Good thing I already switched over to Chrome then, since I was having some other problems with Ads in the right-had corner and redirects. Still a slight problem, but not as bad as it was, just waiting for the AM and AV to catch up with the problem.

As per title, start to use Chrome, Firefox etc except for IE9.

There is a nasty little virus that when getting by defences, which it can with ease which suggests an exploit (could be Microsoft Security Essentials), starts to play an ad or some audio file which sounds like its from a website then you realise I have no browser pages shown.

It will continue to play the audio either of a Snickers Bar ad or some scientific birth thing. But it is nasty.

If you manually remove it, it doesn't matter as it has infected key system files, so if you remove it forces a 1 minute shutdown even in safe mode.. basically making it impossible to fix manually... even can't use SFC from a windows disc because it flags the installation as waiting on a scan so it won't start.

So yes use another browser for now, but im guessing there will be those who think they know more and will use IE9 anyways, but be warned it can happen to you, I have had to fix 12 PC's the last 3 days because of it.

The files usual haunts

C:\User\*USERNAME*\appdata\xxxx.exe (its always 4 characters and can be anything)

C:\ProgramData\*Some 20+ characters of nothing*\*same as folder name*.exe

Haha I stopped using IE a LONG!! time ago. it sucked already back then :P

I recommend getting the NotScripts add-on. Nothing comes up unless you allow it. Like NoScript for FF. The only ads I get are very rare, and only if it's scripted to come up in a new window, or sometimes a tab.

No new updates for MSE or IE9 yet, so I am saying no. But thats not to say other AVs haven't yet.

EDIT:

There was something similar last year as soon on this forum

forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=81966

Man do their staff help or what lol, great customer service.


and from 2009

www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic275711.html


And from this year, back in Feb

www.pchelpforum.com/xf/threads/audio-ads-playing-in-background-when-nothings-running.129508/

Nasty little git, thats been changed over the years :P

Those of us who actually know HOW to use the browser perhaps? And know how to restrict it's access and protect it?

Personally, while I appreiciate the warning, I'll continue to us IE9 since I've never had any issues with it (Firefox always gives me issues though, which is why I chucked it overboard, and Chrome I refuse to use)



Edit: Ok, it didn't includ the quote? O.o

One person who was infected that I knew of is a holder of an IT Degree, and he knows how to keep his system safe, he does network security for a living.

It was an exploit in IE9 that has been targeted so doesn't matter if you had set it to its highest security setting, it would have still got through.

So I will answer you the same tone you set in your first sentence.

Those of you who think they KNOW HOW to use the browser at its most restrictive, means diddly squat :P
