded excel spreadsheet copy the value the user has typed into the text box into the 'Input new value' column once a button is pressed ('recalculate' in the example).

It's probably straightforward, but I've not cut and paste to an embedded object before! Any help would be great!

While looking for a way to save embedded (as opposed to attached) pictures in Outlook, I came across this site: http://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/saveembeddedpictures.htm

The link goes to a set of instructions on how to create the macro that will save all embedded pictures in an Outlook email message. (The site owner is a Microsoft MVP for Office Systems ? Outlook, is MCSA + MCSE certified for Windows 2000 and has been working professionally with Exchange and Outlook systems since 1999.)

According to the site, "The code has been tested with Outlook 2003 on Windows XP and Outlook 2007 on Windows Vista but should work on previous versions as well." I did the instructions, and it worked for me on Outlook 2007, Windows 7 64 bit system.

While Microsoft figures out a way to do it easier than copy each picture > paste into Paint > save as a ".bmp", this should help.

Hi all

Excellent site! I know I should check for duplicate queries, but couldn't find the search feature as I'm new here and this is my first ever post...

I have two files 'Expenses Analysis' and 'Expenses Form' whereby the user fills out his / her expenses in the analysis file and then transcribes the summary figures into the form on other file, which is then sent off to the finance department.

I've created a simple macro that transcribes the figures between the files when they are both open, but I want it to be clever (=more fool proof) than that. I would like to embed the Expenses Form file into the analysis file, and get the macro to launch the file and enter the figures in one go. (I need to do it this way, rather than combine the functionality, as the Expenses Form is owned by another department and I can't unprotect it etc... ).

Sounds very simple, but I've trouble finding resources on it, as it seems people misuse this functionality for viruses and the like . If another could help me, I'd be much obliged!

I would like to find a way of launching Expenses Form from the Expenses Analysis file, bearing in mind that both files contain macros and a security warning pops up in between.

Kind regards

Neil

How do you keep a macro running until you reach the end of a page? Currently I just hold down the control or Alt keys. I have long documents so holding down the Alt + whatever key is not always practical.

Here is a sample macro. How do I make the macro run until the macro reaches (in this case) the top of the page?

I think the "do until" feature is used in the code but I do not know the syntax for "do until".

Code:
Sub DelimitBoldSentenceOnRightWithATab()
Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
Selection.Find.Font.Bold = True
With Selection.Find
.Text = "*"
.Replacement.Text = ""
.Forward = False
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
.Format = True
.MatchCase = False
.MatchWholeWord = False
.MatchWildcards = True
.MatchSoundsLike = False
.MatchAllWordForms = False
End With
Selection.Find.Execute
Selection.TypeText Text:=vbTab & vbTab
Selection.MoveUp Unit:=wdParagraph, Count:=1, Extend:=wdExtend
Selection.MoveLeft Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
Selection.TypeText Text:=vbTab & vbTab
Selection.MoveLeft Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=3
Selection.Find.ClearFormatting

End Sub

Thank you in advance for your replies.
 

Answer:Word Macro: How to keep macro running until end of page is reached

You can evaluate the current page number using the following property:

Selection.Information(wdActiveEndPageNumber)

Just use a loop and have it execute while Selection.Information(wdActiveEndPageNumber) = 1

Can you post your sample document?

However, whilst checking the system for any necessary patches required with Secunia PSI it highlighted I had an unsafe older version of Adobe 18 embedded within Internet Explorer. Try as I might I cannot update or uninstall this version of Adobe 18 embedded within IE.
Has anyone experienced a similar problem to this & if so is there a viable solution available?

If you are not a teacher or student, don't work in an eligible industry, and otherwise have zero insider contacts, where is the least expensive place to (legally) purchase Adobe software? I'd like/need CS5.5 Design Premium, but Newegg wants a coronary-inducing $1,800 and Amazon wants $1,600. At those prices, it would almost be cheaper to re-enroll at my local university for a class to quality for student pricing, but given my current work and home situation, that really isn't an option.

I fervently wish Adobe would institute a sane pricing model for home users, but I know that's not likely to happen in the foreseeable future. Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Purchasing Adobe software - cheapest (legal) method?

My wife recently took a web design class that required her to have CS5.5. I shopped around, and Amazon seemed like the cheapest from the places I found.

