WARNING:  The link for this separate download of the MSRT is now pre-checking a box to also download "MSN default homepage & Bing default search engine".    Be sure to uncheck this, unless you really want it!

 

Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT, MRT) for September, version 5.40

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/malicious-software-removal-tool-details.aspx 

Reminder:   Users who are paranoid about the remote possibility of a FP can opt to run this tool from a Command Prompt, appending a   /N   parameter [for "detect only" mode].

========================================================

This month's MSRT adds detection/removal of:

Win32/NightClick - This threat can give a malicious hacker unauthorized access and control of your PC. We have seen this click-fraud campaign distributed by software bundlers.

Win32/Prifou - This browser modifier can change your web browser settings without adequate consent.   It can be installed on your PC when you download other software from third-party websites.

Win32/Suweezy - This malware family attempts to exclude certain folders from being scanned by several anti-malware scanners, including Windows Defender. It also installs a service that may be used to download and execute additional malware.  This threat is commonly installed by BrowserModifier:Win32/Sasquor.

Win32/Xadupi - This threat is a trojan that poses as a useful application, usually called WinZipper or QKSee, but can silently download and install other malware.  This trojan is often installed silently by BrowserModifier:Win32/Sasquor or BrowserModifier:Win32/SupTab.

RE: Updates 9/13/16 - "Microsoft Tuesday", Flash

CCleaner v5.22.5724 (13 Sep 2016)

- Improved Windows 10 Anniversary Edition support
- Improved Microsoft Edge Cookie and History cleaning
- Updated Firefox extension management
- Improved 64-bit build architecture on Windows 10
- Updated ZoneAlarm 2016 cleaning
- Minor bug fixes
- Minor GUI improvements

Either be careful to UNcheck any pre-checked offers for bundled programs/toolbars (unless you really want them)... or else, wait a few days until the SLIM build is released.

RE: Updates 9/13/16 - "Microsoft Tuesday", Flash, CCleaner

It's taking a ridiculous time to search for updates today... on the first machine I tried, it took around 4 hours!   I don't know what's going on here emoticon.TongueTied.title .

As a reminder:   This is (supposed to be) the last month that Microsoft is releasing SEPARATE updates for Windows 7 users.   Effective next month, all updates will be combined into a single "super" package --- it'll be "all or nothing".   Supposedly, that will minimize the time it takes to scan.