Sad thing is, even though she qualified for the "student edition", it was still $600. And thats a crazy amount of money to pay for software she's going to use for 3 months and never use it again (gotta love electives). Luckily, I pushed her to investigate further, and her school offered the suite through their Citrix servers at no charge, so we didn't have to pay it.

I recently had a graphic layout done by a third party, I previewed the file (.jpg) online although low resolution it was fine for the web.
Now I received the hi-res Adobe Illustrator files on CD and the layout is fine but there are about 5 embedded-linked images in the layout and they are jagged.
I tried the Sharpen>>>Unsharp Mask filter but it didn’t help much.
Am I missing a setting in Adobe Illustrator that needs to be set to show the files correctly?
Any suggestions???
 

Answer:Adobe Illustrator - Jagged embedded images..need help

Welcome to TSG.

It sounds like they were raster files that were too small and converted to vector with jagged edges. You might look in the help file for “aliasing” as it is “anti-aliasing” that smoothes out jaggies. If the files they are linked to are raster files you might be able to improve them by adding anti-aliasing to the conversion. If they are already vector files you might not have too much luck.

The reason I suspect they were taken from raster files is that you can blow up a vector file as much as you want without getting the jaggies.

Hello all,

I have been presented with a project that involves Forms that I am not able
to resolve.

Basically I have been asked to create a document template where other team
members can fill out a form that asks a series of questions, then to have
only the completed form results export to a new file.

I am aware that Word can export the form results to a text file, but when I
do this all of the questions that were on the original form are exported to
the new file.

What we are looking to achieve in the end:
If the end user is faced with 20 questions, but only 12 of the questions
pertain to the end users project, only the 12 completed form fields will
export to a new file.

I know that this should be possible with using a macro button to export the data, but that is where I need the help.

I tried searching for this exact situation, but I did not find any matches, hence the new thread.

Thank you in advance,

Hi,
Don't mind the curious ones, but I'm one of them. So anyway, almost one year ago now, the Word macro virus W97M/Marker.C was running rampant around Gordon College, with many teachers and students alike being infected. I was even infected with it thanks to one of my professors posting an assignment description document that had it. I was running AVG 9.0 at the time, and it was flagged many a time over. I think there were like six or so instances. My memory may be flaky, as my laptop has undergone many reformats since then, but what I do remember is trying to ignore AVG's warning, due to the fact that AVG has given me many false positives when I used it. The message Word gave me was that the document couldn't be opened because it wasn't available. But the strange part of that is that AVG had not removed anything from the file. I can think of two reasons why the file wouldn't run with the virus in it. Tell me which, if either, is correct. One is that Microsoft has since changed the macro format from 2003 and earlier versions of Word simply due to the many viruses that once existed for it, or two, that message was a very convoluted way of telling me that Windows 7 no longer supports Virtual device Drivers (*.vxd) as I was able to open the file after it had been cleaned up by Eset NOD32.

Answer:random curiosity about MS Word macro viruses and why (thank the Lord), they don't work in Word 2007/2010

I don't know the particulars of the macro virus you mention, but with Microsoft Office 2003, a significant change was implemented that effectively stopped the propagation of macro viruses.

Prior to Office 2003, macros were enabled by default, and opening a document with macros and auto-execute meant the macros were automatically executed (and thus the virus could infect and propagate).

With Office 2003, macro security was introduced. With a Microsoft Office 2003 default install, macros need to be signed with a certificate issued by a trusted root CA. Macros that are not signed will not be executed. Users have to explicitly lower the macro security level for unsigned macros to execute. Almost all macro viruses were unsigned.

I have a Word database file that is 16 columns wide and several hundred rows long.

With the database open:

1. My macro opens a new document (Which I’ll call the “Working Doc”)
2. Activates the database file
3. Captures the information from all the cells in row 1
4. Activates the Working Doc
5. Inserts a Word file at the end of the document based on the information in one of the cells. This file is composed of a couple of paragraphs and a table
6. Inserts the information gathered from the database file into the table
7. Activates the database file
8. Captures the information from all the cells in row 2
9. Activates the Working Doc
10. Inserts a different Word file at the end of the document based on the information in one of the cells. This file is also composed of a couple of paragraphs and a table. All of the inserted files are a couple of paragraphs and a table

Hi Folks - and Happy New Year to You!

You can class me as a 60 year old newbie!

I'm using version Adobe 7.0.

I written an e-book to publish on my web site, and can't get the darn thing to convert into a pdf file. Sometimes it works for some files -- sometimes it doesn't.

I suspect the problem is with my many embedded graphics. I have created Microsoft Powerpoint slides, and have cut and pasted them into my ebook as objects inserted between the paragraphs of text. I have compressed them within Word.

When converting from the "Convert to Adobe PDF" button in my Word Toolbar, it gets all the way through and finally has an error at the end saying: "an error occured while creating a temporary file; Word was unable to write some of the embedded objects due to insufficient memory or disk space"

I have Adobe set with a password to protect copying, and the Word file sizes are around 1 to 2 Mbs.

My computer is only a year old, and I have 23 Gb of free space.

I'm using Windows Professional XP and Word 2002

Unless that is a "throw-away" address (one you are using for this one time and then discarding it)-- don't put your address out so that all the spammers in the wold will have it as a confirmed address.

I don't know if it would help you or not-- (As I haven't used the security functions of .pdf) but a different (FREE) program MAY help you.

If you use the "Print Preview" (under <FILE> tab in WORD), are you able to see your document as you intended it to be viewed?? If so, then a program like "pdfCreator" could be used to produce your .pdf file.

pdfCreator installs as though it were a new printer on your system. When you go want to produce a .pdf file, you just select "PRINT", however, when the printing dialogue pops up, select pdfCretor as your printer. After a couple seconds there will be a dialogue to fill in and it will ask for the file name you wish to give your .pdf file.

If print preview shows the document correctly, the .pdf file created will be fine. This .pdf file will be usable just like any other .pdf file (again, the security issue is a feature I have not used for my purposes--- but pdfCreator-- and a few similar programs-- do a great job.)

Download pdfCreator here:

C:\users\your user name\appdata\roaming\Thunderbird

If you backup that folder, you are backing up your entire Thunderbird configuration, including emails and profile.

That folder is not to be confused with the Thunderbird program files per se, which are in C:\Program Files (x86).

The emails are actually buried in a subfolder of that Thunderbird folder, but it is good practice to back up the entire folder.

Confirm to your own satisfaction that your email is in fact somewhere in that folder and then just copy it somewhere--or have your backup application do it automatically.

Hi,

I recently got some dictionary software that came with a Word macro component. The software's quite old (it's the latest release - they don't make it anymore) and everything seems to install Ok, but when I try and run the Word Macro, I get a message saying that my Word version (2002 XP - I recently upgraded) can't run or convert the Word 2000 macro. (I think it's being a bit generous - the dictionary software was made in 1994 - more like Word 6 vintage)

There is a Word file on the dictionary software disk that seems to install the macro and toolbar button etc.

Is there something I can do to make the macro work?

Thanks

David

PS I'm not really up on my macro stuff, so please use simple language.

Hello,I got a macro online for sending emails given a condition. It works great if you have 1-2 entries that require email sending based on the condition set. But when it sends up to 10 mails daily to the same person it becomes kind of annoying.I will post the macro I use below, but first I want to say what I would like to do and don't know exactly how (I am a beginner at VBA language):--> I want to modify the macro so that for multiple entries as per the condition, it sends only 1 email with all the entries specified in body.The columns are:A - name of the person to send email toB+C - email and CC emailD - condition, if yes send email, if no don'tE - company nameF - current no.G - sector to be auditedH/I - date to begin / end auditJ/K - days left until beginning / end of the auditL - audit done: if yes, column D becomes no and greenAnd here is the macro I use:Sub audit()

I embedded an Excel Bar Chart in an MS Word doc (both Word & Excel are 2003 versions) - I placed a second bar chart in the MS document as a picture. Both charts have a parchment color for the plot area - and red colored bars. When I click on 'print preview' in the Word doc the plot color shows as parchment. However, when I print the Word doc the plot area prints as grey (although the red bars print as red). I've tried everything I can think of but the plot area still prints grey. {If I print the charts from Excel where they were created the color prints fine - parchment background.)

    I've got three Word 97 files, each with an Excel spreadheet in the top 2/3 of the page, with the rest of the page being regular Word text. THe font being displayed in the Excel portion appears crunched together, larger, and bolded. When I select the cells to edit it they are all set at Arial 10 pt. It looks fine when working in the cells, but as soon as I click out of that Excel frame the font reverts to the mess I first described.

    Is this something that I must live with or is there a setting somewhere that is causing this conversion?

    Those as old as me who remember Wordstar will have been used to being aboe to turn embedded commands and formatting on and off so that you could see why your document was behaving in a certain way.How can you get a similar capability in MS Word. Editing leaves hundreds of hidden commands embedded in a document and you only have to delete a small passage and find that you have deleted a closing command and all the formatting of subsequent paragraphs goes out the window.I am looking for something like the ability to see the underlying HTML on a web page.

    I've been producing reports for clients for several years where I check "Embed Fonts" under Options/Save because I use some fonts that don't exist on most clients' computers. All of the embedded fonts are TT (True Type).

    I recently had to reformat my HD and reinstall everything. I forgot about reinstalling the extra fonts, and it revealed something quite unexpected. I opened an old document that was supposed to contain the embedded fonts, and a font that I had used that was no longer on my PC (Jott 43) displayed with a substituted font (Times Roman).

    I can't reconcile my understanding of what "embedding" means and the font substitution; i.e., if the font was embedded when the document was created, why does it not display when the font itself is no longer present on the PC? What worries me is that if this happens on my PC, it is surely happening on the clients' PCs.

    Good afternoon,

    I have been presented with a task to embed an open-type font into a word document and can not get consistency when it is viewed on Machines that do not have the "embedded" font.

    Now you may be asking yourself, why would you want to do that? Why not use a true-type font (since we all know you can embed a TTF in a word doc) instead of open-type?

    The answer to these questions is simple. Our Firm hired an outside "designer" to create our new Company letterhead. The problem is, the designer works solely on the Mac platform and of coarse we are a windows shop, so naturally everything will be seamless and function right out of the box. When we received her designs they where in PDF format and so we (the IT department) where tasked to replicate this in Word. No problem we thought. Then we are told about the "Font" used (ITC-Franklin Gothic Std) and that we would have to purchase it from Adobe to make it work. Great, I have created many word documents with embedded fonts, this will be a snap. "Wrong" The hitch is for a 5 user license we had to spend $199.00. For us to be licensed to install this font on all of our workstation it will cost us about 3,000.00. This is a rip off (to me), so we attempted to create the document, embed the Open-type font and see what happens.
    The results are inconsistent but promising.

    So now I am seeking more advice about this. Has anyone had a similar issue?

    We have a problem here at work that no one has been able to figure out. I thought someone in here might have an idea:

    Our Budget Analyst print "Budget Books" every year. These are Word documents with embedded Excel Spreadsheet links. The links are set to update automatically, but we've tried manual etc. with no luck. The links to the spreadsheets are good and accurate, when you go into print preview everything shows up correctly.

    When you actually print the document, say it's a 9 page document, typically at least one of the pages will have either the wrong spreadsheet linked to it or there will be huge letters printed on top of eachother where the spreadsheet link should be.

    You go back to look at the document and it's fine, the print preview is still fine, the links are up to date and correct. I tried running a manual link update just before printing and this didn't fix it. The problem is not just one link, everytime you print it, it may jump around and just change where the spreadsheets are printed or put those big letters in different spots.

    We are printing to a HP 5si networked printer, NT 4.0 server, NT 4.0 workstations with 384 mb of RAM each.

    The only way we've been able to fix this is to have the budget analysts block, copy and paste their links again before printing.
    Or break the 9 page document (or however many pages) into 9 one page documents.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    thanks
     

    Answer:Printing Word Docs with Embedded Excel Links

    If I'm hearing you right, I've helped someone with this before. It's not the greatest, but it SHOULD work.

    I suspect that you are using, for instance, one workbook to link to. Office doesn't like using more than Sheet1 to integrate with other apps. For instance, if you do a mailmerge, you'll have fun getting it to link to sheet2.

    If these are financials of some sort, then I imagine that your ranges don't *change size* much. Good.

    Create a new workbook for each of the Excel *ranges* you want to put into the doc file. In THEM, paste links from your *real* workbook. Link your Word doc to each of these new workbooks. That way, one workbook per link. You *should* get better results. I helped someone else do this, and they got better results.

    Hi, hopefully someone can help me here. I have seen similar posts but these are several years old now and do not fully answer my query.
    I am using Word 2010 and I have to update a file written by a colleague who has now left the company. In it I have to update an embedded pdf file. This I can do via a couple of methods such as INSERT \ OBJECT \ CREATE FROM FILE \ BROWSE TO FILE \ SHOW AS ICON etc. or via a copy and paste special in a similar manner.

    However each time this gives me a pdf icon with two lines of text below and as the title is quite long the text is truncated. In the past I have lived with this and just shortened the title or added a text box to the icon and grouped the two together.
    Just dragging the corners of the box does not work, the image and text just become distorted.

    However in the document I have to update it seems my colleague who wrote it managed to insert the pdf and show one complete line of text beneath the icon. See figures 01 & 02 below.






    fig 01

    In fact if I alter the length of the title in his version the box automatically resizes to accommodate it.





    fig 02

    The only difference I can find between the two is that the original icon, when you right click on it has the option which describes it as a PACKAGER SHELL OBJECT OBJECT - see below:

    The new embedded pdf has the slightly different option of ACROBAT DOCUMENT OBJECT - see below

    Answer:Embedded pdf file in MS Word - truncated title / caption

    If anyone is interested I now have an answer to this problem of mine.
    To insert the pdf, do as normal...INSERT \ OBJECT \ but this time on the tab "Create New" scroll down to "Package" and select package then press OK - Do Not Tick the "Display as Icon" button.
    Next step is to just browse to your desired file and finish and the file is inserted with the Icon (in this case a pdf icon) and all of the title / caption is displayed on one line beneath it, not truncated.
    Totally unintuitive as what you want is an icon displayed in your document but you do not select this option...who knew!!!

    Q: Has anyone seen this problem and is there a patch or setting for Word XP that fixes it?

    We have a document created in Word 97 with an embedded Excel Spreadhseet object displaying a chart.

    When we open the document in Word 97, everything is normal.

    When we open the document in Word XP the chart is rotated 180 degrees around the vertical axis. The chart is right side up, but the left side of the chart is on the right and all the letters are reversed.

    When I double-click the object to edit it the chart flips around to normal. When I exit edit mode (without making any changes) it flips back.

    When we convert the Excel Worksheet object to an Excel Chart object in Word 97, save the file, and open in Word XP the chart displays normally.

    The problem is that we have an automated PDF converter that uses Word XP, so when we create the PDF, it is created with the reversed chart. We are not staffed to open every Word 97 document and convert spreadsheets to charts. How can we fix this without installing Word 97 on the converter?

    Hello,

    I got an attack last night that looks like it might have used a vulnerability via Adobe Acrobat.

    I was on a page when suddenly Adobe fired up without me having clicked a PDF link. That not being normal, I fired up task manager & killed the Adobe processes immediately. A few seconds later, I got an error message that "wJSQ.exe" had encountered a problem and was shutting down.

    I immediately disabled the LAN connection & did a search for that file. I re-enabled the connection long enough to do a quick web search on it and to update AVG (free edition) & SuperAntiSpyware.

    I ran both programs on my system and neither found the "wJSQ.exe" file, which was in the C:/WINNT/Prefetch file.

    A lot of other files had been created in that directory and the temp directory at the time of the attack (8:50PM MDT). I used ATF cleaner as well as manual (search results) to delete any that are not typically issues (log files, prefetch files, etc). This includes the wJSQ.exe file itself.

    I'm concerned about the following files that a simple search performed; they were all modified/created at 20:50, when the virus files were, but the system won't let me delete them and says they are in use by a running process.

    - {E36E7DE9-5A68-46C4-94FF-DFD3B25A53BD} in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Common Client\ccSubSDK

    Answer:wJSQ.exe attack via Adobe Acrobat / Firefox

    Update: I ran Panda ActiveScan 2.0, which found a few things; I had it fix the stuff it would do for free (the quarrantined A2 file and the other Malware it found). I've posted the log from that. It did not seem to find any of the files that I noted were modified at the time of the attack.

    Just FYI, I have A-Squared, Spybot, Super-Antispyware, AVG (free edition), and Norton on the machine; I keep all of them shut off except Norton most of the time. About once every few weeks, I fire up one of them, update it, and run a scan, just to see if Norton missed anything. Until now, I hadn't found anything.

    Spybot's update wanted me to reboot the computer, but I'm waiting to hear back from someone here before I do that.

    I can re-post the RSIT files if need be.

    Adobe patch thwarts clickjacking attack

    Adobe has published an update to its popular Flash Player software, addressing a much-publicised clickjacking flaw.
    Clickjacking affects multiple applications (including browsers and media players) and creates a means for hackers to trick prospective marks into unknowingly clicking on a link or dialogue. Adobe Flash Player - specifically the microphone and camera access dialogue - was among the products affected.
    Version 10.0.12.36 of Flash Player defends against the attack while also addressing a glitch involving interoperability with Firefox. It deals too with a bug in enforcing cross-domain policies that might be exploited by hackers to bypass security restrictions, as explained in an advisory form Adobe here.
    The new version of Flash player also introduces a whole raft of new features, focusing on the ability to handle audio files, as explained in our earlier story here.
    Adobe published a workaround to defend against the clicking flaw last week, promising a patch by the end of the month, so it's actually ahead of schedule in delivering a security fix.
    The clickjacking issue rose to prominence after two security researchers, Jeremiah Grossman and Robert "RSnake" Hansen, cancelled a planned presentation on the class of vulnerability due to take place at the AppSec 2008 Conference in New York late last month. This created interest in clickjacking, and undoubtedly spurred a security blogger into creating a proof of concept e... Read more

    The name/ type of virus is not known. Norton found it during a recent scan. A week or so ago I had a suspicious email make it into my inbox. The subject was "PO Details and Specifications". I only view my emails in plain text not html and since I didn't recognize  the sender I immediately trashed this email. The trash folder has been subsequently emptied. Although I can no longer see the original email in either the inbox or trash folder, Norton still reports the following as threats:
     
    "PO Details and Specifications. exe"
    "Po Details and Specifications.rar"
    " Unknown 676AD207.data"
    it also references the location as the default profile of Thunderbird's inbox.
     
    All of the above are compressed files and the only Norton fix is to delete the inbox which is not my preferred fix as I don't want to lose those emails.
     
    It was also found in the recyclebin on an earlier scan but after emptying the recycle bin, it wasn't found there any longer.
     
    I ran MBAM and it didn't find that although it found some other files that I deleted that seemd unrelated.
     
    I ran the DDS and have attached the file. I have a screen shot of the Norton report but have not attached that as it reports what is written above.
     
    Suggestions as to what steps to take to remove this will be greatly appreciated. This is my primary email account which I am reluctant to use since I don't want to spread this virus.
     
    Thanks,

    I've been using Microsoft Works 8.5 Word Processor for a few years on Windows 7 and it works fine. However, I was dismayed to find out that I cannot do a bulk search for text across multiple files. It turns out that Works embeds nulls between each character. So CAT in a file is C(null)A(null)T(null). There is no way with any search program that I know of to search all the .wps files in a folder that have the word "CAT" in them.

    I *could* keep two copies of every file (one in .txt format), but my goodness what a pain.

    So I'm looking for:

    a) A program that will do bulk searches of .wps files. (embedded nulls are tricky, you really can't type them in)
    or
    b) Another program that is similar to Works (Office is NOT similar to Works, it's a pain in the neck to use).

    Any help would be *great* appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Answer:Works word processor files not searchable because of embedded nulls

    Hi Donalds, welcome to the Seven Forums.

    It's years since I have even seen Microsoft Works, I am afraid I am not able to tell you how to search files with those embedded nulls.

    However, if I recall it correctly Works can also save using the Rich Text Format (.rtf). If so, you could try if the document content is searchable when saved as .rtf. If so, you would not only solve your issue but also make your documents more interchangeable, as the .rtf files can be shared, opened and edited with almost every modern word processor.

    Trying to remember the various features of Microsoft Works word processor, I think I'm not too much wrong by recommending you the Windows 7 native WordPad word processor, to use it instead of Works. WordPad has all features needed for composing, editing and formatting complex documents. It also handles embedded images very nicely.
